Maui Planning Commission has approved ATC Makena Holdings the demolishing of the old Makena Beach & Golf resort. They no longer have to build a separate 76 unit boutique hotel on the 24 acre site. The project density has been brought down from 152 units to 65 units. The vote was 5 to 1 in favor of the new amendments.
The initial boutique hotel will now be replaced with multifamily buildings. There were concerns with converting the old hotel into a boutique hotel that included the age of the structure. Long time residents of Makena are in favor of the new changes to the project.
