Kihei Piilani Promenade Project

October 4, 2013

The Piilani Promenade project has been revised, and if it gets built, it will be a rather large commercial and residential real estate addition to South Maui. The plan originally included a 700,000-square-foot retail center called the Maui Outlets and Piilani Promenade, but the Hawaii Land Use Commission rejected the outlet and retail center plan because the developer didn’t meet zoning conditions. Now the plan has changed.

Texas-based Sarofim Realty Advisors have recently taken over the project, and are proposing 200 apartment units, along with some light industrial, business and commercial use space on 75 acres of land in Kihei. They have recently submitted their environmental impact statement preparation notice to the state, with an outline of its current plans.

This development would mean a significant change to the landscape in Kihei, so it’s well worth following. Eventually, we will find out how the draft EIS will be received, and whether the project will be approved. It will also be interesting to know what the impacts of the project will be, once the technical analysis of the report is complete.

For those concerned about the potential infrastructure strains caused by a project this size, it will also include improvements to water, sewer, roads, drainage, electrical, bycicle and pedestrian pathways, landscaping and is also expected to have a Maui Electric Co. substation. The off-site improvements of the plan include a one million gallon drinking water tank along with water transmission lines and road widening.

We hope you’ve found this blog informative, especially if you are considering a South Maui real estate purchase, or you are already a resident. We post blogs every Friday, so check in for further updates on this project in the future. If you need assistance with your real estate search, you’ll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. Mahalo! – By Mark Harbison
