Major growth is happening in Leeward Oahu, including in Kapolei, West Oahu and Kalaeloa. The master-planned City of Kapolei, which broke ground in 1990, has grown into a center for business, commerce and government. Where are we today compared with the vision that Campbell Estate had decades ago? What is going on now, and what is the progress of industrial and mixed-use developments in West Oahu and Kalaeloa? What special zoning is applicable? What is being planned for the immediate future, and what is predicted for 5 or 10 years from now?
Steve Kelly, Vice President, Development for the James Campbell Company’s Kapolei Properties Division, is responsible for development and investment activities for a 2,600-acre real estate portfolio in Kapolei, including the City of Kapolei, Oahu’s new master planned city at the center of the fastest growing and most dynamic region in Hawaii.
Christine Camp, President, CEO and founder of Avalon Group, is currently working on several residential and commercial projects in Hawaii, including developing Kapolei Business Park, a 178-acre industrial park in Kapolei. She has over 25 years of industry experience and leadership and is bullish on developing West Oahu.
