Domino Sugar Adds a “Welcome to Locust Point” Sign

| October 25, 2017 | 0 Comments

Domino Sugar recently completed a new “Welcome To Locust Point” painted sign on its building at 1020 Key Hwy. in Locust Point. It is the latest improvement by the ASR Group, Domino’s parent company, to the 24-acre Domino Sugar Baltimore Refinery that has called South Baltimore its home for 95 years.

The mural and brand graphics were designed by local designer Frank Perrelli and the sign was hand-painted by local sign painter and muralist Greg Gannon. The front door was also painted to look like a Domino Sugar bag. “The lettering in the welcome mural match those in the retro blue and yellow sign that was installed on the eastern portion of our new fence last November,” said Peter O’Malley, vice president of corporate relations at ASR Group, in an email to

This building had its exterior refurbished over a year ago in anticipation of the new graphics.

“This is part of the continuing beautification improvements here at the refinery that also helps to tell our story to neighbors and visitors,” said O’Malley. “We’re proud of our business and the fact that we’ve been located in Locust Point for more than 95 years.”

The improvements completed last year include the replacement of more than 250 windows; a 2,000 ft.-long black steel picket fence that replaced the original 1922 iron fencing; two new signs; landscaping improvements; and a new retaining wall for the truck lot at Key Hwy. and Stevenson St. The wall includes a modular biofiltration system to treat storm water.
