Helber Hastert & Fee, Planners (HHF) created the master plan for a 548-acre residential and golf community together with the former Ko Olina Phase II project area now in the State Land Use Urban District to be part of “Kapolei West.” The proposed project includes approximately 1,200 low and medium-density residential units, approximately 60 acres of golf course, and nearly 28 acres of park and open space. Beneficial impacts of the project include provision of almost 1,200 homes; increased housing choices; creation of over 300 construction period and 260 operational period jobs annually; and net fiscal benefits for the County and State.
The State of Hawaii Land Use Commission accepted the Kapolei West Expansion Area Final Environmental Impact Statement on June 16, 2005. HHF prepared the FEIS in support of a petition for a State Land Use District Boundary Amendment to reclassify approximately 174.2 acres of land from the Agricultural District to the Urban District. The Petition Area is located in Ewa, Oahu and straddles the State-owned, historic Oahu Railway & Land Company (OR&L) Railroad right-of-way (ROW). The Petition Area is surrounded by the 372.6-acre area formerly known as Ko Olina Phase II to the north, Ko Olina Resort to the west, Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor and the Kapolei Business Park to the south, and Kalaeloa Boulevard and the City of Kapolei to the east.
