“The members of the Hawaii building trades are proud to work with the HIT on the construction of The Block, and to make affordable homeownership a reality for working Hawaiians.” —Damien Kim, President, Hawaii Building & Construction Trades Council


The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is helping to finance the $54.2 million new construction of The Block 803 Waimanu (The Block). Located in the Kaka’ako neighborhood of Honolulu, the development will create 153 condominium units at prices affordable to moderate and middle-income Hawaiians – Honolulu’s essential workforce. Project amenities will include a mechanical parking system, a community room and two landscaped roof decks for residential use.


The HIT is providing $17.1 million in financing by participating as the A lender in a $34.3 million A/B structure construction loan.


The Block will bring affordable quality housing to middle income families with 134 out of the 153 units affordable to households earning 80-140% of the area’s median income. Residents will benefit from easy walkability and access to shops, restaurants, schools, hospitals and the beach. In addition, The Block will offer an “Urban Mobility Package” program, which compromises of different transportation options such as bike rentals, car shares, and ride hailing. The planned “Civic Center” light rail station will provide further transit options nearby.
