Hawaii agency moves up hearings for Howard Hughes, MacNaughton-Kobayashi condo towers
The Hawaii Community Development Authority has rescheduled the decision-making public hearings for The Howard Hughes Corp.’s plan to replace Ward Warehouse and the Kobayashi Group and The MacNaughton Group’s Vida luxury condominium high-rise on a 3.5-acre site in the Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako.
The state agency, which oversees the redevelopment of the fast-growing Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako, originally scheduled the Howard Hughes hearing for Dec. 3, but has moved it to Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving. The presentation hearing for the Kobayashi-MacNaughton project, which is scheduled for Nov. 12 at 9:30 a.m. has not changed, but the new date for the decision-making hearing has also been moved to Nov. 25 at noon, from Dec. 17.
Both hearings will be held at 461 Cooke St. in the Makai Conference Room.
The HCDA already held two public hearings on The Howard Hughes Corp. (NYSE: HHC) project, which includes a total of 236 units in two towers, as well as commercial and recreation space on the site of the current Ward Warehouse.
