Kaka’ako Makai Development Process

As a responsible Hawaiian landowner, OHA believes in a thoughtful and thorough development process. Embedded within our planning are numerous opportunities for community input by OHA’s beneficiaries and other stakeholders.

EPA Brownfield Grant

In July 2013, following a competitive application process, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded OHA with an EPA Brownfield Assessment Grant. The EPA Brownfield Assessment Grant provided OHA with funding to inventory, characterize, assess, and conduct planning and community involvement related to brownfields sites.

The purpose of this grant is to perform Phase II environmental assessments for several of OHA’s Kaka‘ako Makai properties. All of Kaka‘ako Makai is known as a Brownfield, so the reports generated from the Phase II assessments will assist with determining the best options for cleanup alternatives and will be a tool to be considered with OHA’s ongoing conceptual master planning process.


As of September 30, 2016, Phase II environmental assessment field work has been completed and the contractor is currently compiling the data and generating the reports. The draft reports are projected to be completed at the end of calendar 2016, with final drafts to follow in spring 2017.
