Talk Story: Greg Allen Jr.

WAILUA — If he had it his way, Greg Allen Jr. would prefer to stay out of the spotlight.

But one thing he doesn’t mind talking about is the island’s need for more affordable housing options and his efforts to help change that.

“It is the right thing in the right place, and people really need it,” said Allen, who purchased two lots near Kapaa High School about a decade ago and later worked with family, friends and other investors to plan out what was then called Kapaa Highlands, a planned community designed to address future housing needs along the Kapaa corridor.
