Wild West turning into Westside Story?

Once The ‘Wild West’ Of The City, Kakaako Is Trying To Settle Down

Before Kakaako was zoned for industrial, residential and commercial uses, the area was filled with fishing villages, fishponds and salt ponds. In fact, Ala Moana Boulevard used to be where the shoreline was, said Aron Dote, a spokesperson for Kamehameha Schools.

Kamehameha Schools, which owns 17 percent of the land in the district, is developing nine blocks along the Ewa end of the district to create a community called Our Kakaako. The plan is to build an open, walkable neighborhood that can be used for residences, shops and restaurants.
