Kapolei, nicknamed Oahu’s Second City, is one of the island’s fastest-growing communities. The City of Kapolei broke ground in 1990 and in just a little over two decades has seen tremendous increases in both residential and commercial properties as well as employment opportunities. At the heart of the city is the impressive three-story Kapolei Hale building. The architecture of the building reflects Honolulu’s heritage in the same vernacular approach as the Alexander & Baldwin and C. Brewer buildings of downtown Honolulu. For residents, Kapolei Hale offers the convenience of a satellite city hall, DMV office, one-stop permit office, water and property tax payments, and much more. A big boost to Kapolei’s continuing emergence as the Second City is the opening of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s new office building, making it the first federal agency to be headquartered in Kapolei. Kapolei also is home to The University of Hawaii – West Oahu which offers four-year bachelor’s degrees in liberal arts, professional studies, and applied sciences.
