  • State Agency Green-Lights Student Housing for Aloha Tower

    The Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) has gained approval from the Aloha Tower Development Corporation (ATDC) to repurpose the Aloha Tower Marketplace in downtown Honolulu into a 300-unit student dormitory and multi-use complex. According to the Pacific Business News, the $30 million project for the 160,000-square-foot, two-story waterfront marketplace would bring student housing on the upper floor, along with retail, dining and entertainment options on the first floor. “We’re delighted with the actions taken today by ATDC and excited about our ability to move forward with a project that we believe has tremendous implications for the university, for our downtown merchants and community and for all of Honolulu,” said HPU President Geoffrey Bannister on the occasion of the announcement.
