The first regional shopping mall in Hawai‘i in 30 years, Ka Makana Ali‘i (KMA), “the royal gift” in Hawaiian, is located in Kapolei, O‘ahu's fastest growing community and creates a new shopping experience for the community with world class retail, dining, and entertainment.
AHL provided master planning and architectural services for Phase One of the Ka Makana Ali‘i development, and is currently designing Phase Two. Designed to be distinctive amongst other shopping centers and reflective of West O‘ahu, KMA incorporates designs and motifs reflective of Native Hawaiian culture and the West O‘ahu landscape with numerous community-friendly features
As one of Hawai‘i’s largest regional shopping centers, Ka Makana Ali‘i creates a new shopping experience for the community with world class retail, dining, and entertainment. Located near the University of Hawai‘i West O‘ahu campus and the resorts at Ko Olina, this mixed-use project serves as an urban center and active gathering place stimulating an economic boost for the region. For this project, AHL worked with a wide range of design and retail specialists along with the developer, DeBartolo Development, LLC, and the Department of Hawaiian Homelands.
