Ka Makana Ali'i

For the first time in a quarter century, a new ground-up regional mall has opened its doors on Oahu. Anchored by the first Macy’s in West Oahu, phase one of Ka Makana Ali‘i features a state-of-the-art Consolidated Theatres, a six-story hotel, and with an exciting mix of more than 100 shops and restaurants, the retail center is a shopper’s dream.

Adding to the Experience

With phase one of Ka Makana Ali‘i comprising approximately 700,000 square-feet, logistics surrounding the project and schedule were taken into careful consideration. Additionally, the site had to accommodate multiple general contractors as Macy’s and ‘Ōlino, the first state-of-the-art luxury cinema, were built by different contractors. This dynamic approach prompted PCL to step forward and take on the role of lead contractor, coordinating the major construction activities occurring on site. The common goal of a successful project among all stakeholders inspired collaboration and mutual respect during every phase of construction.

The 175-key Hampton Inn & Suites along with the core and shell for 24 Hour Fitness were added to PCL’s scope of work during construction. The hotel is the first Hampton by Hilton in Hawaii, and it conveniently provides guests unparalleled access to the shopping and dining experience at Ka Makana Ali‘i. The project team put forth a tremendous effort in order to maintain the original schedule, which would not have been possible without the collaborative relationships formed on-site.

Bringing Jobs to the West Side

Aside from the world-class shopping and dining experiences that accompany the new mall, Ka Makana Ali‘i creates jobs for West Oahu residents, helping the growing region realize an economic boost. During the course of construction, more than 3,000 construction jobs were created for the project, and approximately 6,500 people will eventually be employed as a result of the mall’s operations. In addition, the center is expected to bring in more than $5 million annually in tax revenue.

Perhaps what is most significant about the project is the partners​​hip between DeBartolo Development and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands that will create revenue to support the construction of new homes for DHHL beneficiaries, as well as programs that benefit Native Hawaiian interests statewide.

With Ka Makana Ali‘i gracing the West side of Oahu, reside​​nts are now able to live, work, shop, and play in one beautiful location.  ​​​​
