Lahaina Cannery Mall to get facelift and expanded Safeway
LAHAINA – Lahaina Cannery Mall will be undergoing a renovation to refresh the mall’s exterior.
The renovations will retain the character of the historic cannery and update the structure’s exterior with new paint and finishes.
In addition, Safeway will undergo an expansion into the mall’s interior to occupy currently vacant tenant spaces.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to revitalize Lahaina Cannery Mall so we can better serve locals and visitors alike,” said Jay Kerner, president of U.S. Realty Partners, managing partner of the mall’s ownership group.
“We recognize that the mall has long served as a gathering place for area visitors and the West Maui community. The investment we’re making here is intended to maintain and even enhance that role.”
The initial demolition stage of the renovation is underway. It is anticipated that the entire project will be completed in the second quarter of 2018.
The renovations will include a freshly painted exterior and updated finishes along with new landscaping and hardscapes to improve pedestrian flow.
In addition, awnings and certain outdated architectural features will be removed to create more welcoming mall entrances to entice shoppers to explore the mall’s interior.
Current tenant ABC Stores will relocate to a larger renovated space adjacent to its existing location.
The Retail Services Division of Jones Lang LaSalle Hawaii is leading leasing activity at the mall.
Concurrently, Safeway will expand from 37,650 to 64,500 square feet inside of the mall’s existing structure but will not require structural changes, nor will it impact the building’s footprint.
The newly renovated Safeway will feature an organic produce section, expanded deli services, and new meat and fish counters.
The six-month Safeway renovation will begin in June with a grand re-opening expected in June 2018.
U.S. Realty Partners is a real estate investment company specializing in the acquisition, operation and renovation of high-quality retail properties located in strategic market areas of the western United States.
