An interesting article on CivilBeat... :hmm:

Is Kapolei a Mistake?
Oahu's "Second City" doesn't meet the generally accepted elements of "smart growth" and even city officials are putting more emphasis on development along the Honolulu rail line.

MAY 27, 2015
By ANITA HOFSCHNEIDER

The 1977 decision to transform fields of sugar cane in West Oahu into a new city known as Kapolei is one of Honolulu’s most significant planning decisions.

Nearly $11 billion has been spent on major infrastructure, commercial and industrial improvements in the Kapolei region over the last 10 years, and billions more are expected.

But some urban planners now think that starting a community from scratch miles away from downtown Honolulu was a bad idea.

Originally envisioned as a solution for Honolulu’s affordable housing crisis and bad traffic congestion, Kapolei is still largely a residential community. Many residents spend hours commuting to and from urban Honolulu for work.

The decision to leapfrog growth into Kapolei has had the added effect of promoting development on what had once been productive farmland and creating urban sprawl.

In an ideal world, some planners think Kapolei would not have been developed the way it has been. Instead, Honolulu would include more high-density low-rise and mid-rise buildings, rather than so many single-family homes and skyscrapers.

Project: Halewaiolu Residences



Quote:
The City and County of Honolulu has chosen The Michaels Development Co. to develop a $49 million affordable senior rental housing project in Chinatown.

A selection committee made the decision to enter into negotiations with the developer to build the Halewaiolu Residences at the corner of River Street and Vineyard Boulevard.

The project will include 151 units in two mid-rise towers for residents 62 years of age and older with an annual income of $53,700 or lower for a single person. Most of the units will be available for seniors with incomes of $40,260 or lower.

The project will have three parking levels, a street-level community center and retail space.

Project: 630 Cooke Street



Quote:
The Hawaii Community Development Authority, which had issued a request for proposals for the project, chose Bronx Pro’s development team of EAH Housing, Sustainable Living Innovations LLC, Construction Management & Development Hawaii LLC and Swinerton Builders to develop the 10,400-square-foot parcel at 630 Cooke St., located between Sunshine Scuba and Baby Emporium, that’s currently being used as a surface parking lot.

The $33 million Nohana Hale project includes 105 low-income, energy-efficient micro-units in two separate 17-story towers set upon a two-level podium, which will house the lobby, living room, community spaces and management offices.

Please please please make an effort to note the Architect

for all projects! These projects would not be possible without the creative imput of the ARCHITECT!

Why is it always in any article on a project that the owners, contractor, etc. are always mentioned BUT NEVER THE ARCHITECT!!!

This site is I bet primarily looked at and participated in by Architects and designers.

Please show some class and courtesy.

Thank you.

^^^^

Often multiple architects design such towers. In terms of mentioning them, usually the tabloids do, but not always in the sense of every article. As a project progresses, a numerous articles come out, there is mention. But keep in mind many of these sources are business related, and the clients that read them or people in the industry tend to be interested in dollar values, project specifications, and developers along with key personnel.

You'll find the same thing in Crain's, WSJ, Times, TRD, and Forbes. But I do agree. There should be more depth into the actual architect(s). Hence when it comes to commercial real estate, thier interested in the business aspect of it.

I try to look for the architect associated to a project at every possible moment, but it's not very easy especially when articles themselves don't list them

what makes it even harder is when developers web sites either don't list the architect(s) that are a part of the project
or the architect's site does not list the project that their associated with

Aloha Kai


Honolulu condo project on YMCA site near Ala Moana Center to start construction in early 2016

Aug 4, 2015, 12:06pm HST

Reporter
Pacific Business News

The 117-unit, 37-story “Aloha Kai” condominium project planned for the site of the YMCA of Honolulu Central branch on Atkinson Drive across from Ala Moana Center is expected to start construction by early 2016, the developer of the project confirmed to PBN Tuesday.

Aloha Kai encountered a delay after the developer asked for a zoning change that included increasing the its height limit to 350 feet from 150 feet.

Kakaako development plan includes hotels, high-rises

Jul 10, 2015, 12:30pm HST
Duane Shimogawa
Reporter
Pacific Business News

The Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako — one of the communities that’s a part of the city’s transit-oriented development plan — could be getting a limited number of hotels and a maximum of three high-rise residential condominiums with heights up to 700-feet, according to public documents.

The Hawaii Community Development Authority, the state agency regulating development of Kakaako, released its final environmental impact statement for the area’s transit-oriented development overlay plan. Among other things, the plan identifies specific properties for public/private development partnerships, allows and promotes a mix of building types, increases opportunities for both affordable housing and for overall development capacity while reducing parking requirements.

The plan also promotes transit-friendly and community-supportive land uses to encourage “around the clock” activity in and near transit stations, establishes an incentive program to trade developers higher capacity and taller buildings in exchange for providing more open space, and provides landscaped "green connections" and mid-block paths when parcels are consolidated for redevelopment.

803 Waimanu

Kakaako condo builder touts prices
As little as $240,000 will fetch purchasers an 803 Waimanu unit, a report tells the state

By Andrew Gomes

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jun 15, 2015

The views aren't great, living spaces are mostly small and in some cases there's no parking. But the price may be unbeatable at an upcoming condominium in Kaka­ako where million-dollar homes in swanky towers abound. The developer of the planned midrise called 803 Wai­manu, which was approved by the state last year, has projected potential prices described as among the lowest on the market for the most economical units in the 153-unit condo.

South Korean developer has big plans for Kapiolani

A 485-unit tower would rise about 400 feet and would be available to mostly moderate-income buyers

By Andrew Gomes

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Mar 30, 2015

A South Korean company that owns two lots on Kapiolani Boulevard hopes to use the state affordable-housing law to build a pair of condominium towers that would be largely reserved for moderate-income buyers and would be bigger than zoning rules permit. SamKoo Pacific LLC shared plans for an initial 485-unit tower with the Ala Moana-Kakaako Neighborhood Board last week.

Chinese developer may build high-rise residential project near Honolulu's Ala Moana Center

Apr 3, 2015, 11:21am HST
Duane Shimogawa
Reporter
Pacific Business News

A Chinese developer has purchased property along Kapiolani Boulevard near Ala Moana Center in Honolulu, with possible plans to build a high-rise condominium project, the seller and the firm representing the buyer of the property confirmed with PBN on Friday.

Hong Kong’s Qinghua International Holdings Ltd. closed on the purchase this week of a nearly 30,000-square-foot parcel at 1338 Kapiolani Blvd. for about $15.4 million, nearly triple the amount four Hawaii partners paid for the property 10 years ago.

Ron Lee, a principal for Honolulu-based Real Estate Inc. Hawaii, who is one of the partners for the sellers, told PBN that the Chinese developer is also under contract to buy the next-door property to possibly build a residential project in a joint venture with a local developer.

Proposed 350-foot condo tower in Waikiki met with major opposition

A Japanese firm’s 350-foot mixed-use condominium-hotel tower being planned for the former property of the Kyo-ya Restaurant in Waikiki was met with strong opposition by some community members and the area’s neighborhood board.

Keith Kurahashi, president of the Honolulu-based planning and zoning consulting firm Kusao & Kurahashi Inc. presented plans for the 176-unit “One Waikiki” project to the Waikiki Neighborhood Board, which opposed the project because of height limit concerns.
