Three options presented for Aloha Stadium revamp

Three options have been presented for the redevelopment of Aloha Stadium Entertainment District in Hawaii.

Governor David Ige in July signed into law a bill that will provide funding for a new stadium development and three plans have now been put forward.

The district includes the 50,000-seat, multi-purpose Aloha Stadium and the capacity of the new stadium would be downgraded to 35,000.

According to HawaiiNewsNow, the first option would see the existing stadium demolished in phases before a new stadium is built in its place.

The second option would result in a new stadium being built to the west of the current facility, which would subsequently be demolished and transformed into an outdoor performance venue and community space.

If the third option is selected, a new stadium would be built south of the existing venue, with the current space to be transformed into a grid street pattern for a recreational space.

Under the new law put forward in July, $180m (£146m/€163m) in revenue bonds and $150m in general obligations were set aside to redevelop the stadium, while $20m in general funds will be put towards improving the district for public use.

The list of potential options has been outlined in a report for the Aloha Stadium Authority. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser noted that the report forms part of an environmental impact statement preparation notice.
