In light of the economic downturn we've experienced over the past few years, I found a recent article in Pacific Business News very interesting. Rather than debating whether there will be enough consumers for all the housing on Oahu, the experts in the article were discussing almost the exact opposite: whether or not there would be enough housing in Kakaako to meet the demand in the next few years. There are nearly 4,000 new condominiums planned for the area in the next few years. It seems some are now calling Kakaako the "Third City".
