KZ Companies is proud to announce the groundbreaking of a community-driven shopping center, Ho’omaka Marketplace in Kapolei, Hawaii

We were honored to have the participation of Governor David Ige, who spoke at the ceremony and helped turn the first soil on this landmark occasion. The project will consist of Longs Drugs, Chick-fil-A, Hele Gas, and 7-Eleven. There will be a dedicated space for Kapolei Community Development Corporation (KCDC), a nonprofit that serves Hawaiian homestead areas.

KCDC will utilize the proceeds to support facilities, scholarships, education, childcare, emergency services, and job creation for Native Hawaiian families. It has been a pleasure to work with KCDC and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL).

KZ Companies project featured in Pacific Business News

KAPAA, HAWAII – As featured in an article by the Pacific Business News, KZ Companies will be developing a brand new Long’s Drugs in Kapaa on the island of Kauai. The Kapaa project is currently a coconut grove that was established over a 100 years ago and because of old age has been dying in recent years. We are working closely with community stakeholders to design the site around the coconut grove. We have made great efforts to rehabilitate the grove, improve drainage, and blend the building architecture into the surrounding master plan. Our goal is to improve Longs Drugs services to the community while keeping our development consistent with the rich history of the site and surrounding area. This Longs Drugs will be the first drive-thru pharmacy on the island of Kauai, and will expand all services currently being offered by Longs Drugs in the marketplace.
