Haw. Code R. § 15-23-80 - Joint development of two or more adjacent zoning lots

Current through February, 2022

(a) Whenever two or more lots are developed in accordance with the provisions of this section, they shall be considered and treated as one "development lot" for purposes of this chapter. The maximum building height and density shall be calculated on the basis of the combined land area of all lots being included in the joint development project. Should joint development involve mauka area and makai area lots, floor area and uses permissible in the mauka area shall not be transferred to the makai area.
(b) Owners, duly authorized agents of the owners, or duly authorized lessees, holding leases with a minimum of thirty years remaining in their terms, of adjacent lots, or lots directly facing each other but separated by a street, may apply for permission to undertake such a joint development to the authority or to the executive director, as the case may be.
(c) In applying for such permission, the landowners, duly authorized agents of the owners, or lessees shall submit an agreement which binds themselves and their successors in title, or lease individually and collectively, to maintain the pattern of development proposed in such a way that there will be conformity with applicable zoning rules. The right to enforce the agreement shall also be granted to the authority or executive director, as the case may be. The agreement shall be subject to the approval of the authority or executive director, as the case may be.
(d) If it is found that the area involved is compact, regular or logical, and that the proposed agreement assures future protection of the public interest and is consistent with the intent of the makai area plan, the request may be approved. Upon approval, the agreement, which shall be part of the conditions of development, shall be filed as a covenant running with the land with the bureau of conveyances or the assistant registrar of the land court.
