Kapiwai will include open space and a nonprofit component focusing on sustainability. The new 15-acre, 24 home development will be built atop a ridge overlooking a stream and is being marketed to potential buyers as providing the opportunity to live near Downtown Honolulu while being close to nature, with space to grow a garden, restore an auwai (traditional water channel for irrigation) and catch crayfish in the stream.
Only about half of the 15 acres will be developed into homes, the other seven acres will be kept as a preserve of gardens that will be protected from future development.
