Koa Ridge Property Types
Since the original Koa Ridge plan year 2002, the developer has now increased the number of multi-family homes and the single-family homes will be build on smaller lots to regain affordability in an expensive market with high construction costs. The project will also add a commercial component with mixed-use units, where people can live upstairs and use 1st floor for commercial use.
Background on Koa Ridge
Project was originally proposed more than 15 years ago and approved by the State Land Use year 2002. However, legal challenges from opponents (arguing against using the agricultural land for housing) kept the project in limbo until April 2016 when the Hawaii Supreme Court gave the green light for Castle & Cooke Hawaii to develop Koa Ridge. The project is expected to cost developer around $2,000,000,000 ($2BL).
Koa Ridge Prices
To be determined.
About 30% of the homes will be affordable housing.
