The draft Ala Moana Neighborhood Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) plan is an intimidating 149 pages long, but a good chunk of that is maps, pictures, renderings and the like, some of which I included above.
I’ve been too distracted with my own research to do a proper review of the plan, but as a Ala Moana resident I’m both delighted with the focus on pedestrian safety and ultra worried about the long-term affordability and sustainability of rental housing in the neighborhood.
As I mentioned in a previous post, infill development in Honolulu often times are charm-less concrete walk-ups but these cinderblock boxes are a crucial part of the housing market. Unlike the examples of townhouses and “low rise” buildings included in the draft plan, the humble Honolulu walk-up is cheap to build, affordable to rent, and surprisingly sustainable. My little cinderblock apartment catches the tradewinds through louvered windows (no need for AC) and the balcony catches the afternoon sun (no need for a dryer, just a laundry line). The semester we lived on the 31st floor of Kaka’ako condo with a baller view of the ocean, I learned the hard way that southwest facing windows (very few of which could actually open) meant the living room was uninhabitable in the afternoon. Hot yoga anyone?
I assumed that the new high-rises that are going up have incorporated passive cooling into their design, but the nearly done building on Waimanu Street seems to only have those awful windows that hinge open just a few inches from the bottom.
Tom Dinell, professor emeritus and one of the founding faculty of the University of Hawai’i at Manoa’s planning department, recently wrote about the potential of ohana housing to expand affordable housing options instead of focusing on large-scale development as the only answer.
If you want to know how uninviting the existing procedure is, just read the instructions for ‘ohana unit construction or expansion, which can be found on the Department of Planning and Permitting’s web site.
I’d be excited if, as part of the TOD zoning changes, small-scale infill development was encouraged, the sort that young families and retirees alike can afford.

Parks play a major role in providing a high quality of life. Great parks support strong, healthy neighborhoods.
When it comes to park systems, Denver ranks higher (13th among the 40 largest U.S. cities) than Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston and Phoenix, despite greater park coverage in those cities.
Denver’s unique park system offers more than 200 traditional and historic parks within city limits, many of them connected by bike paths that are part of the city’s network of 850 miles of paved, off-street bike trails. Denver also has 14,000 acres of parks in the nearby foothills of the Rocky Mountains – an immense mountain park system that covers an area almost the size of Manhattan.
Other fun facts about Denver’s parks:
Park acreage: 5,902 acres
People served per park acre: 79
Oldest park: Mestizo Curtis Park, est. 1881
Largest park: City Park, 314 acres
Most-visited park: City Park
