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.
