Construction has begun on Phase I of the project, which will consist of a 750,000 square-foot regional center anchored by the first Macy’s department store in West Oah‘u and featuring more than 150 shops and restaurants, an 8-screen cinema, and a 175-key Hampton Inn and Suites hotel.
“West Oah‘u is the fastest-growing sub-market on the island of Oah‘u and DeBartolo’s exciting Ka Makana Ali‘i mall will quickly become the retail heart of this vibrant area. We are delighted to have been able to help their team structure and complete this complex capital transaction and to have contributed to delivering on their vision for the project,” said Douglas Hercher, principal and managing director of RobertDouglas. Alex Hernandez, managing director of Cushman & Wakefield added, “It is rare for investors and developers to be able to participate in developments with the region-defining potential of the Ka Makana Ali‘i site. OPSEU Pension Trust and ULLICO recognized the incredible potential of this project and seized the opportunity to partner with DeBartolo.”
