WT Partnership, one of the companies working on the team to redevelop Hawaii’s Aloha
Stadium under a public-private partnership is holding a “P3 industry day” next month for
developers and other vendors interested in working on the project to turn the 98-acre campus
into a sports and entertainment complex.

The New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District project would add hotel, retail, office and
residential uses, as well as a scaled-down stadium.

WT Partnership is an international advisory firm with experience in delivering P3 projects around
the globe that is working with Kansas City-based Crawford Architects, the master planning
consultant hired by the state of Hawaii, on the plan to redevelop the stadium property through a
public-private partnership.

Stacey Jones, owner and senior principal of Crawford Architects, recently told the Honolulu
Star-Advertiser that the firm aims to issue a request for qualifications for developers by the end
of October, with the responses due in late November. Crawford is also working on preparing an
environmental impact statement, which Jones told the newspaper should be completed by the
end of July 2020.

WT Partnership’s P3 event is on Oct. 3, from Noon-3 p.m. at the Aloha Stadium hospitality
