Mayor Wright Homes
Honolulu, HI

The Mayor Wright Homes Redevelopment Project will convert the existing Mayor Wright Homes site into a new mixed-income, mixed-use transit oriented development (TOD) that will be an integral part of the Kalihi-Palama neighborhood.

The 20-acre master plan project includes 2,448 residential rental units; with two-thirds targeted for affordable units including at minimum a one-for-one replacement of the existing 364 public housing units on site. Up to 80,000 square feet of commercial space is also proposed and will include a mix of retail, office space, and community services to support the new residential uses and complement the surrounding neighborhood. Open spaces are envisioned throughout including a new community center, parks, community gardens, and recreational decks.

New internal streets will be designed as “complete streets” to support safe pedestrian and bicycle circulation and will also include traffic calming measures to slow vehicle traffic through the site. Convenient pedestrian and bicycle access will also be provided to the surrounding transit facilities.
The proposed project incorporates well designed recreational spaces combined with green building and sustainability concepts that will contribute to improved individual health, wellbeing, quality of life and sense of connectedness to the Hawaiian environment for existing and future residents.

The proposed MWH conceptual master plan includes a mix of community spaces where people can gather, recreate, and celebrate. At the heart of the plan is a community park flanked by the community center and a multipurpose hale where community activities can be held as well as informal gatherings for family and friends. In addition, the initial landscape concept incorporates several community gardens and raised food gardens throughout the site where future residents can grow their own food. Culturally significant plants and lei plants will be considered in the landscape design of the project so the plantings can serve multiple purposes of being useful as well as providing shade, comfort, and aesthetics. The proposed project will be the largest affordable housing development in the state.
