ASB is planning to build its new headquarters across the street from Aala Park.

The projects was put on hold after the discovery of ancient remains.

But according to the Star Advertiser, the banks is moving forward with the plan after making changes and securing the approval of the Oahu Island Burial Council.

"We want to make sure that with our new campus being built in the area that we contribute to the community that we're going to be in hopefully for a long time," said ASB CFO, Robert Nobriga said.

The volunteers removed graffiti, painted light poles and got rid of garbage on College Walk, Sun Yat Sen Mall and Aala Park.

Some students from Roosevelt High School also pitched in for the effort.
