Sheraton Maui reopens Nov. 15

The Sheraton Maui will reopen Nov. 15 after being closed for two years while $150 million was spent on redevelopment.

Changes include a new 142-yard fresh-water swimming lagoon and new buildings repacing many structures that were demolished. Some 40 percent of the guest rooms are new and the rest have been remodeled.

A wing along the Kaanapali Beach landmark Black Rock had held guest rooms, a restaurant, shops and meeting rooms. The rebuilt wing consists of two buildings of suites and oceanfront rooms.

The hotel is owned by Kyo-Ya Co., which also owns the Sheraton Waikiki, Royal Hawaiian, Sheraton Moana Surfrider and Sheraton Princess Kaiulani in Waikiki. All are managed by ITT Sheraton Corp., a subsidiary of ITT Corp.



Maui Lani model homes completed

KAHULUI - More than 20 years after plans first were announced for the Maui Lani housing project, the first four model homes were blessed yesterday.

Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. announced the project on sand dunes between Kahului and Wailuku in July 1976, but was stalled by political maneuvering.

The land was sold and resold until purchased in 1994 by developers Bill Mills and Steve Goodfellow.

The first 12 homes are under construction in the initial 200-lot subdivision, with 25 buyers already having reserved homes.

The three- and four-bedroom homes range in size from 1,000 to 1,800 square feet and cost between $180,000 and $280,000. Lots range from 6,500 to 9,000 square feet.
