Katie Murar reported in the Pacific Business News about one of our new development proposals. The Hale Makana O Maili development on the Waianae Coast is an affordable rental complex. Here is an excerpt from the article, Affordable rental project proposed for Oahu's Waianae Coast:
A 52-unit affordable rental development called Hale Makana O Maili is being proposed for Maili on the Waianae Coast.
The low-rise rental apartment complex will be built on a 1.95-acre portion of a 2.78-acre parcel on the Waianae Coast, will consist of six buildings, and will be designated for those making 30 to 60 percent of the area median income. The design will include 39,030 square feet of residential space, a 2,342 square foot community center, and 70 parking stalls, according to a draft environmental assessment filed with the Hawaii State Department of Health’s Office of Environmental Quality Control.
The project is being developed by Pacific Development Group, 3 Leaf Holdings, Inc. and the Hawaiian Community Development Board.
“This project attempts to address one of the most difficult challenges for our local people – access to affordable housing,” Kali Watson, CEO of the Hawaiian Community Development Board, told Pacific Business News. “Only through a collective effort of private developers like ourselves, government agencies, and the community at large can we provide such solutions.”
