The Hawaii Community Development Authority approved on Tuesday plans for 400 Keawe, a mixed-use development and housing project, to be built in Kakaako.

The project will be located on the block bound by Auahi, Keawe and Pohukaina streets.

The project is a joint venture of Castle & Cooke Homes Hawaii and Kamehameha Schools. According to Bruce Barrett, C&C executive vice-president, 400 Keawe will be “a 65-foot, six-story low rise mixed-use condominium with 75 market-priced and 20 reserved residential housing units.” Kamehameha Schools will also offer 88 reserved housing rental units, and with the 20 reserved residential housing units, the project will offer a total of 108 reserved housing units

The 88 residential units will include 40 studios, 16 one-bedroom units, 16 one-bedrooms plus den units, 8 two-bedroom units, and 8 three-bedroom units – all of which will be rented to middle-income workers and their families.

The entire block will provide over 28,600 square feet of open areas accessible to the public that will feature a 14,500-square foot plaza, abundant bicycle parking, a doggie run, mid-block pedestrian passage and activated streetscapes. It will also serve as a public pathway to and from the future Honolulu rail transit station located one block away on Halekauwila Street. All open areas will be finished with specialty paving, landscaping that includes native species, and shaded by canopy trees.

Developers hope to break ground later this year with completion expected in 2016.
