Moss Continues with Construction of $135-Million Affordable Maui Rental Project, Hale O Pi‘ikea

June 20, 2024

Moss Construction continues to make progress on a 223-unit affordable rental project: Hale O Pi‘ikea in downtown Kīhei in southwest Maui. The first residents are expected to move in by early 2025.

The $135-million project will provide much needed affordable housing for Maui individuals, seniors and families whose incomes are at or below 60% of the area median income (AMI).

Guests at the November groundbreaking – hosted by Moss Construction and owner/developer ‘Ikenākea Development – included Governor Josh Green and Maui Mayor Richard Bissen. Native Hawaiian spiritual leader Lei‘ohu Ryder conducted the traditional blessing.

“We are honored to help bring this much needed affordable housing to the people of Maui, where the housing challenges were exacerbated by the devastating fires in August,” explains Matt Jun, Vice President of Moss in Hawai‘i. “Moss is committed to creating quality and sustainable communities that positively impact people’s lives, and Hale O Pi‘ikea embodies that commitment.” Hale O Pi‘ikea will be built in three phases. The first phase will comprise two four-story buildings with 90 one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Five units in the first phase will be specifically designated for those with mobility issues, while two will be for those who are hearing- or vision-impaired.

Moss expects to complete the third phase in late 2025.

Hale O Pi‘ikea amenities will include laundry facilities, community gardens, an outdoor gathering space, an exercise room, computer lab and community resource center, as well as on-site vehicle and bicycle parking for both residents and their guests.
