COURTESY HAWAII COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY Kakaako development will hit new heights under rail-oriented draft rules proposed by the state.
STAR-ADVERTISER A conceptual sketch shows what a redeveloped Neal S. Blaisdell Center could look like under a state plan that would allow residential towers as high as 700 feet, or close to twice the existing 400-foot height limit in Kakaako. Under the scenario, a private developer potentially could be attracted to build new Blaisdell public facilities in return for rights to build a tower and other commercial space.
