Hilton Waikoloa Village--Ocean Tower Timeshare Conversion

Waikoloa, Island of Hawai‘i

Completed

Ongoing

Belt Collins provided planning and subdivision services, successfully processing the Special Management Area Assessment (SMAA) and Planned Unit Development application with the County of Hawai'i Planning Department, which included 3D modeling of a porte-cochere considered for the project. Once the entitlements were secured, the first phase of the conversion and building remodeling was undertaken. The civil engineering and landscape architecture services addressed infill of the former Palm Terrace Restaurant pond on the interior of the tower, improving access to the building and providing additional parking in the hotel lot. The site civil and landscape improvements design on the tower interior integrated with the new lobby’s architectural design, providing an event lawn space surrounded by colorful layered tropical landscaping, sculptural seating, garden lighting, tiki-torches, a fire-bowl, giant decorative planter pots by a local artist, waterfalls and ponds.

Vehicular and pedestrian access improvements around the tower included a walkway with landscape lighting and planting. The parking lot expansion converted existing tennis courts to 164-stalls with walkway, lighting and landscape improvements in compliance with the Waikoloa Resort Design Guidelines. Off-site electrical improvements for a new service to support the timeshare use were also designed and coordinated. An individual National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for storm water discharges during construction was also processed for the project. Design services for the Phase 2 tower renovation are in progress.

Conversion of the Ocean Tower at the Hilton Waikoloa Village from hotel guest rooms to timeshare units involved a lot more than just room renovations. It was a multifaceted undertaking requiring planning permits, subdivision and zoning review, along with design of improvements to the hotel grounds. Belt Collins’ planning, civil engineering and landscape design staff all contributed to successfully implementing the conversion.
