Mayor Michael Victorino inspected Catholic Charities Housing Development Corporation’s recently completed Kahului Lani Phase 2 project today. Phase 2 adds 84 units to the 81 units that opened for tenants in 2020.
Tenants began moving in to Phase 2 in January. Phase 1 is at 100 percent capacity and opened for tenants in 2020.
Kahului Lani’s two apartment buildings provide 165 senior rental units to Maui residents ages 55 and over two earn 60 percent or less than the Maui County median income. The development includes a 7,500-square-foot multipurpose facility with social services by Catholic Charities Hawaii.
“It was my pleasure to meet some of the residents today to see how happy they are to enjoy safe, clean and affordable housing, conveniently located near shopping, Maui Bus routes and the medical facilities,” Mayor Victorino said. “I eagerly look forward to Maui County’s ongoing partnership with Catholic Charities for more housing in the future. Also, mahalo to Hale Mahaolu, the project’s property manager.”
"Catholic Charities Hawaii is grateful for the support of Mayor Victorino and Maui County as part of our mission to build affordable housing for the residents of Maui,” said Catholic Charities Hawaii President and CEO Rob Van Tassell. “The development of our Kahului Lani senior affordable rental complex and our planned Hale Pilina affordable family complex would not be possible without the help of the county and community."
Mayor Victorino also visited nearly 5 acres next to the Kahului Post Office. Catholic Charities Housing Development Corporation plans to develop 178 affordable family units (108 one-bedroom and 70 two-bedroom units) in four three-story buildings on the property, formerly used as the site of the Maui Swap Meet.
A draft environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact was published for the project in January 2021.
