Princess Ka’iulani Mixed-Use Redevelopment

Youthful Spirit & Understated Elegance

The Ainahau Estate and the Apuakehua Stream that once graced this property was the home of Princess Ka’iulani, heir to the throne of Hawaii and daughter of Princess Likelike and Archibald Cleghorn. This proposal for a mixed-use redevelopment aims to embody the youthful spirit and style and grace of the young Princess who captured the hearts of the world during her all too brief life.

Food, beverage and entertainment facilities surround a central gathering place featuring a Hula Mound for performing Hawaiian music and dance. A retail walkway follows the long forgotten route of the stream diagonally through the property sewing the various parts together into a greater whole like a Hawaiian quilt. Rising up but setback from the two level commercial podium is a mixed-use hotel and condominium high-rise with ocean views for all units.
