Kisco Senior Living starts construction of senior living project in Kapolei

Kisco Senior Living and general contractor Kiewit have started construction on the $30 million three-story Ilima at Leihano senior living community in Kapolei.

The 84-unit assisted-living and memory-care facility is being built within the first 20 acres of an eventual 40-acre community in the City of Kapolei. It was designed by Group 70 International and will be a rental building with no entrance fees.

“The City of Kapolei provides an accessible, centrally-located setting for a community like Ilima at Leihano,” Mitch Brown, chief development officer for Kisco Senior Living, said in a statement. “As a pedestrian-oriented city, roads are safe to cross and important services are within walking distance.”

California-based Kisco purchased a total of 40 acres of land from the James Campbell Co. for the Ilima at Leihano project, which has been seven years in the making. The business mixed-use zoning allows for residential and commercial uses. First Hawaiian Bank and C.S. Wo & Sons have already purchased parcels from Kisco.
