Ward Warehouse could be replaced by new development

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Most or all of Ward Warehouse could be demolished if a new development is approved.

Landowner Howard Hughes Corp. filed plans to build a pair of high rises, along with retail space, at the site. The plans must first be approved by the Hawaii Community Development Authority.

Demolition of the parking lot and most of the current shopping space could begin as soon as next year. Howard Hughes has several other projects in this area.
