This morning (6/28/13), our board of directors again met with the principal of the Kaonoulu plots of land (behind the long black screen mauka of the Pi’ilani Hwy), Sarofim Realty Advisors of Dallas , Texas, Robert Poynor. The meeting direction was guided by KCA’s lengthy letter to Sarofim back on June 14, which can be viewed at .http://www.gokihei.org/environment/kca-communicates-with-sarofim-realty-advisers-regarding-commercial-development. Again participating was Jack Selman from Architects Orange, as well as owner’s on-island rep, Charlie Jencks and his assistant Tom Blackburn Rodriguez. Mr. Selman presented a power point outlining some preliminary concepts of the proposed, but as yet unnamed project, while accepting comments and suggestions from our directors.
Some of the general concepts included a residential section toward the rear (mauka ) of the lands for a three story “walk-up” apartments of between 150 and 200 units segregated for the commercial sections. (Note: This is not part of the Honua’ula <formerly Wailea 670> work force housing development adjacent to the Sarofim proposal, although Mr Jencks ia a part of both projects in this same area.)
KCA will consider the information offered today, and submit some written comments likely leading to a future meeting looking at some more specific aspects of the proposed project..
