1917 Kaimuki Home Receives Demolition Permit

The new owners of a 1917 Kaimuki home located at 832 6th Avenue were issued a permit on December 2 to demolish the house.  Permit applications were filed with the City and County of Honolulu on December 29 to construct two separate single family homes and a wall on the property. These permits are still under review and have not yet been approved.

Historic Hawaii Foundation is reviewing the situation to ensure that the permitting process has allowed the appropriate agencies to comment. This case has drawn attention to irregularities in the review process that need to be reviewed comprehensively.
