I know this is an older thread... I gotta say I love the lines on the rendering for the future Medical Facility slated for construction in Honolulu, HI. Kudos to that! Hope to visit soon to see how all of this building activity comes to fruition.

:thumbsup:

Trump tower right now appears to be my favorite, but it looks like Phase 1 of the Waikiki beach walk is going to make a huge impact on the waterfront. What are the height restrictions if any, and also what is the height of these 5 developments?

^I think they are finished by now?

Here's another proposed project for Kapolei the "2nd City" (more like largest suburb!)

Kapolei may be home to huge office complex

A local developer plans to construct the biggest building yet in the growing "second city" of Kapolei.

Avalon Development Co. LLC, through affiliate Kapolei 60 LLC, bought a 3-acre parcel across the street from the Kapolei public library last week for $6.7 million, where it plans to put up a 335,000-square-foot office complex rising 11 stories.

The $180 million project called Kapolei Pacific Center is expected to break ground in about eight months and open in January 2009.

The developer cautioned that the project could be killed if a City Council bill proposing a moratorium on real estate development along the city's contemplated mass-transit line is adopted.

The City Council postponed action on the proposal yesterday.

"It could have killed the financial viability of our project," said Christine Camp Friedman, Avalon president and CEO.

A development moratorium could have prevented Avalon from obtaining building permits, threatening the project by creating a significant and potentially indefinite delay.

"That would have a very negative impact on an area that is supposed to be the second city and a place (where) higher-density growth is encouraged," she said.

2 BUILDINGS PLANNED

Kapolei Pacific Center is designed as two buildings and a parking structure with about 900 spaces. Of the 335,000 square feet, 285,000 square feet would be for office tenants, and 50,000 square feet on the ground floor would be for retail.

An initial phase would include one seven-story building, followed by an 11-story second phase.

The project would be taller and bigger than other Kapolei buildings, including Bank of Hawaii's 248,000-square-foot office building and the state's office building with 215,000 square feet.

The condos -- described as mid-rise, with allowable building heights of up to 130 feet -- would include some units set aside for hotel use or time-shares.

Something bad WILL happen, it's only a matter of time. Place your bets! The hope is for financial success and gain before a tsunami takes it all down.

I'm sure its a concern just as any city that is built near the sea/ocean like Singapore, Hong Kong, San Diego, etc. but hopefully those that buy into it realize there's a risk.

^No it's just going to be dorms and expensive ones to rent at that.

Here's a from above rendering of a new New traffic center to help response times. It is located near the edge of the Capitol District of Honolulu just east of Downtown where many of the important buildings are located.

The new building at the corner of King and Alapai streets will allow the city to consolidate its traffic control center and its emergency operations center into one place near the Honolulu Police Department's headquarters. he traffic management center would improve response times to crashes and to clear roadways of debris, provide information to motorists about alternate routes, and offer better traffic management.

^The Capitol District is actually a pretty nice area, lots of greenery and surprisngly for Honolulu not very dense.

Here's an aerial of part of the area

It extends a bit more to the right or east which is where the traffic center will be located.
