San Diego-Based Developer OliverMcMillan Opening Hawaii Regional Office
Pacific Business News
OliverMcMillan, the San Diego-based firm developing the Symphony Honolulu condominium project, will open a Hawaii regional office in Downtown Honolulu, the head of the company’s Hawaii division told PBN.
OliverMcMillan, which purchased the Pacifica condominium (former Moana Vista condominium) in Honolulu when the project was partially completed in 2009, and then finished it at the end of 2011, is leasing about 2,400-square-feet of space on the 22nd floor of Bishop Square’s Pauahi Tower at 1003 Bishop St.
It plans to move into its new space, which was designed by MGA Architecture and built-out by J. Kadowaki Inc., in September.
Serge Krivasty, managing director of the OliverMcMillan Hawaii office, told PBN that five people will be moving into the new office, although it plans add a few more people.
“We also have, at any given time, people coming from our Mainland offices back and forth,” he said. “Right now, we [have a construction office] on Waimanu Street behind the Pacifica, [and] we wanted to stay close by the Pacifica.”
Krivasty, who has been the head of the Hawaii office for OliverMcMillan for about two years after stints at MW Group Ltd., THM Partners LLC and Niu Associates, said that the firm had been talking about establishing more permanent presence for a couple of years.
“It was just a matter of getting around to it,” he said, noting that the firm has been rather busy. “Symphony is going really well. Construction is going smoothly and sales have been going well. We’re excited about it.”
