Built around a 160-year-old banyan tree on the site of a long-time tourist market, the new International Market Place features Hawaii’s first Saks Fifth Avenue and creates an upscale dining and shopping attraction. JPRA served as Architect of Record, working closely with design architects 505Design to implement designs inspired by and faithful to the legacy traditions of Hawaii.
In the time since breaking ground on March 3, 2014, the 345,000 sq ft, three-level outdoor shopping center has emerged in the heart of Waikiki’s shopping and high-end hotel district. The 700-space parking structure provides coveted parking space and accessibility rare in the tight urban setting.
Part of IMP’s revenue will be donated to the Queen’s Medical Center, Robert Taubman, president and CEO, said "We are very proud that this great project has been re-imagined and revitalized, and will continue in perpetuity to provide that kind of support into the medical needs of the community."
