3 finalists to build, design new Aloha Stadium announced

Three developer-led teams, each listing some elements of Hawaii, are finalists to present proposals for the construction of the New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District, according to a post on nased.hawaii.gov today.

The three priority teams – Aloha Stadium District Partners, Aloha Stadium Hui Hilina’i and Waiola Development Partners – emerged from the application for qualification that drew six respondents in May.

The winner, to be selected before the end of 2021, will enter into a public-private partnership with the state to realize mixed-use construction on the 98-acre site occupied by the 45-year-old stadium and connect with Honolulu. Authority for Rapid Transportation station.

The state has committed up to $ 350 million for its share of the project.

“We are fortunate to have selected three highly qualified potential partners who are as committed and passionate to moving NASED forward as we are, especially at a time when Hawaii needs to drive our economic recovery and sustainability,” said Chris Kinimaka . public works administrator for the Department of Accounting and General Services, said in a statement.

According to the statement, the three finalists contain a blend of “international expertise, national sports design and construction experience, and outstanding talent from the local industry”.

The next step in the process is to request proposals. During the bid, the state said that each finalist should propose their own designs for the stadium, along with plans for the facility’s construction, financing and maintenance, as well as a master planning approach for the district.

According to the timeline, the RFP should start in mid-2021, and a contract with the final developer in the public-private partnership should be executed by the end of the year.

Officials said it was too early to say whether the stadium could be completed by the original September 2, 2023 projection.

“Due to the delays caused by COVID-19 and the non-approval of (Senate Law 2940) this year, the tender schedule has been adjusted accordingly,” Kinimaka said. “We expect to test and confirm the stadium’s opening date as part of the RFP phase.”
