Hawaii landowner cancels condo plans to protect surf spot

KAILUA-KONA — A Hawaii developer has agreed to cancel a planned condominium project to preserve a surfing area.

West Hawaii Today reported Wednesday that the landowner has agreed to work toward building a public space rather than the proposed five-story residence near the Banyans.

The Banyans is a popular surfing spot on the north side of Holualoa Bay.

Property owner Kilohana Makai LLC met in a second mediation session Monday with people involved in a case challenging plans for the condominium.

A spokesman says Kilohana Makai will work over the next year to 15 months to convert the 14,450-square-foot (1,342-square-meter) lot on the Big Island into a community space.

Officials say Hawaii County could buy the property via a commission that maintains a list of properties considered “worthy of preservation.”

    Did you all receive raises and is the office attracting the best and most qualified candidates?
