Kona industrial park set for quarrying site

By Andrew Gomes

Lanihau Properties LLC said it plans to develop a Big Island commercial and industrial park on 337 acres of North Kona land recently reclassified from conservation to urban use by the state Land Use Commission.

The property, next to Kaloko Industrial Park between the Keahole airport and Kailua, will be divided into 1-acre to 3-acre parcels for lease or sale available within 18 months.

Jim Greenwell, Lanihau Properties president, said the project, named West Hawaii Business Park, will satisfy growing needs of commercial and industrial businesses.

The site is being used by West Hawaii Concrete, Jas W. Glover Ltd. and Hawaii Pre-Cast under a conservation-use permit that has allowed for quarrying and related activities since the 1960s.
