Demolition of the former Maui Prince Hotel structure at the Mākena Golf & Beach Club continues.

The removal of the seven-story former hotel began in June [1] and completion is estimated in December.

The 310-room hotel closed in July of 2016 [2] to make way for the new residences.

Principal construction of the residences on the 24-acre site began in May of 2017.

According to ATC Mākena Holdings, LLC and Discovery Land Company, an amendment provides an overall reduction of the height and density of the project from 76 residences and a 76-room hotel to 65 residences.

The reduced scale project includes plans for improved drainage management, reduction of waste and meeting energy efficiency goals.
