By Star-Advertiser Staff


The company proposing to build five towers on the site of the former Kamehameha Drive-In has filed its final Environmental Impact Statement.

Los Angeles-based Robertson Properties Group plans to build up to 1,500 homes in five buildings ranging in height from 150- to 350-feet tall, with 143,000 square feet of commercial space and 80,000 square feet of office space.

The project, known as Live, Work, Play ‘Aiea, will take 13 years to complete and is expected to create approximately 980 jobs and generate $2.4 billion in total economic impact, including a direct capital investment of more than $767 million, the company said in a news release.

The EIS was submitted to the city Department of Planning and Permitting and the State Office of Environmental Quality Control. The Department of Planning will decide whether to accept the EIS after review. There is no period for public comment, the company said.
