The developers for a proposed town center in South Maui are attempting to incorporate sustainable design in the mixed use project.  The project called “Downtown Kihei” is a 320,000 square foot mixed use sustainable community that combines residential, entertainment, restaurant and retail space.

The California-based architectural design company, Stoutenborough Inc., entered an agreement with developer Krausz Companies of San Francisco to design the project.

“We are very pleased to be working again with the Krausz Companies on the creation of a project so central to the quality of life for the people of Maui. Krausz is always at the forefront of original thinking in design and mixed-use development,” said Todd Stoutenborough, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, president of Stoutenborough, Inc.

“This project demonstrates our company’s commitment to what we call ‘triple bottom line architecture’ – helping people, creating profit for our clients and preserving the planet. We’re looking forward to the next step,” Stoutenborough said.

The project is still in the entitlement phase and in the process of obtaining government permits, with the projected slated for opening as early as 2012.  The project is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council for sustainable design that includes concept planning providing access to public transportation and bike paths.
