Maui Planning Commission is receiving praise for unanimously approving the SMA (special management area) for the $354.5 million Makena Resort.
The project was scaled down from 158 units to 134 units. These will include multifamily units, cottages, custom lots, and commercial space.
The project cut three multifamily buildings, two cottages, and one vacation rental unit. Lots for custom homes were moved and parking for the beach was increased.
Commissioners were won over by the attention to the community the project gave. The resort has generated 160 jobs during the construction phase, and approximately 145 jobs will result from resort operations.
