The Hawaii Community Development Authority has approved two Kakaako residential projects being developed by Hawaii developer Stanford Carr and Oregon-based developer Gerding Edlen

Hawaii developer Stanford Carr’s Keauhou Lane Kakaako mixed-use residential project should begin construction in August, the developer said Thursday at an industry event in Waikiki.

Last month, Carr told PBN that the project, which is located on the bloack at 500 South St. and 500 Keawe St. and includes 388 residential units in a 400-foot tower, along with 35 townhome units in a 42-foot mid-rise tower, would start construction in July.

Carr, a panelist at the International Council of Shopping Centers Hawaii Idea Exchange event, gave a presentation about Keauhou Lane.

“Let’s create and define transit-oriented development and mixed-use,” said Carr, noting that a rail transit station will be integrated into the development.

Carr told PBN that his firm, Stanford Carr Development, is near to closing on the project’s construction loan and that it should get its foundation building permit soon.

So far, he said, sales have been good for the project.

Keauhou Lane also includes another project being developed by Oregon’s Gerding Edlen on behalf of landowner Kamehameha Schools.

This project includes 209 residential units in a 65-foot mid-rise building and 39,145-square-feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Both projects are expected to be completed in 2017.

Keauhou Lane is located near Carr’s recently completed Halekauwila Place rental project, which mostly has local occupants, according to Carr, who also pointed out that both the residential and commercial units of the project are 100-percent leased.

Halekauwila Place’s commercial tenants include Uproll Cafe, Kakaako Wine & Sake Collection, a convenience store, hair salon and a soft drink store.

Hawaii developer Stanford Carr’s Keauhou Lane project in the Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako, which was slated to start construction in late March or early May, is now scheduled to begin construction in July, the developer confirmed to PBN this week.

The project, which is located on the block at 500 South St. and 500 Keawe St., includes 388 residential units in a 400-foot tower, along with 35 townhome units in a 42-foot mid-rise tower.

Carr told PBN that his firm, Stanford Carr Development, is nearing the closure of the project’s construction loan and should be getting a foundation building permit soon.

Sales for the project have been good thus far, he said.

Keauhou Lane also includes another project being developed by Oregon’s Gerding Edlen on behalf of landowner Kamehameha Schools.

That project includes 209 residential units in a 65-foot mid-rise building and 39,145 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Hawaii Architecture and Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co. Inc. are architects and general contractor for that project.

Keauhou Lane also will include a planned rail transit station.

Alakea Design Group and Richard Matsunaga & Associates are the architects and Hawaiian Dredging Construction is the general contractor for the Keauhou Lane project.

Both projects are expected to be completed in 2017.

Stanford Carr prepares to launch newest project

This architect’s rendering previews the look of the Keauhou Lane residential high-rise.

Stanford Carr Development is slated to start construction on its Keauhou Lane project in Kakaako in late March or early April of 2015.

The project includes 388 residential units in a 400-foot high-rise tower and 35 townhouse units in a 42-foot mid-rise tower. Alakea Design Group and Richard Matsunaga & Associates are the architects and Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co. Inc. is the general contractor.

In an exclusive interview with PBN this week, Stanford Carr, president and founder of the Hawaii-based firm that bears his name, talked about how the transformation of Kakaako is going, as well as updates on his projects across the state.

A Keauhou Lane sales office opened recently in a former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development office at Waterfront Plaza.

“We’re just giving the consumer options,” Carr said of his project. “The people who come in are local families, couples. There must have been 40 people at one time that I’ve seen. It’s exciting and there’s lots of energy.”

Sales of Keauhou Lane, which will be near a Honolulu rail transit station, are expected to begin in early January.

“We’re closing on our construction loan [soon], and we’re already going for [building] permits,” Carr said.

The block at 500 South St. and 500 Keawe St. includes a project by Oregon-based developer Gerding Edlen on behalf of landowner Kamehameha Schools. That project includes 209 residential units in a 65-foot mid-rise building and 39,145 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

“There’s already pent-up demand from the last four years, starting in 2008,” Carr said of the housing market in Hawaii. “What The Howard Hughes Corp. is offering satisfies a sector, what [Alexander & Baldwin Inc.], we and Marshall Hung are offering also satisfies a sector of the market.

“Hawaii’s got a bright future ahead of itself,” Carr said. “We have seen the cycles of the last 30-plus years. History will repeat itself. There’s a lot more confidence [these days].”

The entire development will be located on the site of a surface parking lot adjacent to Carr’s Halekauwila rental project and bounded by Halekauwila, Pohukaina, South and Keawe streets.

Combined, the projects will have about 50,000 square feet of recreational space and more than 65,000 square feet of open space.

Carr’s portion will take up about 93,000 square feet of “Block A” of Kamehameha Schools’ “Our Kakaako” master plan, which includes 29 acres on nine city blocks, seven residential towers that include 2,750 units, and 300,000 square feet of commercial space.

Gerding Edlen’s portion includes 69,387 square feet of property with live-work units, rental apartments and ground-floor commercial space. The six-story building will have a mix of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.

The Hawaii Community Development Authority has approved two Kakaako residential projects being developed by Hawaii developer Stanford Carr and Oregon-based developer Gerding Edlen on the same block totaling 632 units.

Keauhou Lane’s portion of the project at 500 South St. includes a mix of 388 residential units, which will have one-, two- and three-bedroom units in a 400-foot high-rise building, along with a mix of 35 townhouse units that will have two- and three-bedroom units in a 42-foot mid-rise tower, as well as 2,854 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, 1,038 square feet of vehicle stalls in a 72-foot parking structure, about 13,000 square feet of open space and 31,400 square feet of recreation space.

The Gerding Edlen project at 500 Keawe St., which is being developed on behalf of landowner Kamehameha Schools, includes a mix of 209 residential units that will have studio, one- and two-bedroom units in a 65-foot mid-rise building, 39,145 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, four loading stalls, about 13,600 square feet of open space and 11,500 square feet of recreation space.

The request was for a joint development permit for two separate mixed-use residential, commercial/retail development projects being built at the same time by Carr and Gerding Edlen.

Keauhou Lane requested a modification from the mauka area rules to increase the podium’s height to about 72 feet and cause a partial obstruction of the South Street view corridor, while Gerding Edlen asked for a modification from the same rules to increase the podium’s height to about 65 feet.

Meantime, also at Wednesday’s meeting, the HCDA, which oversees the redevelopment of Kakaako, held an initial public hearing for Castle & Cooke and Kamehameha Schools’ 183 rental and for-sale workforce housing units located on the block bounded by Auahi, Keawe and Pohukaina streets.

Seven members of the public testified in support of the project and one person testified in opposition, said HCDA spokeswoman Lindsey Doi.

The project’s second public hearing will be held on June 10 with a decision-making hearing scheduled for July 9.

The two private developers are requesting a joint development permit for their two separate mixed-use, residential, commercial/retail projects.

The projects will be built simultaneously, with construction starting later this year and completion targeted in 2016.

Castle & Cooke and Kamehameha Schools are asking for a modification to increase the area’s building height restriction from 45 feet to 65 feet.

Portland-based Gerding Edlen Development will develop a 209-unit workforce housing project adjacent to Stanford Carr Development’s Keauhou Lane project on South Street in Kakaako.

The Hawaii Community Development Authority has scheduled public hearings in March and April for two planned Kakaako residential projects that sit on the same parcel.

One is at 500 South St. — Hawaii developer Stanford Carr’s Keauhou Lane project — and the other is at 500 Keawe St. — Oregon-based developer Gerding Edlen’s project.

The first public hearing at 9 a.m. Wednesday, March 19, will give developers an opportunity to officially present their plans.

The second hearing, which is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday, April, will give the public another opportunity to voice their opinions about the project with the possibility of the HCDA making a decision at that time.

Both hearings will take place at the HCDA’s office at 461 Cooke St. in Honolulu.

The request is for a joint development permit for two separate mixed-use residential, commercial/retail development projects being built at the same time by Carr and Gerding Edlen.

Keauhou Lane’s portion of the project includes a mix of 388 residential units, which will have one-, two- and three-bedroom units in a 400-foot high-rise building, along with a mix of 35 townhouse units that will have two- and three-bedroom units in a 42-foot mid-rise tower, as well as 2,854 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, 1,038 square feet of vehicle stalls in a 72-foot parking structure, about 13,000 square feet of open space and 31,400 square feet of recreation space.

Off-street parking for the project is expected to be provided in a parking podium constructed as part of the Keauhou Lane development with facilities such as loading areas, open space and recreation space being shared between both projects.

Keauhou Lane is requesting a modification from the Mauka Area Rules to increase the podium’s height to about 72 feet and cause a partial obstruction of the South Street view corridor.
