Ho’opili presents an implementable vision for a 1,600 acre transitoriented 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 while also including a series of 5 public schools.
