KCA BOD discussed development plans for mauka No. Kihei with Sarofim Realty

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..

    Much appreciation goes to Mike Moran and the volunteer KCA Board of Directors for their time in meeting with Sarofim Realty Advisors.

    Mike’s expression at the end of the meeting thanking Sarofim Realty for the meeting (the third since June 4, 2013) was gracious and sincere. His comments were echoed by the KCA board members attending the meeting.

    The next step is to continue meeting with the KCA and various community groups and organizations and to take the KCA suggestions and those of others in order to produce a more detailed design for additional comment before being finalized.
