HALE MAKANA O MAILI
Hawaiian Community Development Board, in partnership with Pacific Development Group and 3 Leaf Holdings, developed the Hale Makana O Maili (HMoM) project, a 52-unit multi-family affordable rental housing development on a 1.95 acre portion of a 2.78 acre parcel in the ili of Maili, in the ahupua‘a of Lualualei, in the district of Waiʻanae on the island of Oʻahu. Completed December 2020, the development consist of 6 buildings, a central park, parking and a resource center. The property was acquired using grant funds from the City & County of Honolulu. Development funding of $22.7 million project is from the City & County of Honolulu, the State's Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corp., Hunt Capital Partners and Bank of Hawaii. Architects Hawaii Ltd. designed the Project with construction by Moss and Associates, LLC.
The primary purpose of the project is to provide much-needed, long-term affordable housing to the Waianae Coast communities. It serves individuals and families with a 30%, 50% or 60% Area Median Income (AMI) with quality affordable housing options where they can feel secure and proud of their home. Based on the high demand for affordable housing among current residents of the Waianae Coast and HCDB’s prior experience in the area, as expected, residents at HMoM are predominantly individuals and families with existing roots in the community.
Hale Makana Resource Center
The project includes a 2,463 sq. ft. Resource Center, which provides residents with a variety of useful spaces, including a library and computer center, two multi-purpose rooms and laundry facilities. Additionally, the center includes a reception and lounge, a manager’s office, storage spaces, a covered waiting area and picnic area. To increase the use of renewable energy resources and reduce the overall cost of electricity to the project, the development was designed to meet the U.S. Green Building Council LEED Homes Silver certifiable standard and includes a solar photovoltaic and thermal heating system.
