A&B land operations

Land Operations

Our land operations business comprises activities conducted on our landholdings, including development projects for sale, renewable energy initiatives and diversified agriculture programs. We own approximately 87,000 acres throughout Hawaii, with large concentrations on the islands of Maui and Kauai.

We actively manage a comprehensive program of land stewardship, planning, entitlement and development. We also identify and pursue developments that enhance value from our raw land holdings, as well as acquired parcels. In addition, we make investments in real estate and other real estate related ventures and financial instruments.

We are continually seeking ways to maximize the value and utility of our considerable land holdings, consistent with prudent land stewardship and agronomic best practices.

Developments

From Dream City to The Collection, we have a strong track record of developing residential real estate that enhances the quality of life for Hawaii families.

Diversified Agriculture

We have always been a strong partner for agriculture in Hawaii. Today, we are working with farmers and ranchers to transition 36,000 acres of former sugarcane land in Central Maui to a diverse patchwork of farms and pastures.

Current projects range from energy crops and food and orchard crops to grass-finished livestock operations. We are also working with the County of Maui to establish an agricultural park to provide additional lands for small-plot farmers on Maui.

Recent Diversified Agriculture Activities

  • Livestock pastures: 4,000-acre expansion of pasture space for grass-fed beef ranching, a collaborative effort with Maui Cattle Company that will allow Maui ranchers to keep more beef in Hawaii to serve local markets
  • Feedstock: 500-acre project including corn, sorghum, and soybeans to grow feedstock to be used at the Maui County Wailuku-Kahului wastewater treatment plant
  • Energy crops: 250-acre trial by TerViva to study the viability of cultivating Pongamia as an energy crop. Pongamia, a tree that grows high yield oilseeds, could become an important source of biofuel to support the state’s renewable energy goals. The project may expand up to 2,000 acres

We are committed to being good stewards of these lands and working with the county, state, and other partners in the community to make diversified agriculture on Maui a success.
