Honolulu’s construction industry is expected to continue to thrive. Several large projects are starting in the next year, along with a 20-mile rail project. Construction activity is particularly strong in new luxury residential buildings. “We expect this trend to shift to hotel renovation and new hotel construction in our resort areas of Waikiki and Ko Olina,” Rue says. He also anticipates more building of smaller hotels and single-family homes and a growing interest in transit-oriented development.
