Word on the Coconut Wireless on Kauai’s north shore is all about the expansion and affordable housing project in the Princeville Center!
Princeville Shopping Center
The Princeville Center is one of the best (if not the best) places for shopping on the north shore of Kauai. In it you can find:
- many restaurants
- grocery store
- clothing stores
- yoga studios
- ice cream
- post office
- hardware store
- excursions companies (waiting to take you on your next adventure)
- A Hawaii Life office! 🙂
There are a lot of shops for souvenirs as well!
Kolopua at Princeville – A Great Addition to Kauai’s North Shore
For anyone that has tried to find a long term rental of any type in Princeville, or anywhere else on Kauai’s north shore, you know that we have a huge shortage! Demand for long term rentals certainly exceeds supply in Princeville.
Over the past 24 years, the County of Kaua’i Housing Agency has developed a comprehensive Housing Policy which offers incentives to developers who build much needed housing for families at lower income levels.
The Princeville Center’s affordable housing is called Kolopua at Princeville. Kolopua at Princeville will have approximately:
- 44 one, two, and three bedroom rental apartments
- 3.5 acres on the makai side (ocean side) of the Kuhio Highway
- rented to households earning less that 60% of the Kauai median income
- units will remain affordable for a minimum of 61 years
As we all know affordable housing on Kauai is scarce, and in Princeville it’s as rare as a unicorn! The development of Kolopua at Princeville will help a lot of people and families who now have either inadequate housing or are traveling a long distance between work and home. The Princeville Center expansion is a great thing for Kauai’s north shore!
