Kalakaua Avenue named a Great Street by planners group

By Erika Engle

Waikiki's famed Kalakaua Avenue has been named among the 2013 Great Streets by the American Planning Association as part of its "Great Places in America" program.

In addition to naming 10 Great Streets, the APA also selected 10 Great Neighborhoods and 10 Great Public Spaces, to mark National Community Planning Month.

The annual list, issued since 2007, recognizes unique and exemplary components of all communities, the organization. The selected neighborhoods, public spaces and streets have been shaped by forward-thinking planning, they showcase diverse architectural styles, promote community involvement and accessibility, and foster economic opportunity, the group said, in a statement.

Sadly, the name Kalakaua was misspelled as Kalakoua on the organization's website as of 7 a.m. today, but the spelling was corrected within an hour.
