Ford Island Area Development Plan, JBPHH

Historic Ford Island, currently an automobile dominated environment, was once a car-free zone. With the help of stakeholders and NAVFAC Hawaii's EV5 Cultural Resources and Historic Preservation Division, Ford Island will enhance their diverse missions and operations by creating walkable neighborhoods with safe streets. These neighborhoods will have defined parking and usable open spaces that preserve the unique history of Ford Island. Multi-functional green space and infill courtyard buildings allow for close-in training and indoctrination located within a secure and functional landscape. With the integration of water taxis, a loop transit system on the island and a proposed connection to a nearby Honolulu Area Rapid Transit (HART) stop Ford Island is a step closer to automobile independence. Over 1M square feet of buildable capacity was identified while limited demolition to less then 5,000 square feet of existing facilities.
