The State of Hawaii (US) has begun its hunt for a developer for the real estate portion of the New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District (NASED).

The ‘New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District’ stated that the 98-acre NASED project will involve two Request for Proposals (RFP): One for the new Aloha Stadium (Stadium Project) on approximately 20 acres and the other for the development of the land surrounding the stadium (Real Estate Project), which comprises the remainder of the NASED site.

The New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District (NASED) plan calls for a 35,000-seat stadium and is expected to cover 98 acres. It includes modernizing the space by building mixed-use developments, a rail station, hotels, retail centers, and more.

The NASED project will encompass the construction of a new stadium in addition to related ancillary development that will serve to create a New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District (NASED) on the grounds of the existing Aloha Stadium site in Hālawa (US).

The 50,000-capacity Aloha Stadium is a multipurpose stadium located in Hālawa, Hawaii, a western suburb of Honolulu. It is the largest stadium in the State of Hawaii (US). Aloha Stadium is home to the University of Hawaiʻi Rainbow Warriors football team.

State officials informed that the developer who is selected will be responsible for developing the 20 acres of land surrounding the stadium.

The ‘New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District’ quoted Stacey Jones, Crawford Architects Owner and Senior Principal as stating, “We do have very clear idea of the vision that we’d like to have portrayed, and that is one of a mixed-use, highly diverse community that sets up the whole of the site and the neighborhood for a commercial and economic success.”

Australia-headquartered Crawford Architects specializes in all aspects of the planning and design of complex projects encompassing mixed-use, arenas, stadiums, convention centers, retail, and hotels.

Three finalists have already been selected for the stadium portion of the project and a briefing session for interested parties will be held in the virtual mode on May 4th, 2021.
