The Office of Hawaiian Affairs announced Monday it is leasing the lot that formerly housed Fisherman’s Wharf to Street Grindz, LLC.
Street Grindz organizes the monthly Eat the Street and Honolulu Night Market events in Kakaako.
The agreement provides Street Grindz with interim access rights for daily activities at the site, while OHA prepares a master plan for the use of the 30 acres of land it owns in Kaka‘ako Makai.
For the last few months, Street Grindz has been working with MoJo – The Business of Food, and collaborating with OHA, planning and conceptualizing future plans for Kakaako Makai.
“Street Grindz has created exciting and interesting dining concepts,” said Kamanaopono Crabbe, Ka Pouhana (CEO) of OHA in a press release. “This interim use will help make our Kaka‘ako Makai lands a gathering place while we continue to work on a master plan for future development.”
Plans for construction will begin in April, with an expected completion date this summer.
