(BIVN – June 27, 2018) – Dignitaries recently participated in an o‘o ceremony at the site of the future Niumalu Marketplace, breaking ground on a planned $95 million investment in West Hawaii.
Project officials shared the details in this media release on Wednesday:
Niumalu Marketplace, a new 180,000 square foot shopping center, recently broke ground in the heart of Kailua-Kona. Niumalu Marketplace is estimated to be a $95 million investment in West Hawaii.
“This project’s history has been more than 10 years in the making. I’m excited that Wendell Brooks was able to connect us to this project along with an experienced local group of consultants to make this project happen. Wendell brought the team together,” said Blue Vista Principal Jason Schwartz.
Located adjacent to Lanihau Center, the new Niumalu Marketplace will feature retail stores, restaurants and entertainment in a collection of 14-buildings on 20-acres with parking for over 750 cars—not to mention sweeping coastal views. Opening in early 2020, Niumalu Marketplace will be anchored by a new Safeway store with expanded store offerings. Safeway will be housed in a 63,000 square foot building and will feature a convenient 18-pump gas station.
