Testimony needed: Oppose the next Manaolana development

Remember the Manaolana Place luxury condo-hotel that City Council approved last fall? The same developers’ next big project is scheduled for a public hearing on Wednesday, June 28 at 10:30a at the Mission Memorial Building – Conference Room (550 South King Street, Honolulu, Hawaii).

If approved, a 444-unit condo-hotel will be built on Kapiolani Blvd. where Heald College was. Once again, it’s unclear what benefits we’ll get for our community from a development that’s expected to generate millions of profits for a mainland company developing condos most locals won’t be able to afford.

According to the developer’s permit application: “The Applicant plans to provide 1 unit to meet the affordable housing requirement.” The rest of the “affordable housing” is just “air rights.”

Submit testimony to the Department of Planning & Permitting (DPP) before Wed. June 28. Tell DPP: say NO to reckless development! You can easily submit testimony by filling out this form below:
