The Howard Hughes Corp. is scheduled to present plans in May for its $20 million upgrade to the Kewalo Basin Harbor that’s directly across from its 60-acre Ward Village master-planned community in Honolulu.
The Hawaii Community Development Authority has scheduled a presentation hearing for May 4 at 1 p.m. at its office on Queen Street in Honolulu.
A decision-making hearing is scheduled for June 1 at 1 p.m. at the same venue.
Howard Hughes’ Kewalo Harbor Development Co. LLC is requesting a development permit from the HCDA, the state agency regulating development in the Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako, to do the upgrades.
The project, which has been estimated to cost between $15 million and $20 million, consists of building 214 boat slips in two phases, as well as various maintenance, upgrades and modernization of existing harbor infrastructure, including installing a dedicated marine fueling facility.
Last week, the Texas-based developer, which took over management duties of the harbor in September, received approval from the HCDA to undergo a $3.5 million upgrade on the Fisherman’s Wharf loading dock at Kewalo Basin Harbor that is part of the overall renovation of the harbor.
