Kamehameha Schools announces 4th project for Kakaako

Another residential project is planned for Kakaako — one that’s being designed for the local market.

It’s part of Kamehameha Schools’ master plan for the area, which includes three other developments. It’s called Keauhou Lane and nearly half of the units will be reserved for middle-income workers. But there is still no clear answer as to what kind of education will be provided.

The parking lot at 555 South Street hosts the popular Eat the Street event in Kakaako. But in a few years, it will become Keauhou Lane, the latest mixed-use residential project planned for Oahu’s “third city.”

“This isn’t coming from the sidelines, with commentary and no idea what kind of planning is going to be necessary to see to it that our young people will be able to having housing that otherwise won’t exist,” Gov. Neil Abercrombie said.

Landowner Kamehameha Schools and developer Stanford Carr are building a 40-story tower, live-work units, rental apartments and commercial space.

It’s part of Kamehameha Schools’ plan that’s spread across 29 acres and was approved four years ago.

Last October, Kamehameha Schools announced the completion of the residential project, Six Eighty Ala Moana. This past April, the landowner announced A&B Properties’ The Collection and in June, Salt at Our Kakaako.

Construction is expected to begin next year and should wrap up in 2016.

New Kakaako tower plan relatively unopposed



Developers proposing a condominium tower largely surrounded by midrise town homes and rental apartments on a parking lot in Kakaako sailed through an initial public hearing Wednesday, attracting hardly a speck of the dissent raised last year on a similar project nearby.

The Hawaii Community Development Authority, the state agency regulating development in Kakaako, held the hearing on Keauhou Lane, a project featuring a 43-story condo tower, 632 residential units, parking for 1,038 cars and about 39,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space on a 4.2-acre block bordered by South, Pohukaina, Halekauwila and Keawe streets.

Agency board members heard from several development consultants explaining aspects of the project including traffic impacts, sewer capacity, tower spacing, height limits and a planned connection to the city’s rail line.

Public testimony, however, was scant. Two project supporters were the only ones to testify in person at the hearing. Nine pieces of written testimony were submitted, with eight favoring Keauhou Lane.

[...]

The HCDA plans to host two public meetings next month — on April 12 at 10 a.m. and on April 15 at 5:30 p.m. — to review Keauhou Lane details at its offices at 461 Cooke St. A second public hearing on Keauhou Lane is scheduled for April 30 at

9 a.m., at which time the agency is expected to make a decision.

Approved: http://kakaakoproperties.com/hcda-approves-another-condo-tower-kakaako/

May 7, 2014

The Hawaii Community Development Authority, the state agency regulating development in Kakaako, voted 8-0 Wednesday to approve the Keauhou Lane project, which features a 43-story condo tower, 632 residential units, parking for 1,038 cars and about 39,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space on a 4.2-acre block bordered by South, Pohukaina, Halekauwila and Keawe streets.

Wednesday’s vote is the final approval the project needs from the HCDA. The developer still needs building permits and expects to start construction next year.

Stanford Carr’s Keauhou Lane project in Honolulu to start construction in March

Hawaii developer Stanford Carr’s Keauhou Lane project, which includes 388 residential units in a 400-foot high-rise tower, along with 35 townhouse units in a 42-foot mid-rise tower, is slated to start construction in late March or early April, the developer told PBN Tuesday.

Alakea Design Group and Richard Matsunaga & Associates are the architects and Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co. Inc. is the general contractor for the project.

In an exclusive interview with PBN on Tuesday, Carr talked about how he feels the transformation of the Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako is going, as well as updates on his projects across the state, including Keauhou Lane.

A sales office for the project recently opened at a former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development office at Waterfront Plaza in Downtown Honolulu.
