Posted November 05, 2019 09:11:00 Hawaii villas are an iconic and iconic sight in Hawaii.
But the state is home to just 1.6 million residents, and the island has a population of just under 1.2 million.
But a new proposal to turn a former Japanese-built villa on Oahu into a tourist destination and cultural attraction has just become official.
A local developer has agreed to purchase the villas and turn them into a resort, a hotel, and a hotel resort.
The project is to be completed by 2026, but is set to run until 2040, according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser.
The proposal would convert the villa at 724 S. Pearl St. into a boutique hotel.
It will have an oceanfront lobby, outdoor terrace, and guest rooms.
The resort would be in the middle of a public park and would include a swimming pool, a beach, and gardens.
The villas will be converted into a hotel by 2027, and then into a commercial park by 2030.
David Ige is expected to announce the plan later this month.
