The Aloha Tower Project will address several of the university community's most pressing needs, but like all projects it cannot address them all. As we move forward to the planning, design and construction of this highly anticipated university space we need to quickly narrow down our long wish list of its desired use. Addressing university-wide needs vs. stand-alone units or departments will provide the most optimal use of this addition to our campus and will be the best opportunity to build campus vibrancy and continue to link to the downtown Honolulu community. Maintaining an appropriate mixture of university and retail/restaurants is important to the project’s vitality and a requirement of the state.
This is the first of a series of feedback mechanisms as HPU engages in developing a 20-year campus master plan.
