Crawford Architects is working to help the state of Hawaii come up with a redevelopment plan
for Aloha Stadium.

The Kansas City-based company was hired as the master planning consultant for the proposed
project, which would utilize a public-private partnership (P3) to turn the 98-acre campus in
suburban Honolulu 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.

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 also is working on preparing an
environmental impact statement, which Jones said should be completed by the end of July

WT Partnership, one of the companies working on the team to redevelop Aloha Stadium, will
hold a “P3 industry day” next month for developers and other vendors interested in working on
the project.

Sydney-based WT Partnership, which has an office in Kansas City, is an international advisory
firm with experience in delivering P3 projects around the globe that is working with Crawford
Architects on the plan to redevelop the stadium property.

The P3 event is scheduled for noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Aloha Stadium hospitality room.

The state has allocated $350 million toward the construction of a new stadium and land
