505 Front Street Shops and Restaurants

505 Front Street Shops and Restaurants was originally built in the 1970s. The small commercial center is comprised of four, freestanding, two story buildings located on a breathtaking oceanfront site just south of the Lahaina Historic District. Our initial objective was to design and construct two “sky bridges” connecting three of the structures at the upper level to allow for a new tenant to occupy multiple spaces on both levels.

As many of the spaces had been vacant for years, we undertook a major interior renovation including structural modifications, all new windows and doors, and a new passenger elevator, to make the spaces ready for the new occupant.  Acting as Architect of Record, we collaborated with the tenant’s mainland interior architect to complete tenant improvements in all four buildings totalling over 15,000 square feet. We also provided the services of our local engineering consultant team to handle plumbing, fire sprinkler, air conditioning, and electrical and design.

This was a very challenging and complicated project, which having been completed successfully adds to our growing renovation expertise.
