The Hawaii Community Development Authority decided today to take a final vote August 7 on whether to allow a new condominium project to rise significantly above the height limit for the site and stand closer to the adjacent Imperial Plaza building than rules permit.

Today the HCDA voted 6-0 to adopt a staff finding that concluded the height and spacing of the proposed tower at 803 Waimanu  would have “significant adverse effects” on the neighborhood.

The HCDA staff recommended the development permit be denied because of the significant departures from the rules pertaining to proximity to Imperial Plaza and the tower’s height.

The HCDA won’t make its decision on the permit until the August 7 meeting.
