Land and Power….

Update: An April 13, 2017 statement from Linda Schatz: "I want to call to your attention that I do not work for Hanapohaku LLC who owns the Sharks Cove project. I have removed them as a client several weeks ago due to their activities on the site that I do not condone."

Developer proposes expanded uses of Pupukea property

Star-Adv April 8, 2017 (excerpts with additional information in parenthesis)

…A North Shore property owner that has racked up city fines for unpermitted construction and food truck operations is proposing to redevelop the site with more retail use after withdrawing a smaller development plan a year ago in the face of community opposition.

Development firm Hanapohaku LLC wants to build several one- and two-story retail buildings, space for eight food trucks and covered parking in a new bid to redevelop the 2.7-acre property across from Sharks Cove in Pupukea.

Hanapohaku, led by Andrew Yani and Lawrence “Cully” McCully Judd III, also intends to connect the envisioned complex to the parking lot of an adjacent Foodland store for shared use.

(Here is where the Star-Adv omits any reference to “Hanapohaku Project Manager Linda Schatz”, also known as Mrs Brian Schatz.  Fortunately you are reading Hawai’i Free Press, so this key detail is front and center.)

Retail space in the proposed complex totals 27,500 square feet, more than the neighboring 23,000-square-foot Foodland.

A sketch of the plan identifies possible tenants as a couple of restaurants, a pharmacy (or head shop), an urgent-care clinic (or medicated marijuana dispensary), a copy and delivery shop, a yoga studio (or massage parlor), a child care service, a gallery, a surf shop and other retail….

“It’s not a resort retail play,” he said.

(Know them by what they deny.)

Some residents, however, are skeptical about Hana­pohaku’s intentions, given what it has done since buying the property in 2014 for $5.5 million.

“The trust has really been broken,” said Joe Wilson, a member of the Sharks Cove Coalition, formed to monitor Hanapohaku’s effort.

Hanapohaku has received five city violation notices over the past four years for unpermitted work, including construction of decks, plumbing, fencing and paving.

In January the city Department of Planning and Permitting notified Hana­pohaku that commercial activities on the site must cease and that structures including food trucks, tables, benches, decks, fences, temporary bathrooms, septic tanks, shipping containers and parking must be removed because no special management area permit exists for them.

…One pertains to a deck and plumbing, for which Hanapohaku has incurred $32,500 in fines. The other is for the illegal commercial uses that have drawn $12,000 in fines that continue to grow by $500 a day.

DPP has referred the violation over illegal uses to city attorneys…. 

Wilson said Sharks Cove Coalition members are wary of Hanapohaku because of how it tried to obtain permits for a smaller redevelopment plan in 2015.

The prior plan sought to add six 600-square-foot retail cottages, a restroom and several independent wastewater treatment systems. Because the site comprises three subdivided parcels, Hanapohaku applied to DPP for three separate “minor” special management area permits that govern areas close to the ocean to control shoreline and marine environment impacts.

Minor SMA permits are supposed to be for projects that cost no more than $500,000. Projects above this threshold require a major SMA permit that involves more stringent review, a public hearing and possibly an environmental assessment or more thorough environmental impact study.

Hanapohaku submitted construction estimates of $445,000, $484,000 and $498,000 for its three permits, which were submitted seven months apart, and DPP granted them. But area environmental watchdogs mobilized to contest the city’s approval.

State Sen. Gil Riviere wrote to DPP’s director in January 2016 asking that the approvals be reconsidered.

“It is indisputable that the developer is building one unified project across these three parcels,” Riviere wrote. “As such, the project segmentation circumvents the spirit and the letter of Coastal Zone Management and the City and County of Honolulu SMA rules, and it clearly violates (state environmental law).”….

If Hanapohaku can obtain necessary permits, it anticipates construction could start in 2019 and be done in 2020.

SA: Sharks Cove plan must regain trust (April 13--still no mention of Schatz.)

Mrs Brian Schatz is ‘Project Manager’ for Illegal North Shore Commercial Activities

HNN: A permitting dispute is intensifying on Oahu's North Shore, where city officials have issued a third notice of violation for a controversial commercial development near Sharks Cove.

The city's Department of Planning and Permitting has ordered Hanapohaku LLC to immediately remove several illegal structures, including food trucks, eating areas and temporary toilets.

The landowner reportedly apologized to the community last April for developing the three lots, totaling nearly three acres, without the proper permits. But little has changed since then.

"Since that point, we've seen increased commercial activity and increased violations on the property," said Maxx Phillips, managing director for Malama Pupukea-Waimea. "We haven't seen their promise come to full fruition,"

Company officials maintain that they've been taking steps to address the concerns.

"There actually has been a dialing back," said Linda Schatz, (aka Mrs. Brian Schatz) project manager for Hanapohaku LLC. "They actually had gotten rid of a couple of tenants during that period, and they've dialed back some of the built items that were not permitted."

(Hanapohaku sole ‘Member’ is YANI,ANDREW D, co-founder of Bonterra which went out of business last year.)
