The Kakaako Community Development District Mauka and Makai Area Plans and Rules are designed to guide the redevelopment of this former warehouse area into a vibrant pedestrian-oriented urban community. The Mauka and Makai Area Plans establish the general redevelopment goals and objectives for each respective area, while the Mauka and Makai Area Rules specify regulations.

The HCDA is proposing to amend the Kakaako Reserved Housing Rules to allow for payment of shared equity without sale or transfer of reserved housing, and is starting consultation with stakeholders and the community.

A public hearing on the amendment was held on April 7, 2021. More information is posted below.
