A parcel of State land at the rear separates this parcel from the Banyan Golf Course. Part of back parking area is State of Hawaii Lease Hold land, and is not included in the sale.
This site is designated Open (O) by the County Zoning Code. The existing structure and various industrial-types of uses have existed on this site prior to the adoption of the Zoning Code in 1967. The existing building and uses are therefore considered “non-conforming” as per Section 25-79 of the Zoning Code, are legal and have been ‘grandfathered in’ due to prior existence.

Utilities (county water, electric & telephone) are available to the property. The site is designated Urban by the State Land Use Commission. The property is located within the boundaries of the Special Management Area (SMA). The Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) designates this site as located within an area outside of the 500-year flood plain (Zone X).
