Smart Growth Principles

Offering a range of housing opportunities with mixed land use and walkable neighborhoods is an important aspect of Grove Farm’s Lihuʻe-Puhi Master Plan Community. These Smart Growth principles include a choice of housing opportunities. such as single-family dwellings like Hokulei Estates, multi-family units such as Halelani and Hoʻokena, duplexes including Regency at Huleia and Halemalu, and an assisted living community with the Regency at Puakea. All of these residential homes are within close proximity to the middle school, community college, restaurants, retail establishments, offices, and recreational activities.

The Puakea development in Lihue will include just over 100 beautiful residential lots along the Puakea Golf Course, similar to the Pikake residential project. The prime central Kaua’i location is close to many services, commercial and civic areas, and some will offer views of the Nawiliwili Harbor, Kalapaki Bay, the Pacific Ocean, Huleʻia River, Niumalu Valley or the majestic Haupu Mountain range. Grove Farm’s subdivisions are always developed with the local resident in mind whereby shared appreciation liens are implemented to deter speculation.
