In this episode of E Hana Kakou, Grassroot President Keli’i Akina and Jay Fidell, President of ThinkTech Hawaii discuss development in Oahu, beginning with Kakaako. How development should proceed in Kakaako has become a significant political issue, with far-reaching implications for Hawaii’s economy and housing crisis. With so many competing interests in play, the situation calls for leadership and compromise among the different stakeholders involved. In a related discussion, Jay and Keli’i also consider redevelopment in light of other public buildings (such as the stadium or convention center) and how proper planning could improve both usefulness and aesthetics.
