Haw. Code R. § 15-217-23 - Neighborhood zones

Current through February, 2022

(a) The regulating plan is divided into neighborhood zones corresponding to the mauka area plan. These neighborhood zones and their corresponding development and use rules and guidelines are as follows:
(1) Civic center zone (see Figure NZ.1 (civic center), dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter). The civic center neighborhood zone is located adjacent to the Hawaii capital district. The civic center zone will be characterized by civic buildings in campus-like settings with reduced building heights to respect the scale of existing historic resources both within and adjacent to the zone. Significant landscaping features will be retained and enhanced through new plantings;
(2) Kapiolani zone (see Figure NZ.2 (Kapiolani), dated September 2011,. made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter). The Kapiolani zone will be a central corridor providing for mixed-use buildings including ground floor commercial retail and services, and office and residential uses on upper floors;
(3) Thomas square zone (see Figure NZ.3 (Thomas square), dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter). The Thomas square zone will continue as a civic focal point for the mauka area through its civic buildings and uses facilitating educational, performance and entertainment endeavors. Buildings will be provide large setbacks and with complementary mature landscaping;
(4) Sheridan zone (see Figure NZ.4 (Sheridan), dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter). The Sheridan zone will consist predominately of a residential neighborhood with markedly lower scale buildings when compared to the remainder of the mauka area. However, commercial uses will continue along King, Pensacola, and Piikoi Streets; preferably within mixed-use building with upper floors of residential or office uses;
(5) Central Kakaako zone (see Figure NZ.5 (central Kakaako), dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter). The central Kakaako zone will support the continued operation of service businesses including those which are industrial such as repair shops and manufacturing or distribution, as well as residential mixed-use projects within its zone. Inadequate infrastructure will be repaired or upgraded to adequately support existing and planned development and uses;
(6) Pauahi zone (see Figure NZ.6 (Pauahi), dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter). The Pauahi zone will transition into a mixed-use urban village of significantly increased building heights and density. The Pauahi neighborhood will also continue to provide important link from the makai area of Kakaako's waterfront up toward mauka. Walkability will be improved through the insertion of new thoroughfares or passageways; and
(7) Auahi zone (see Figure NZ.7 (Auahi), dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter). The Auahi zone will function as Kakaako's main retail, restaurant and entertainment area. Changes to existing building forms will better accommodate pedestrians by relegating vehicles to less prominent positions. Additionally, new thoroughfares or passageways will reduce block sizes and, consequently, further increase pedestrian orientation.
(b) Standards applicable to neighborhood zones. All development, use, and construction within the neighborhood zones shall conform to the standards set forth in Figure 1.3 (development standards summary), dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter, and Figures NZ.1 to NZ.7, dated September 2011, made a part of this chapter, and attached at the end of this chapter, which allocate building type, frontage type, building placement, building form, land use, allowed height, build to line, and parking access.
(c) Standards applicable to entire mauka area. The standards applicable to each neighborhood zone, building type or frontage type may be further modified by subchapter 4 (area wide standards).
