Cultural Impact Assessment – Kekaulike Street
ASM Affiliates is preparing a Cultural Impact Assessment (CIA) for the proposed Kekaulike Street Improvements Project in the Chinatown neighborhood of downtown Honolulu, Kona District, Island of Oʻahu. The City and County of Honolulu intends to convert Kekaulike Street into a shared-use street, which will improve pedestrian accessibility and safety, and promote economic and social activities in the newly created shared space between North Hotel Street and Nimitz Highway; and provide a more coherent connection between the existing Kekaulike Mall and the future Chinatown rail station at the corner of Kekaulike Street and Nimitz Highway.
In addition to its association with Chinatown, the proposed project area has been associated with the traditional land divisions Kikihale and Kapuukolo, and the ahupuaʻa of Nuʻuanu and Honolulu. We are seeking consultation with community members that might have knowledge of traditional cultural uses of the proposed project area; or who are involved in any ongoing cultural practices on or in the general vicinity of the subject Kekaulike Street.
