Haseko to build Tokai West Oahu campus in move toward commercial development
Haseko Development has been chosen by Hawaii Tokai International College to build its new campus next to the University of Hawaii West Oahu.
Haseko Development, which is currently developing one of the largest residential projects underway in Hawaii — the $320 million Ka Makana at Hoakalei in Ewa Beach — has been chosen by Hawaii Tokai International College to build its new campus next to the University of Hawaii West Oahu.
Haseko Management Group Inc. is serving as the construction manager for the site work and general contractor for vertical construction on the project, which recently broke ground. Multiple sources told PBN that San Francisco-based Swinerton Builders, which has an office in Honolulu, is part of the development team.
Haseko is no stranger to the Japan-based Tokai University Educational System, as it has worked with it on its previous campus on Kapiolani Boulevard in Honolulu, a spokeswoman for the developer told PBN in an email.
The college will be relocating from its Kapiolani facility to the West Oahu campus in Kapolei, which is expected to open in April 2015.
The new location, which will include student housing, a learning center and a multi-purpose room, encompasses six acres of land fronting UH West Oahu and will enroll up to 300 students.
In August, PBN reported that the brokerage firm representing Tokai put the 172,036-square-foot high-rise Kapiolani building back on the market.
Waipahu-based Albert C. Kobayashi Inc. has been charged with building the UH West Oahu campus.
