    Ward Warehouse in Kakaako.

Most of the Ward Warehouse retail center in Kakaako could be demolished in the second half of 2015 to make way for two condominium towers as part of a second phase of residential development at Ward Centers.

Landowner and developer Howard Hughes Corp. has submitted a permit application to the Hawaii Community Development Authority seeking approval to replace much of Ward Warehouse with two high-rises.

The project also would include low-rise townhomes fronting Ala Moana Boulevard, retail space along Auahi Street and public open space that includes a waterway between the two towers, the application said.

HCDA, a state agency governing development in Kakaako, has scheduled three public hearings on the project on Oct. 1, Oct. 2 and Dec. 3. in HCDA’s office conference room at 461 Cooke St.
