Queen Emma Land Co., owner of the International Market Place in Waikiki, plans to remake it into an open-air retail center. The famous banyan tree at the heart of the center on Kalakaua Avenue and several other large canopy trees will be preserved in the renovation. Visitors shopped at the bazaar on Friday.
CRAIG T. KOJIMA / CKOJIMA@STARADVERTISER.COM The renovation plan is the latest of several attempts made in the past few years to revitalize the aging landmark. The marketplace was built in 1957 on land leased from what was then Queen's Hospital.
