The Hawaii Community Development Authority board is holding a public hearing on the permit application for the second phase at 801 South Street.

The hearing is set for Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 9:00 a.m. to allow the applicant to present the proposed project to the HCDA and to provide the public with the opportunity to present testimony.

Downtown Capitol LLC plans to develop a second residential tower and an accompanying parking garage on the former Honolulu Advertiser property.

The proposal includes a 46-story residential tower fronting Kapiolani Boulevard with 410 units and a 10-story parking garage on the corner of Kapiolani Boulevard and South Street Street. The parking garage is partly surrounded by the existing Honolulu Advertiser building.

The first phase of the 801 South Street project started construction on Aug. 1, 2013 with a 46-story, 635 unit residential tower on the corner of South Street and Kawaihao Street. The initial phase was approved by the HCDA on Dec. 5, 2012.

The project is being built as a “workforce housing project” and certain variances are being requested in the permit. These variances are included on the second page of the public hearing notice at this link (PDF).

This public hearing will be followed by a decision-making meeting on Dec. 4, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.
