HONOLULU (AP) - A revised housing proposal calling for 140 condominium units in Honolulu is drawing even more opposition from neighbors than an earlier development.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports developer Prospect Properties LLC originally wanted to build a 95-unit condo in the Punchbowl area when it purchased 12 parcels containing 19 homes in 2007.
Neighbors also opposed that project, which never broke ground as the recession unfolded. A special district permit created for the project expired in 2010.
The developer notified the Makiki-Tantalus Neighborhood Board last month that it was moving ahead with a revised plan for 140 units for the Skyline Honolulu project.
The developer anticipates submitting a new permit application soon.
Frank Robben is among neighbors opposing the project. He says 60 units would be more appropriate for the area.
