The Garden Island newspaper reported this morning that a new supermarket is officially coming to Kilauea, after the Sullivan Family of Companies, operators of Foodland and other food markets, signed a lease for 10,000 square feet at the planned new development, Kilauea Lighthouse Village. The name of the market will be The Market at Kilauea, and at 10,000 square feet, it will be approximately half the size of the Foodland in Princeville, and it is reported that their intention is to make The Market at Kilauea the largest seller of local growers in the state. Sullivan also reports that, as of now, there are no immediate plans for a new Foodland store in Princeville.
According to their website, linked to HERE, Kilauea Lighthouse Village is planned to be a 50,000 square-foot mixed-use / town center development with open-air charm and sustainable architecture, offering many different types of spaces for lease, including retail, office, restaurant and residential unites. It will consist of 11 separate buildings with 34 unit spaces, and a 574 square-foot space will be reserved as a gathering space at the request of the community. For more information about the project and leasing opportunities, the leasing brochure provided on their website is also linked to HERE.
Hunt Companies has stated that they are hopeful to break ground on construction of the Kilauea Lighthouse Village in the summer of 2015, with completion of the project targeted for 2016. Before they can get started, however, they have to finalize all of their permits, and there is still some work to do in that regard. They are now in the final stages but still need approvals to modify Post Office Road and to create a new bypass road that will connect Kilauea Lighthouse Village to the highway, diverting shop-goers and supply trucks around Kilauea Road.
