Stoutenborough to design mixed-use community in Maui

Stoutenborough, Inc., one of the nation’s leaders in mixed-use architectural design, today announced it has signed a contract with the Krausz Companies of San Francisco for design of a 320,000 sq. ft. sustainable, mixed-use community on the island of Maui. The project, which combines residential, entertainment, restaurant and retail uses serving both residents and tourists, will constitute a new downtown for the city of Kihei.

Currently in entitlement with the County of Maui, the downtown project is scheduled for opening in the spring of 2011. It is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council, and in addition to its sustainable design, will reflect Hawaiian historical architecture. Intimate city blocks clustered around a town square provide easy access to public transportation as well as the city’s network of bicycle paths.

According to Todd Stoutenborough, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, president of Stoutenborough, Inc., “We are very pleased to be working again with the Krausz Companies on the creation of a project so central to the quality of life for the people of Maui. Krausz is always at the forefront of original thinking in design and mixed-use development. The significance of the project to the community was reflected in the standing ovation we received at last month’s presentation of the new downtown. This project demonstrates our company’s commitment to what we call ‘triple bottom line architecture’ — helping people, creating profit for our clients and preserving the planet. We’re looking forward to the next step.”
