Located in Central O‘ahu between downtown Honolulu and the second city of Kapolei, Koa Ridge is Hawaiʻi’s first "surban" master-planned community—combining the spaciousness and beauty of a suburban location with all the conveniences of urban living. After 20 years of planning and development, Castle & Cooke broke ground in 2017 on the $2 Billion, mixed-use development that sits on 576 acres of land between Mililani and Waipio.
Koa Ridge will include a variety of single- and multi-family condominium homes with modern floor plans offered at a wide spectrum of price points. 30% of the homes will be within the affordable housing range. Ultimately, Koa Ridge will provide approximately 3,500 homes designed for Hawaiʻi families.
The first commercial projects being developed are The Gateway at Koa Ridge and the Koa Ridge Business Park. The Gateway includes plans for retail stores, restaurants, a big box store, a grocery store, and other services. The Koa Ridge Business Park contains 12 premium, fee-simple parcels on 10.7 acres with approximately 466,000 square feet of prime Industrial-Commercial Mixed Use (IMX-1) zoned land.
A state-of-the-art Healthcare Campus is planned for Koa Ridge on 16 acres being donated by Castle & Cooke. Additional land donations include 12 acres for a public elementary school and 8 acres for a fire station and other uses such as churches, recreation areas, and daycare centers.
Koa Ridge is projected to create over 1,000 construction jobs and 1,300 indirect jobs each year. In addition, 2,000 permanent jobs will be created at the Healthcare Campus, the planned Elementary School, the Koa Ridge Business Park, and at the retail and restaurant establishments in the Village and The Gateway.
Committed to building toward a sustainable future for Hawaiʻi, Koa Ridge incorporates clean energy technologies, as well as innovative community design that promotes non-motor traffic. By providing jobs, services, and amenities all within walking distance at Koa Ridge, we will help decrease the number of cars on Hawaiʻi’s roads, thereby reducing traffic and carbon emissions.

Mililani is Castle & Cooke’s award-winning, flagship master-planned in Central Oʻahu that was developed over a 40-year period, and now consists of over 20 unique home series and approximately 16,000 homes.
Planning for Mililani began in 1958, and residential homes in Mililani Town, the community's first offering, went to market in 1968. Ground was broken for Mililani Mauka, the final phase of the company's master plan, in 1990.
Over the years, Mililani has won numerous building industry and community design awards, including being named All-America City in 1986 by the National Civic League.
Today, Mililani is home to over 50,000 residents who enjoy its many recreational, educational, and business opportunities. Known for its wide tree-lined streets and abundant open spaces, the planned community includes seven public schools, more than 21 parks, 7 recreation centers, and about 12 churches. There also are 3 major shopping centers—Town Center of Mililani, Mililani Shopping Center, and Mililani Market Place—and a variety of other health- and service-related businesses.
Sales of the final phase of Mililani took place in 2008, closing a major chapter in the companyʻs 150-year history. Ultimately, Castle & Cooke invested over $3.5 billion in infrastructure and improvements to create this one-of-a-kind dream community.
