Affordable Housing Project Gets The Go Ahead

Council members voted in favor of 250 affordable housing units to be built within a 670 acre planned community to be located south of Maui Meadows. Moving from the original site in north Kihei should help Honua’ula Partners, the potential builders, to get the project started more quickly than originally anticipated.

Before any of the planned housing building can begin, Honua’ula Partners has a $30 million dollar project to complete first. The widening of Piilani Highway from Kilohana Drive to Wailea Ike Drive. Of the projected 250 affordable housing units, 125 will be ownership units and the remaining 125 will be rental.
