While our district extends from Maalaea to Ahihi Kenau, the sub area of “Kihei” is usually considered between N. Kihei Road (NKR) and Kilohana. While recent community focus has been on high-end residential development further south in Wailea, here we are looking at projects proposed for Kihei that have not yet broken ground. It is a mix of rentals and for sale (fee simple), some geared to families and other to seniors and some better than others for a variety of reasons.
We begin with six:
Hale Kaiola, at NW corner of Kaiola and Ohukai. Fee simple homes expected to break ground this summer SEE https://gokihei.org/?s=hale+kaiola
Kai’ulu O Halele’a, located within the R & T Park on Lipoa Parkway mauka of the golf course. This is Ikaika Ohana’s second affordable rental housing project in Kihei. Also expected to break ground this summer.
Kilohana Makai, located near the intersection of S. Kihei Rd. and Kilohana, 28 single family workforce houses for sale. No information on next step.
Liloa Hale Senior Project, located on Liloa south of Welakahou, adjacent to Hope Chapel. 117 rental units in a single 3 story building. Expected to break ground in 2022.
Waipuilani Affordable Workforce Housing, located near intersection of E Waipuilani and S. Kihei Road, 28-31 fee simple town homes. Initial phase in challenging location.
Kihei Wailani Village, located off Ho’onani St. mauka of Waipuilani Park. 81 fee simple condo units. New owner bought project seemingly located in Waipuilani River gulch.
There are two other projects that seemed to be ready to proceed years ago before disappearing from the radar. Coconut wireless indicates they may be back.
Presented are a total of eight proposed residential projects for Kihei. We will continue to do our best to watch them and advise the community so you can voice your opinion when the time comes.
