What I am hoping never to see is an 'indoor" mall like Ala Moana:
The reports talk about 3 floors of retail and the rendering is:
So, maybe slightly better than what you posted, but very similar and indoors (and not what we all love).
It looks like the group that asked the city to withdraw the permit owns the only properties on that block that wouldn't be demo'd:
The Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber (to the left of International Market Place) and the Ohana East hotel (other end of the block).
As well as the Outrigger Waikiki On the Beach directly across the street from the entrance to the market place.
I'd say they might think that all that construction might be bad for their business.
There was supposed to be a hearing on April 15th, anybody know what happened?
I just do not understand why anyone would across the Pacific just to go into an indoor mall.
The Banyan tree is "saved" but hidden and so minimized that it seems likely that it will be pruned to half of its current magnificence.
