A variety of new companies are establishing or deepening their roots in Kalaeloa, adding to the wide array of convenient services currently available to the community.
In April, Hunt and the Navy signed a new lease to ensure that the NEX Touch ‘N Go in Kalaeloa will serve active duty and retired members of the military community for the long-term.
Hunt has long considered the Touch ‘N Go to be a critical community service for those in the area who serve and have served, alongside other tenants including the Warrior Ohana Medical Home, a U.S. Army primary-care clinic serving soldiers on the west side of Oahu.
The new long-term lease includes the 9,100-square-foot full-service gas station and mini-mart on Saratoga Avenue, as well as the NEX Barber Shop and the Subway. The Navy plans a refresh of the internal and external elements of the property to provide an updated, safe and welcoming experience for all.
“The NEX Touch ‘N Go has been an important service for active duty military, retirees and their dependents in the West Oahu community for many years,” explains Steve Colón, President, Hawaii Division, Hunt Development Group. “We consider it a valuable tenant and a critical amenity as Kalaeloa continues to evolve in the future.”
Advanced Psychiatric Therapeutics is now offering comprehensive adult and child psychiatry and psychology therapies in its new location in the Kalaeloa Professional Center (KPC). Services – either in-person or via telemedicine – include talk therapy and pharmacogenomics.
In addition, a wide array of new tenants will open in KPC over the coming weeks. These include DTRIC Insurance, property management company Ola Properties and Universal Choice, which offers outsourced human resource services. And existing Hunt tenant U.S. Vets is opening an office space in KPC to better serve its clients.
In August, Five Star Transportation will move into the former K1 Speed location, as well as the building that once housed the Naval Air Station Barbers Point furniture store – a total of some 65,000 square feet of space. The company is a Hawaii leader in trucking, logistics, distribution and fulfillment.
