A&B Properties, Inc. proposes to develop Waiale on approximately 545 acres of land south of Wailuku and Kahului, in Central Maui. The property is adjacent to Maui Lani and Waikapu. Kuihelani Highway forms the eastern boundary of the property. Waiale is envisioned to be a community for residents to live, work, learn, play, and shop. Residential communities, including single-family homes and multi-family dwellings, will be connected to Village Mixed-Use areas supported with commercial, retail, office, civic and other public facilities through a system of pedestrian/bicycle paths and greenways. Approximately 2,550 residential units are proposed for Waiale, including approximately 300 residential units within approximately 40 acres to be contributed to the County of Maui. Waiale would assist in providing relief to the current overall shortage of housing on Maui, and the site’s central location suggests that its impact will be very beneficial to Maui’s residential and commercial sectors. Waiale will also provide employment opportunities during and after its development, positively impacting Maui’s economy. Several acres of land in Waiale will be provided for public use, including a middle school, a regional park, a regional community center, and other public support facilities.
