Ground-breaking Transit-Oriented Community


Ho’opili presents an implementable vision for a 1,600 acre transit-oriented community in the quickly urbanizing Ewa district of western Oahu. The plan focuses future growth around a series of transit stations while providing a wide variety of community amenities such as a mix of uses, natural open spaces, parks, bike paths and schools.


This type of transit-oriented development is the first of its kind in the state of Hawaii. The Master Plan introduces a series of new urbanist design concepts such as walkability, a mixture of uses, housing diversity and regional connectivity while seeking to maintain and enhance traditional Hawaiian values.


At final buildout, Ho’opili will provide approximately 12,500 dwelling units in a variety of orientations including mixed use housing over retail, stacked flats, townhouses, rowhouses, live/work and small-lot single family. Ho’opili will also provide between 3-5 million square feet of retail, office and industrial uses and a series of 5 public schools.

Design Features

  • A focus around two new high-capacity transit stations which act as “downtown” neighborhood centers for higher intensity development
  • Civic Plaza at the center of the site which is surrounded by higher density housing development and mixed-use buildings
  • Connection to the surrounding Ewa District by a network of streets and bicycle paths which allow a variety of circulation options for residents and visitors
  • A series of neighborhoods with a mix of uses including residential, retail, office and light industrial
