KĀʻEO AT MĀKENA
Low Density. Less Impact. Place-based Design.
Aloha and welcome.
Kāʻeo is a 47.15 acre mixed-use development of the Mākena Golf & Beach Club. This low-impact and low density project is the result of an eight-year community inclusive design process. Construction on the northern portion of this residential community is scheduled to commence on May 9th, 2022.
COMMUNITY INCLUSIVE PROCESS
Kāʻeo is the result of eight years and counting continued dialogue with place-based subject-matter experts and stewards, and various concerned members of the Maui community. Through the Maui County public process we aimed to create a plan that recognizes the importance of the place and its people.
Kāʻeo is the first completely Low Impact Development (LID) in Maui, and one of the most comprehensive in the State of Hawaii. LID drainage and filtration systems will protect the nearshore environment and improve the marine water quality during construction and beyond.
Through robust community engagement, the design of the project has changed significantly since its initial submittal to Maui Planning Commission back in 2017. The original plan was 158 unit mixed-use community has been reduced 103 units and includes a public commercial village that welcomes and is open to all of Mauiʻs community.
For a successful future, it is important we learn from the past. Kāʻeo has undergone extensive archeological review led by South Maui–based archaeologist Tanya-Lee Greig of ‘Āina Archaeology. One of the core tenants of the project has always aimed to respect the area’s unique cultural heritage and preserve significant archaeological sites.
