HONOLULU, HIToday, the New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District (NASED) announced that it has selected two (2) priority-listed offerors that will be considered to develop and operate the new Aloha Stadium and surrounding entertainment district as one integrated public-private partnership (P3) project. The selection and notification of the priority-listed offerors has occurred earlier than scheduled, marking the end of the qualifications phase and commencement of the proposals phase, and keeping the new Aloha Stadium on track to open for the 2028 University of Hawaiʻi football season.

“That this is moving forward ahead of schedule speaks highly of the state employees and private sector partners working to bring this project to fruition,” said Governor Josh Green, M.D. “In addition to a great new stadium, we will possibly have 4,500 housing units near the rail line and a reinvigorated community around Hālawa.”

“We were very pleased with the response to the qualifications phase of the RFP,” said Brennon Morioka, Stadium Authority chair. “The level of interest by potential bidders demonstrated the attractiveness of NASED. And the quality of the priority-listed offerors gives us confidence that the NASED project will result in not just a new stadium but a revitalized community we can all be proud of.”

The developer-led teams that were priority-listed include:

Aloha Halawa District Partners (AHDP), a consortium comprising of:

  • Development Ventures Group, Inc., Stanford Carr Development, LLC, Ameresco,
