KA MAKANA ALI'I - THE CENTER FOR WEST O'AHU

Opening late 2016, Ka Makana Ali‘i – The Center for West O‘ahu – will offer residents and visitors a family-friendly, mixed-use center in the heart of Hawai‘i’s fastest growing community.

 

The 1.4 million-square-foot regional mall is DeBartolo Development’s first such project in Hawai‘i and will feature more than 150 exciting shopping, dining and entertainment offerings, two hotels and LEED-certified office space.

 

Envisioned as the premier gathering place for the community, Ka Makana Ali`i will meet the shopping and dining demands of West O‘ahu, where more than 80,000 new homes are projected to be constructed by 2025. Its convenient location offers excellent highway access, ample parking and public transportation for shoppers.

 

In addition, through an innovative partnership between DeBartolo Development and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, Ka Makana Ali`i will financially support programs benefiting Native Hawaiian interests statewide for decades to come.

PROJECT TEAM

DEBARTOLO DEVELOPMENT

Built on a legacy of more than seven decades, the DeBartolo name is recognized as an icon in the real estate industry. Since its beginnings in 1944 when legendary entrepreneur Edward J. DeBartolo, Sr. pioneered the first shopping mall concept and developed some of the most well-known and nationally-recognized shopping landmarks, DeBartolo’s legacy has been synonymous with success. Continuing the family tradition with the same entrepreneurial spirit, Edward J. DeBartolo, Jr. has evolved DeBartolo Development into one of the largest private real estate investment and development companies in the country. Today, DeBartolo Development invests in real estate assets of all sizes and scopes, specializing in opportunistic acquisitions and market-driven, ground-up development of multifamily, hospitality, retail and mixed-use projects throughout the United States. DeBartolo Development combines experience, sound research and market foresight with institutional partnerships and strong lender and broker relationships to meet the unique challenges of today’s real estate environment.

 

 

DEPARTMENT OF HAWAIIAN HOME LANDS

Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniaha’ole had an extraordinary vision for a program through which native Hawaiians, displaced from places where their kupuna had worked and lived for generations, could return to the land. His vision turned into a legacy that continues to benefit thousands today, and will continue to benefit thousands more in the future – the Hawaiian Home Lands Trust.

 

As stewards of this Trust, it is our kuleana to understand the needs and challenges of our beneficiaries. With this understanding, the Trust is better able to offer opportunities as diverse as our homesteaders. The land that comprises the Hawaiian Home Lands Trust is just as versatile, hosting not only homes, but farms, ranches, schools, and commercial developments – all to provide opportunities to as many of our beneficiaries as possible. Ka Makana Ali`i is a public-private partnership between the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands and DeBartolo Development. DeBartolo is leasing land from DHHL, and revenues from the master lease are expected to finance the construction of thousands of homes for Hawaiian homesteaders as well as other programs for Native Hawaiians.

COMMUNITY

Moving the West Coast office from Arizona to Honolulu was a critical step for DeBartolo Development and reflects the company’s commitment to Ka Makana Ali‘i and Hawai‘i.

 

On March 3, 2015, Kahu Kordell Kekoa performed a traditional Hawaiian blessing at the new office in downtown Honolulu to bring positive energy to the team and the project by honoring the past, present, and future.

 

DeBartolo Development has a long legacy of giving back to the community through supporting education initiatives, volunteer work, and sponsoring local events.

 

Because education is something near and dear to the hearts of the DeBartolo family, the company made a $10,000 donation to R.E.A.C.H. Out Hawai’i, a state program that helps provide public middle school students with opportunities to participate in after-school programs. This donation will benefit the students of Kapolei Middle School, which is right next door to Ka Makana Ali‘i.

 

DeBartolo is also proud to sponsor community events such as the Pono Kapolei Fun Run, which promotes a healthy, drug-free Kapolei, as well as the Kroc Center Hawai’i’s Hero Run.
