    A groundbreaking ceremony was held today for the Kaiaulu Maui workforce housing development, located within the Kāʻanapali Resort area of West Maui.

    The project features five different three- and four-bedroom Maui workforce housing floor plan options, ranging in size from 1,118 to 1,641 square feet of living area.  Each unit also offers standard features that include 9-foot ceilings, double pitched plantation style roofs, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and double-pane low E windows.

    A lottery for the project took place on October 7, 2016, with units reportedly sold out at the event.

    ʻĀina Lani Pacific developed the project as its first development to deliver on a mission of providing affordable workforce housing on Maui, and building those homes at market quality standards.

    Carol Reimann, County of Maui Director of Housing & Human Concerns was among those at the groundbreaking event.  She said, “Thanks to Kaiaulu, Maui County is please to see Workforce Housing become a reality in West Maui.  We are very happy for the 33 lucky local families who will have an opportunity own their very own homes in beautiful Kāʻanapali.”

    Howard Kihune Jr. with ʻĀina Lani Pacific LLC said 32 of the 33 homeowners at the site are from West Maui and include a firefighter, lifeguard, nurse and hotel industry workers who will be first time homeowners.

    The project offered 33 homes at prices ranging from $395,150 to $650,500 for families in three income brackets, making between 80% and 120% of the area median income.

    Sales were subject to certain workforce housing income and eligibility requirements as outlined in Section 2.96.090 of the County of Maui Code of Ordinances.
