Hunt Named 2023 Hawai'i Developer of the Year by NAIOP

June 26, 2023

In May, Hunt was honored with the Ku Ho‘okela Award as Developer of the Year by the Hawai‘i Chapter of NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, at its 26th Annual Kukulu Hale Awards.

The awards program recognizes excellence in Hawai‘i’s commercial real estate industry and also celebrated Corbett Kalama, President and CEO of Resco, Inc., the parent company of the real estate brokerage Locations, for outstanding service; Harry A. Saunders, President of Castle & Cooke Hawai‘i, for lifetime achievement; and PBR Hawai‘i as Design Firm of the Year. Hunt was honored to be in such outstanding company.

“Hunt has worked on projects across the entire state over the past three decades,” explains Steve Colón, President of Hunt Development Group Hawai’i. “But we would have only accomplished that with our team of dedicated, relentless individuals — together. We are also fortunate to have worked and continue to work with many talented affiliates, consultants and project partners; they are all part of our success, and we share the Developer of the Year Award with them.”

Hundreds of the local industry’s leaders — from developers to lenders, asset managers to owners – as well as most of the local Hunt team were in attendance at the Royal Hawaiian Resort to celebrate the honor and the other 2023 awardees.
