Kewalo Harbor: A Revitalized Gathering Space

The expansive waterfront that forms the Kewalo Harbor is set to take on new life in the coming years.

Earlier this month, the Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA) granted Ward Village the rights to refurbish and reinvigorate two parcels of land that skirt the harbor, creating an environment that maintains the integrity and rich history of the area, while simultaneously uplifting the space.

While the harbor has served local fishermen and businesses for generations, it's in dire need of upgrades and repairs. With a plan in place, the proposed facelift for the harbor will create an environment that both lends itself to public use while continuing to maintain the harbor's relaxed, low-key atmosphere.

"This partnership will allow us to bring much-needed repairs and upgrades to the Kewalo facilities while also creating a stronger connection between Kewalo Harbor, Ala Moana Beach Park, and the nearby areas," said Todd Apo, Vice President of Community Development for Ward Village.

For Kewalo Harbormaster John Eveleth, the improvements imagined for the harbor will help usher the area into a brighter future. "Ward Village's plans for Kewalo will bring to life the two areas around the harbor that for decades have been inactive and unattractive to the boaters and visitors to this area."

According to Ron Iwami of the Friends of Kewalo association, the new developments won't take away from the harbor's rich history.

It will keep the charm of Kewalo basin's low-key atmosphere where you can come and relax and not be part of a shopping center.

As a means to showcase their commitment to the community the team from Ward spent countless hours gathering feedback, holding community workshops and even a dedicated website, kewalois.com, that serves as an information and update hub for interested parties.

"As we move forward, the public can expect to see a cleaner, greener revitalized waterfront at Kewalo," said Race Randle, VP of Development at Howard Hughes. "We're very excited about the future of the harbor. Our plans are really going to connect the community and enhance the neighborhood."
