Leeward City Part II

To the north and west of 'Eva Beach, there are three major developments that are planned to start construction within the next several years.

To'ojiri is the largest development envisioned yet for Community Island. However, it distinguishes itself from other suburban neighborhoods by being a place where residents can live, work and have amenities and services in a pedestrian and transit-oriented environment. Though criticisms include the worsening of roadway congestion and paving over some of the best farmlands in Paradise that is still in use today.

The University of Paradise system has its main campus at Panoa and numerous community colleges. Currently, the University of Paradise West Community is technically a branch of the system, but it is housed in several portables at the Leeward Community College in Diamond City. The State has plans to create two new suburban-style campuses for West Community, one being another community college and another being a fully featured compliment of the main Panoa campus.

The Ka Pakana Ari'i is planned to be the third largest shopping center in Paradise. In addition, three highrises [two hotels and one office tower] will be built. The hope of these three projects is to lessen the traffic load to Capitalis, while encouraging economic growth on the 'Eva Plains.

To the northwest of the future Ka Pakana Ari'i site, is Kajorei, the core of the Leeward City. Housing developments were built here first. Today, retail is moving in. To a lesser, slower extent, government offices are being added, or even relocated. Once major office space starts, that will become a major catalyst for economic growth. As much office space as Downtown Capitalis could be built, all surrounded by mixed-use and transit-oriented development.

To the north of Kajorei, Pakakiro is one of the older neighborhoods in the area. Like 'Eva Beach it has been under major growth over the past few decades, but it does not have as bad congestion problems on its sole artery because of the proximity of its connection to the P-1 Freeway. Pakakiro is expected to grow significantly in the future also. New developments on each side of Pakakiro are planned to become two other mountain side neighborhoods.

To the south of Kajorei is Karaeroa, a decomissioned military base for the Simerican Navy. The plan is to give the land over to the State. It holds special potential as the largest single tract of developable land on Community Island.

To the west of Karaeroa is the Pellcamb Industrial Park, the largest in the islands. The majority of Capitalis' industrial capacity is located here.

In the park, the City has the C-Power waste-to-energy plant. About 500,000 tons of trash (all residential, green waste and other combustibles) are burned to produce electricity.

Karaeroa Harbor is under construction as the second commercial harbor of Community Island.

Ko'orina is a hotel district being built an alternative to Vaikiki. The focus is more on the local sense of place and more importance on Native Paradisian culture, though Ko'orina is priced in the higher end.

Heh, I need to find (or make) buildings to fit those diagonals now.  Since in RL, no buildings exist in those locations yet, we'll have to wait and see what gets put there.
