Duane Shimogawa Reporter – Pacific Business News
A California developer’s plan to build a second condominium-hotel tower in Waikiki that would be next door to its Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach, project currently under construction on Kuhio Avenue, is currently being reviewed by the City and County of Honolulu with a public hearing scheduled for June 6.
Pacrep LLC is aiming to get a Special District Permit for the construction of its 39-story, 350-foot condo-hotel, which consists of up to 280 units, including support facilities, resident services, recreational amenities, streetscape improvements and commercial uses.
The proposed building at 2139 Kuhio Ave. will share an eight-story podium with the developer’s other condo-hotel at 2121 Kuhio Ave., which will contain shared resident services, recreational amenities, vehicle access and off-street parking.
The public hearing on June 6 is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. in the Mission Memorial Auditorium at 550 S. King St. in Honolulu.
In February, Pacrep cleared a key environmental hurdle with the city determining that no environmental impact statement will be needed for the development.
