Blessing for Honolulu 'workforce' apartments

Kamehameha Schools is beginning construction of Honolulu rental apartments that will be priced affordably for median-income workers.

Kamehameha Schools officials say the 54 studio- and 1-bedroom apartments in Kakaako on Ala Moana Boulevard will be the first "workforce housing" rental project to be built in urban Honolulu in the last decade.

A blessing is scheduled for Thursday morning. Kamehameha's commercial real estate division is to provide an update on its 15-year master-planned Kakaako development project.
