Project Feasibility Study for Resort – Molokai Island

Confidential Client  |  As hotel-resort development consultants, we provided a project feasibility study for resort with financial projections and capital budgeting, along with select development due diligence items.   For a proposed resort on the mauka side of Kamehameha V Highway east of Kaunakakai on the island of Moloka’i.   StoneCreek has worked with clients throughout the Hawaiian Islands preparing due diligence reviews for proposed acquisitions, conceptual approaches to resort development, and project feasibility studies for resorts, shopping centers, and planned communities.


Most of the history of the first Hawaiians in Molokai comes from chants, passed down from generation to generation, which have kept a chronology of events, battles and lineage. Captain James Cooke signed Molokai in November 1778, on his first visit to the region – the Sandwich Islands as he called them. Captain George Dixon in 1786 was the first European to actually set foot on and visit Molokai.  Hawaiians first migrated to Molokai about 650 A.D., generally considered to have come first from the Marquesas, then in double hulled canoes from Tahiti and other South Pacific islands.


On the Hawaiian islands, feasibility studies for resorts can become complex, with sensibility for cultural and historical factors of Native Hawaiians requiring – always required.   This project feasibility study for resort was no exception.

North Kohala Ranch – Initial Land Use Plan

Chalon International of Hawaii  |  Real estate advisory services supporting a master-planning evaluation of North Kohala Ranch on Hawaii’s Big Island.   In December 1988, Chalon International of Hawaii (Chalon Hawaii) was established in Hawaii, as a subsidiary of Chalon Corporation, a Japanese corporation. Chalon Hawaii was established to acquire, own and develop the vacant land in North Kohala, (Kohala Land). The Kohala Land consisted of about 19,384 acres, the majority which is zoned for agriculture. The land had been used for sugar cane production for approximately 100 years until the early 1970’s when the facility was closed. After the cessation of the sugar cane operations there were no major activities on the land, which was left vacant. In December 1988, Chalon Hawaii acquired the Kohala Land.


The extreme north tip of the Big Island of Hawaii comprises the North Kohala District. Portion of this historic country, the birthplace of Kamehameha the Great, were acquired by a Japanese railroad magnate with the intention of creating a large-scale, master-planned destination resort and retirement community.

Market studies, product concepts, financial feasibility, and other pre-development matters were integrated in an initial land use and development plan for the property.
