PBR HAWAII prepared and successfully processed an environmental impact statement and a change in zoning for “Live, Work, Play ‘Aiea,” the proposed redevelopment of the former Kamehameha Drive In property in ‘Aiea.
Live, Work, Play ‘Aiea, will integrate homes, stores, restaurants, offices, and public plazas into a compact, walkable urban village that will likely be Honolulu’s first transit oriented development (TOD). It implements numerous long-range community plans for the area calling for higher density commercial and residential mixed-use “livable neighborhoods.”
The compact, mixed-use, urban village will be a vibrant community where residents can live, work, and play without having to drive for many of their daily needs. The community will provide and encourage easy connections to neighboring uses and is enhanced by proximity to nearby employment centers and convenient access to multiple forms of transportation including major roads, bus lines, and the planned Pearl Ridge Rail Transit Station, less than a quarter mile away.
The rezoning from the B-2 Community Business district to the BMX-3 Community Business Mixed-Use district provides for the residential uses and density needed to create the critical mass for a successful TOD community. The site is less than a quarter mile from the planned Pearlridge Transit Station and the project incorporates design elements to encourage walking and bicycling to/from the station.
As part of this project PBR HAWAII also assisted in the preparation and processing of Oahu’s first ever Development Agreement between a landowner and the City and County of Honolulu. .
In 2014, the American Planning Association Hawai‘i Chapter recognized Live, Work, Play ‘Aiea with its Outstanding Planning Award.
