Senior housing project proposed for Kahului

A senior affordable housing project consisting of two six-story buildings is planned for Kahului on the island of Maui in Hawaii by Catholic Charities Housing Development Corp.

In addition to the multifamily residential buildings, there will also be a two-story, 7,500-square-foot multipurpose building, parking and related improvements, according to a draft environmental assessment released last week. 

The proposed senior housing project will feature 164 one-bedroom units for rent to seniors, age 55 and older, who earn 60 percent or less of the county median income (which was $74,100 for a family as of April), and a two-bedroom resident manager’s unit. 

According to the draft EA, maximum gross monthly rents could range from $484 to $969, based on this year’s HUD income and gross rent limits and could change when the project is completed and rented. 

The multipurpose building will include offices for Catholic Charities Hawai’i, which will provide on-site case management services for residents, as well as dedicated space for residents. 

There will be approximately 260 parking stalls. Carport structures with photovoltaic panels may be provided in the parking lots, subject to availability of funding. 

The study said that no significant environmental impacts are anticipated with the project. 
The project is expected to cost nearly $47.8 million and is anticipated to span 32 months.
