HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - New affordable housing is available in Moiliili for seniors 55 and up.

The complex is called Hale Makana O Moiliili, and it began welcoming tenants in May.

A blessing and opening ceremony officially celebrated the six-story rental housing project on Friday.

The nearly $40 million project was led by Ikenakea Development, a partnership between 3 Leaf Holdings and the Hawaiian Community Development Board.

The building includes 105 units — 80 studios and 25 one-bedroom-one bath units — that can accommodate up to three people. Depending on the unit, tenants can’t earn more than 30% to 60% of Honolulu’s median gross income.

Residents will be paying between $521 to $1,226 for monthly rent.

The state’s affordable housing finance agency had awarded the project a $13.6 million loan to support construction and permanent financing through its Rental Housing Revolving Fund.

“Our people are leaving. They will leave the islands if we can’t produce a lot of housing,” Gov. Josh Green warned at the opening ceremony. He also announced that the Department of Hawaiian Homelands has written an emergency proclamation that will invest $600 million into affordable housing initiatives.
