2 large projects signal uptick in Maui private construction

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - Construction on Maui that fell off in late 2007 is making a comeback.

The Maui News reports Maui County has issued building permits for a six-story, eight-wing time-share resort on 26 acres at Kaanapali's North Beach.

The Starwood Vacation Ownership project is estimated to cost $304.5 million.

The plans for the 389-room resort known as Westin Nanea Ocean Villas include a 10-acre public park and a full-service restaurant featuring Hawaiian and international cuisine.

The county in January issued building permits for another large West Maui project.

The nearly $46.5 million West Maui Village development in Napili is planned for 9.6 acres north of Maui Preparatory Academy.

Its plans call for 158 one-, two- and three-bedroom units in 25 buildings.
