The new owner of the Safeway-anchored Kauai Village Shopping Center has hired Honolulu-based Commercial Consultants Inc. to handle leasing at the center and has plans to remodel the buildings’ exteriors.
Ultimate Air Maui will be the fourth location for the Jonesboro, Arkansas, company, which has other locations in Jonesboro; Cape Girardeau, Missouri; and Stillwater, Oklahoma. AJ Cordero of Honolulu-based Commercial Consultants Inc. represented Ultimate Air in the transaction.
At least five food-related tenants have signed leases for space there, including Uncle Bo’s restaurant; Real, a Gastropub; Hibachi; Tea Time and HICraft Kitchen, according to Brooks Borror, principal broker of Commercial Consultants Inc., which handled the leasing for developer Gerding Edlen.
“We really wanted local eclectic businesses,” Borror said. “National quick-service restaurants weren’t really the target.”
Honolulu-based Commercial Consultants Inc. is handling the leasing for the 263,781-square-foot center at the Maui Business Park in Kahului owned by TRC, formerly known as Terramar Retail Centers, which also owns Laulani Village in Ewa Beach on Oahu and Hokulei Village in Lihue on Kauai.
