HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A new luxury highrise is being planned for Ala Moana.

Developer Manaolana Partners, LLC. wants to replace the shopping center at the corner of Atkinson and Kapiolani boulevards with a 400-foot tower.

The 234-unit Manaolana Place Hotel and Residential Condominium Development would be 50 feet higher than currently allowed. But the developer would contribute $1 million to the affordable housing fund.

The project will reportedly include 125 hotel units, 109 condo units, park areas and shops.
