LIHUE — The protective wind screens are already installed and infrastructure work on the Grove Farm Puakea I project has already started, said Dave Hinazumi of the Grove Farm Company.
“We’ve already started some of the infrastructure work, and if everything goes according to plan, we should have the infrastructure work completed by the end of this year,” Hinazumi said. “Lot owners have been coming in to do their house plans and layouts so the first houses should start building shortly thereafter.”
Ground was broken for the Puakea I, a 24-lot subdivision on May 3 under the canopy of clear skies and the flapping of wind allowances in the protective windscreens.
“We are proud that all 24 of the lots were sold,” said Marissa Sandblom, a Grove Farm vice president.
The average lot is about 9,000 square feet and sold for prices ranging from $265,000 for an interior lot to $290,000 for a golf course lot, Hinazumi said.
“These are smaller lot sizes than we are normally accustomed to offering,” Hinazumi said. “But we made the lots smaller to accommodate the market, and keep the prices down.”
