Last Monday: Anthony Ching, Hawaii Community Development Authority
What’s going on in Kakaako? Anthony J.H. Ching is the Executive Director of the Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA) which is charged with planning and implementing community development programs for areas designated as “Community Development Districts” by the State Legislature. The 600-acre Kaka’ako District is bounded by Piikoi, King, Punchbowl Streets and Ala Moana Boulevard, and includes the waterfront area from Kewalo Basin to Forrest Avenue. Through a private-public partnership between the State of Hawaii and major landowners Howard Hughes Corp. and Kamehameha Schools, the HCDA seeks to establish Kakaako as the most desirable urban place in Hawaii in which people can work, live, visit, learn and play.
