jet83 - I ran into a guy when I was there in October that claimed to be an architect in Honolulu. He said his office was in the Hyatt Regency hotel. He had told me that they are actually going to implode the western most tower of the PK. That should be exciting, as it's wedged in there pretty tight.

Hope they are able to renovate and revive it.

Thanks for the post.

Aloha,

I understand the tallest tower will remain and the other two torn down.

Could be a little dusty for sure !

The new place could have three swimming pools, condo's and of course, more shopping.

With the Hyatt spending $100 mil. next door and the work at IMP, looks like an upgrade is in the works.

Aloha

jet - I could have misunderstood him, but I thought he said the taller one was coming down. Doesn't matter, I'm just glad they are going to do some work on it.

What exactly, if you know, is going on at the Hyatt? They have had the same scaffolding at the entrances for the last two years, or at least it seems like that. And I can't tell that they are ever doing any work. Not really a problem, just looks terrible.

Aloha,

Here is some info on the Hyatt.

Yeah PB, those scaffolds might make the less informed people think a "New" restaurant is in the works.

Totally Nuts.

It's time. Well, it's overdue! Let's see if they stick to that schedule.

Thanks, jet83.

(It would be fun to watch them implode the towers - but the area is so dense. Seems tricky.)

jet - thanks for that but it doesn't take scaffolding to change the shower heads does it? LOL

And they have been up there the last several times we have been there. I never have figured out what they are for.

This may help, placebets. I didn't see any scaffolding last week ... but I wasn't looking for any ...

Hey, placebets ... if I were changing showerheads, I would need scaffolding! (Be kind to your vertically-challenged friends!)

Oh, sorry BL. But I doubt you would erect them at the entrance to your house.

LOL
