Bikeshare Hawaii Biki stop coming to Kolowalu Park

Project Area

This article originally appeared in the July 2017 edition of the Hokua Resident Newsletter, Ahailono. Written content is attributed to Hokua staff.

Within the next two weeks, Bike Share Hawaii with the approval of the HCDA will install a 23 dock bike rack at the makai corner of Kolowalu Park, at the corner of Queen’s Lane and the Hokua garage entrance (as depicted on the right). The proposal was approved by the HCDA Board at its June 7, 2017 regular meeting and grants Bike Share Hawaii a right of entry to use this location for the installation, operation and maintenance of a bike share pro- gram for a term of 5-years. Landscaping will be modified and surface improvements made before the rack is installed. Manage- ment has been advised that the rack will initially be stocked with 14 bikes but inventory will rotate and fluctuate based on actual usage. All residents should be aware of the additional bicycle traffic in this area and be alert when entering and exiting the garage entrance driveway.

Bike Share Hawaii is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that manages a bike sharing system in the State of Hawaii. The initiative is supported by the Department of Transportation, Department of Health, City and County of Honolulu, and numerous public and private organizations. Currently bike racks have been installed throughout the downtown, Kaka’ako, and Waikiki areas (as noted on the map to the right) with the intent that residents and visitors will use the bikes as an alternative mode of transportation. Bicycles are rented for short periods and may be returned to any rack. A credit card or Biki Pass is necessary to rent bicycles.

Howard Hughes presents plans on $20M upgrade of Kewalo Basin Harbor

The below article is by Duane Shimogawa for Pacific Business News, published on May 5, 2016:

The Howard Hughes Corp. presented plans to state regulators in Hawaii this week regarding its $20 million upgrade of Kewalo Basin Harbor, the aging small boat harbor directly across the street from the developer's 60-acre Ward Village master-planned community in Honolulu.

The two-phase renovation of the aging Kakaako small boat harbor includes water, fire and electrical upgrades, adding security cameras and Wi-Fi. The improvements also include repairing the concrete and epoxy coat, as well as adding security gates. The pile caps will be demolished and replaced with new docks, and a marine fueling facility will be installed.

Honolulu-based Sea Engineering Inc., along with other consultants, including Coffman Engineers Inc., are doing the work on the long-overdue project.

Last year, the Texas-based developer took over management duties of the harbor under a lease with the Hawaii Community Development Authority.

Todd Apo, vice president of community development for The Howard Hughes Corp. (NYSE: HHC), told PBN Thursday that the developer was required to do the improvements under its lease.

“The lease was set up that we were able to recover the development costs from the revenue from the harbor,” he said, noting that it comes out to a 16 to 18 year recovery of those costs. “Under the lease, right now, we are at base rent and then it goes up to percentage rent.”

Howard Hughes’ Kewalo Harbor Development Co. LLC is requesting a development permit from the HCDA, the state agency regulating development in the Honolulu neighborhood, to do the upgrades.

A decision-making hearing is scheduled for June 1 at 1 p.m. at the at the HCDA’s office on Queen Street in Honolulu.
