City Council committee gives preliminary OK on Waikiki hotel


Developers of a planned Waikiki hotel-condominium won a preliminary approval Thursday from a key City Council committee that would allow the high-rise to have a height of 350 feet, 50 feet more than is currently allowed.

The Council Planning and Zoning Committee voted 5-0 to allow Los Angeles-based PACREP LLC the extra height for what is being planned as the 37-story 2121 Kuhio Avenue hotel. Two members, Ron Menor and Ann Kobayashi voted “yes” with reservations.

Resolution 13-2 now goes to the full Council for a final vote that will likely take place next month.
