KRYSTLE MARCELLUS / KMARCELLUS@STARADVERTISER.COM Opponents of a proposed “workforce housing” condominium tower in Kakaako rallied against the project Monday in advance of a state public hearing scheduled for Wednesday. The planned 410-unit condo represents a second tower of a project called 801 South St. at the makai-Diamond Head corner of Kapiolani Boulevard and South Street. The Hawaii Community Development Authority, a state agency governing development in Kakaako, is scheduled to make a decision Wednesday on the tower during a meeting at which public testimony will be accepted. The meeting is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. at the agency’s office conference room at 461 Cooke St. Eva Gallegos of Kakaako Cares joined the protest.
