 オアフ島ダウンタウンのアロハタワー・マーケットプレイスの再開発を行っているHPU(ハワイパシフィック大学)が7日(金)、マーケットプレイス内で営業を行っている17の店舗に立ち退き要請を行ったことが明らかになった。マーケットプレイス内で営業を行っている17の店舗は、3月17日までにマーケットプレイス内から立ち退く必要がある。 今回立ち退き要請を受けた関係者のひとりは「HPUからの立ち退き要請はあまりに唐突で、40日間で新しいロケーションを探すのはとても厳しいです」とコメント。一方HPU側は、現在営業を行っているテナントとは月ごとのリース契約を結んでおり、立ち退きが行われることは知っていたはずだとしている。 HPUでは、マーケットプレイスの敷地内に教室や寮などを建設する再開発計画を進めており、2015年までには計画を完了したいとしている。なお、マーケットプレイスで営業を行っているザ・キャブ、ゴードン・ビアーシュ、フーターズ、そしてスター・オブ・ホノルルの4店舗は、今後も継続して営業を行うことが決定している。
