HONOLULU – DeBartolo Development announced today that H&M, one of the world’s largest fashion retailers, will open its second store in Hawaii at Ka Makana Alii, the 1.4 million-square-foot regional mall being built in West Oahu.

The Swedish-based clothing chain, known for providing the latest styles at affordable prices, will open a two-story, 26,000-square-foot store at Ka Makana Alii. The retailer will offer women’s, men’s, teen and children’s apparel, as well as footwear and accessories. Ka Makana Alii will be the second store location for H&M in Hawaii, following the opening of its Waikiki store last March.

“The addition of a globally recognized retailer like H&M to Ka Makana Alii’s growing portfolio of tenants is a testament to the strong demand in West Oahu for first-rate shopping, dining and entertainment options,” said Edward Kobel, president and chief operating officer of DeBartolo Development. “H&M will provide easy access to contemporary fashion for area families, who will enjoy the convenience of having such a sought-after brand just minutes away.”

Ka Makana Alii is breaking ground later this year, with the first phase of the mall, including H&M, scheduled to open in 2016. Last month, DeBartolo Development announced that Macy’s will anchor Ka Makana Alii.

In all, Ka Makana Alii will feature more than 100 shopping, dining and entertainment offerings, two hotels and LEED-certified office space. The project will be the first shopping center to be built on Oahu in more than three decades and the only regional mall being developed in West Oahu with department and specialty stores.

Centrally located in West Oahu at the intersection of Kapolei and Kualakai Parkways, Ka Makana Alii will offer residents and visitors a family-friendly, mixed-use center in the heart of Hawaii’s fastest growing region. The open-air center will offer excellent highway access, ample parking and access to public transportation for shoppers.

Ka Makana Alii is the first mixed-use development in Hawaii by DeBartolo Development. The project is expected to provide more than 4,000 construction jobs and 8,000 direct and indirect jobs when fully open.
