OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Street Grindz to revitalize Fisherman’s Wharf

Street Grindz and OHA officially sign lease agreement for popular landmark

HONOLULU, HI (March 30, 2015) – The Office of Hawaiian Affairs announced today it is leasing the lot that formerly housed Fisherman’s Wharf to Street Grindz, LLC. The agreement provides Street Grindz with interim access rights for daily activities at the site, while OHA prepares a master plan for the use of the 30 acres of land it owns in Kaka‘ako Makai.

For the last few months, Street Grindz has been diligently working with MoJo – The Business of Food, and actively collaborating with OHA planning and conceptualizing future plans for Kaka’ako Makai. “We are fortunate that OHA is on board with our concept for the space, giving us the opportunity to go back to our roots of supporting local, small businesses while focusing on our passion for sustainability in Hawai‘i” said Poni Askew, Owner and CEO of Street Grindz.

“Street Grindz has created exciting and interesting dining concepts,” said Kamana‘opono Crabbe, Ka Pouhana (CEO) of OHA. “This interim use will help make our Kaka‘ako Makai lands a gathering place while we continue to work on a master plan for future development.”

Plans for construction will begin as soon as April, with an expected completion date this summer. Askew said, “A lot of the inspiration for our concept draws from our experiences with markets and dining around the world and in the US. You’ll just have to watch it all unfold in the next couple of months.”
