The Kuhio Park Terrace Low-Rises and Kuhio Homes are adjacent properties that contain a total of 174 units of federally subsidized low-income public housing on a 22-acre densely populated diverse neighborhood within Kalihi, a community on the island of O’ahu. Currently, these residences are 1960’s concrete barracks style public housing in need of serious repair and isolated from the surrounding community.  The quality of housing and the safety of the tenants due to over-crowdedness is of concern and is currently being studied and redeveloped in a phased master plan on the piece of property north of Linapuni Street.

The overall vision is sustainable, livable, urban, familial community – one that is pedestrian friendly, safe, and filled with opportunities for its residents.
Our firm’s project scope of work involves conducting follow up community outreach charrettes with tenants and other stakeholders, remasterplanning the project based on new site and stock conditions, architectural concept design, and civil engineering coordination.

The masterplan calls for 625 new, low-income units over 3 phases with 174 units of federally subsidized low-income public housing. The units will be divided up into multiple building types with varying density and layouts to maximize green and community space including walk-up 4-8 story building “villages” with 1BR to 3BR unit mix. This project is a residential development within a larger campus that has two existing towers. The proposed new plan includes a community center, shared garden plots, and tree lined exercise loop connecting the low-rise campus.
