FROM THE HONOLULU ADVERTISER FRIDAY DECEMBER 18, 2009:
A developer broke ground yesterday on a 50-unit transitional and long-term housing project to serve the homeless in Wai'anae.
Housing Solutions Inc., the nonprofit developer of the 4.3-acre parcel for Sea Winds Apartments, said it is the only project in its inventory that includes transitional housing for couples without children.
Construction of 20 studios and 30 two-bedroom townhomes is expected to take 16 months. Sea Winds will be the eighth facility managed by HSI. Its seven other facilities have 646 units and house more than 1,200 men, women and children.
