Keauhou Place – 555 South St.


Planned Year Built: 2017
Stories: 40
Units: 600

The project, part of Kamehameha Schools’ extensive Our Kaka‘ako master plan, will be constructed at 555 South St., the parking lot where Eat the Street now takes place.

Keauhou Lane — located on the block bound by South, Halekauwila, Keawe and Pohukaina Streets — will break ground sometime in late 2014 and take appromixately 15-20 months to complete.

The neighborhood will feature walkable “complete streets” part of a new urban neighborhood vision of Kamehameha Schools. The redevelopment of the entire 9 Block neighborhood will take place over 15-20 years.

Stanford Carr will develop approximately 93,000 square feet of the property, including a 40-story tower called Keauhou Place (with 400+ residential units), as well as a parking structure for all uses on a block that will be lined with some 35 townhomes along South and Pohukaina streets. Kamehameha Schools, meanwhile, will develop about 70,000 square feet of the property, including some 150-170 live-work units and rental apartments, along with ground floor retail spaces.

“Developer Stanford and Kamehameha Schools on Friday formally announced plans for Keauhou Lane in Kakaako, a project that includes a 40-story tower consisting of 600 residential units as well as a low-rise mixed-use residential project with 200 workforce rental apartments.

The $300 million project, which will be located on the site of a surface parking lot along South Street, adjacent to Carr’s Halekauwila rental project and bounded by Halekauwila and Pohukaina streets as well as South and Keawe streets, includes a variety of housing options such as rental apartments, lofts, townhomes, a high-rise tower and live-work space and retail shops and a neighborhood grocery store.

Carr’s Stanford Carr Development would develop the 600 units in the tower, while Kamehameha Schools would develop the workforce rental apartments.

An estimated 40 percent of the housing units at Keauhou Lane will be reserved for middle-income workers. To qualify for a unit, renters may earn up to 100 percent of Honolulu’s median income and fee-simple buyers may earn up to 140 percent to qualify, Carr and Kamehameha Schools said.” Pacific Business News July 26, 2013
