A RICHNESS OF LAND AND SEA

Centuries ago, this site was famous for its richness of natural resources: fish ponds and salt beds. Today, it is one of Hawaii’s most desirable neighborhoods—an exotic landscape of black lava and lush greens facing the rolling sea. The gentle terrain and idyllic climate make it a renowned destination for outdoor pursuits.

Masterplanned for Renewal

The community’s bold vision is to masterplan opportunities to live well, train hard, and unwind in one of the planet’s most spectacular locations. Residential neighborhoods are interspersed with active outdoor experiences, fitness facilities, restaurants and innovative amenities. A training circuit winds through the property and a greenway connects the more active areas of the community with the relaxing Ocean Club, where families connect over dinner, sunset viewing rituals, and stories beside fire tables under the stars.

“Our background in adventure sports and all-season destination development is perfectly aligned for this area of Hawaii. The Big Island is a coveted destination for outdoor play. The importance of play and human performance will be front and center in our minds as we create the masterplan for Kaʻupulehu, while the spirit and energy of the island will be infused throughout.”
