Hawaii agency considers update to Kakaako development plan
As written on the "Pacific Business News Morning Call" online, "The Hawaii Community Development Authority is meeting Wednesday to consider an update to the planning guidelines for the Kakaako section of Honolulu that have been in place since 1982."
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that the changes would incorporate preserving views and improving pedestrian activity while still promoting mixed-use development that could include the construction of residential towers as high as 400 feet. The newspaper says the HCDA, which has spent more than $200 million on infrastructure in the past 30 years, estimates it would need to spend another $126.5 million on infrastructure upgrades. The newspaper says the plan also estimates the population of the area would nearly double, from 20,000 to 35,000 by 2030.
