Honolulu skyline expands with taller buildings

1 post in this topic

Okay, I have to admit that the title is a little misleading because the height's that are being allowed in certain parts of the city aren't all that high but the good news is that the city council knows that its the smart thing to do especially because of the high construction costs and finite land available. So who know's we may see the city finally exceed the 500 ft. level in the near future as the demand for affordable housing continues to grow. :D

A proposed Makiki residential high-rise would exceed the height limit in the neighborhood by 70 feet, the latest of several projects to seek height exemptions in what experts say could be a trend as condominium developers counter rising construction costs by building higher.

The developers of Holomua, planned for 1315 Kalakaua Ave., say the high-rise project wouldn't make economic sense at 150 feet
