Look at what's up and coming in Kona.

Aloha, Lance Owens (RS) with LUVA Real Estate taking a look at what is happening in your community.

Here is the latest press release from JLL (contact information at the bottom)
Just eight miles from the  Kona  International  Airport, Niumalu  Marketplace  will  be  
located  in  the  heart  of West  Hawaii,  in  the  Kailua-Kona  trade  area,  and  will be 
surrounded by four major road systems: Palani Road / Kuakini Highway / Henry Street / Queen Kaahumanu Highway.  These arterial roads receive  the  following average daily traffic counts (source:  State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation – 4/26/2016):

Henry Street   12,250 vehicles

Kuakini Highway 15,340 vehicles

Queen Kaahumanu 24,620 vehicles

The center’s location is adjacent to renowned local and national tenants such as Wal-Mart, Lowe’s, Starbucks, Denny’s, CVS/Longs Drug Stores, Target, Ross Dress for Less, O’Reilly  Auto  Parts,  and  Pier  1  Imports  to name a few. Additionally, the vibrant tourist destination of Alii Drive is located less than a mile away, which is host to world famous restaurants, retailers, hotels, and iconic landmarks  such  as  the  Kailua-Kona  Pier  which serves  as  the  finish-line  for  the  Ironman  Triathlon  as well as the official weigh in location for the long running, International 
Billfish Tournament.

Kona’s Newest Retail Development
Once built, Niumalu Marketplace will be home to a new 63,000 square foot prototype  Safeway store  along with  Kona’s  first  Safeway-branded  fuel  center.  The 208,000 square foot  neighborhood center will  also be home to an exciting variety of local, national, and first-to-market tenants. Due to its extremely convenient location and the retail and services to be provided, Niumalu Marketplace will serve the growing  residential population of Kailua-Kona 
plus the abundant visitor demographic as well.

Nice! And what is the projected completion time line?

Also, can you tell me if the constuction of the road between the airport and Kailua-Kona is done? They were still working on it when I visited in July.
