A&B Properties Hawaii, LLC, Series T is the manager of Kamalani Ventures LLC and is part of the Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. (A&B) family of companies. Our roots as a kamaaina company growing sugarcane trace back to 1870. Transportation and real estate endeavors followed, and today we are a multi-market, multi-faceted company focused on growing our integrated businesses. Our real estate arm A&B Properties, Inc. embraces the creation of communities that reflect our island heritage, yet blend with contemporary Hawaii. Once limited to historical landholdings on Maui, our development and investment activities have expanded from Maui to Kauai, Hawaii Island, and Oahu. Through our real estate activities, we have enabled generations of Hawaii families to enjoy the benefits and security of fee simple home ownership.
A&B has a long and proud history of providing housing for the people of Maui. In fact, the origin of A&B’s real estate development activities dates back to 1947 when Frank and Harry Baldwin, sons of A&B co-founder Henry P. Baldwin fulfilled a dream of providing sugar plantation and railroad employees the opportunity to own their own homes at reasonable prices.
In 1950, after three years of planning, the first house-and-lot package was sold in “Dream City,” a community in Kahului. By 1985, A&B had developed 14 housing increments in Dream City and sold more than 3,200 homes/lots to Maui residents, including 2,000 to employees and retirees of HC&S and A&B.
Since then, A&B has continued to provide homes for Maui’s residents, as well as dining, shopping and recreational amenities, business activities, entertainment and other contributions that enable a contemporary island lifestyle.
