Nohona Hale was envisioned as a "living" prototype of new building technologies blended with a traditional Hawaiian sense of "‘Ohana" . Encompassing approximately 111 affordable rental micro-units (approximately 300 square-feet each), Nohona Hale will be constructed as a 16-story tower set upon a two level podium which will house the lobby, living room, community spaces and management offices.

 

In keeping with the traditional Hawaiian sense of "Ohana", Nohona Hale will be home to a diverse demographic of ages and backgrounds, living under "one roof." The energy efficient micro-units will be marketed to qualified low-income individuals and couples earning 60% and below of the Area Median Income (AMI), and 10% of the project's units will be set aside to specifically serve families earning 30% AMI or less. Nohona Hale will offer a new type of mixed-use, mixed-income affordable housing development to Hawai'i residents earning lower incomes through the creation of highly social spaces and amenities paired with modern accommodations.
