ⓘ Lahaina Gateway

Lahaina Gateway is a shopping mall located in Lahaina, Hawaii. The mall was completed in April 2008 and covers approximately 137.000 square feet of retail space on two floors. It has been managed and owned by various companies, and the mall itself has been in foreclosure on two occasions. Some of the current tenants at the center include Barnes & Noble, Lahainas Department of Motor Vehicles offices, and a Foodland Farms grocery store. Lahaina Gateway was inspired by traditional Hawaiian architecture, with some of the buildings facades featuring stucco accents.


1. Background

Lahaina Gateway opened in April 2008, becoming the largest shopping center in western Maui. The mall was developed by Western Partitions, Inc. with Kiewit Construction serving as its contractor. It took approximately 13 months to construct the 136.683 square feet 13.000 m 2 of retail space across 11 acres, with the developer investing $2.8 million USD in the project. TNP Strategic Trust acquired the center, which had gone into foreclosure, in 2011 for approximately US$32 million. However, TNP Chief Executive Anthony Thompson remarked that despite news of foreclosure, the center was receiving strong leasing inquiries. The company bought the mall after selling its other property, Oahus Waianae Mall, for US$25.7 million. In November 2012, the center went into foreclosure again and was purchased by Strategic Retail Trust from TNPs backers, the Central Pacific Bank. Lahaina Gateway is currently managed by The Festival Companies, according to their official website.


1.1. Background Events

Maui Gift and Craft Fair every Sunday 9–2. Several limited events and fundraisers have occurred at the shopping center since its construction. Annually, during the month of October, Lahaina Gateway hosts various events as part of their Pineapples & Pumpkins Halloween festival. The mall also hosted a classic car show that took place in March 2015. In addition, the annual Wiki Run takes place near the shopping center.


2. Design and tenants

The shopping center is designed in the image of traditional Hawaiian towns. It consists of various buildings, some of which have a "plantation style" appearance while others are more influenced by modern architecture. Furthermore, some of the structures contain stucco on their exteriors. Lahaina Gateway is anchored by a Foodland Farms grocery store that sells organic and Maui-grown foods and drinks. Other tenants at the shopping mall include womens retailer Passion 4 Fashion Boutique, the largest Barnes & Noble location in Hawaii, and Lahainas official Department of Motor Vehicles offices. Cultural center Na Lio Maui was open at the center for a limited run in 2015. Its purpose was to inform tourists and visitors about the history of horses in Hawaiian culture. The Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant, closed at Lahaina Gateway on February 24, 2013, leaving approximately 30 workers unemployed.
