County of Maui completes purchase of Hawaiian Telcom Building in Wailuku

The County of Maui has completed the purchase of three properties, including the Hawaiian Telcom Building in Wailuku for approximately $3.8 million.

The acquisition of the Hawaiian Telcom Building is aimed at making public service more readily accessible at the Kalana O Maui Campus in Wailuku, while achieving long-term savings in lease rents.

“This acquisition will provide the much-needed space for our information technology services and an emergency operating center more conducive to responding to public emergencies,” Mayor Michael Victorino said.

Department of Finance Director Scott Teruya said the debt service for the purchase of the Hawaiian Telcom property is expected to be offset by the reduction of leased office space.

“By moving non-customer oriented operations to this newly acquired property, the County has the ability to relocate departments that provide direct customer service to the public,” Director Teruya said.

The County also closed on the purchase of two other properties for Department of Environmental Management projects. These properties are:

  • 59.3 acres for $1,695,000 to expand the Central Maui Landfill from approximately 208 acres to 267.3 acres.
  • 5.1 acres for $599,000 to be used as a water reservoir at Honokowai for water storage capacity to expand and pressurize the County’s recycled water system in West Maui.

Approximately 0.7 acre of the Honokowai property is occupied by a private solar farm with a 20-year lease until June 2032. The County of Maui paid a discounted price on the remaining license fees due to acquire the solar farm license from the property owner.
