Cincinnati – Macy’s has plans to anchor the new Ka Makana Ali‘i in Kapolei in West O’ahu, Hawaii, with a 103,000-square-foot, one-level store.
Subject to final lease provisions, current plans call for the store, which will offer home merchandise, apparel and accessories, to open in mid-2016. The new Macy’s store is expected to employ approximately 180 associates.
Ka Makana Ali‘i, is a major mixed-use project with more than 100 retail, hotel, dining, entertainment and office components. With 1.4 million square feet on 67 acres, it will be the first all-new regional shopping center to be built in Hawaii in more than 30 years. Macy’s is planned to be the largest single retail tenant in the center. When completed, Ka Makana Ali‘i will be among the largest shopping centers in Hawaii.
“West O’ahu is a vibrant marketplace for residents, tourists and military families, and Macy’s will be the first fashion department store in this area,” said Peter Sachse, Macy’s chief stores officer. “It will be a great place for us to serve customers with a tailored merchandise assortment and shopping experience that meets the needs of Hawaii’s residents and visitors.”
