New homes at Radar Hill, Rim Loop to open in summer
Radar Hill is just one of many military family housing areas in Island Palm Communities that will see new construction and renovation projects get underway.

SHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- Nearly 200 homes within Island Palm Communities will be completed during the next three months, just in time for the summer’s permanent change of station, or PCS, season.

“Summer is peak season at nearly every Army installation, and at (IPC), we’re expecting more than 1,100 families to move to Oahu,” said Mark Frey, project director, IPC.

“Both our construction and renovation teams continue to keep pace with a fairly aggressive building schedule, and (they) have delivered nearly 3,500 new and renovated homes, beautifully-planned communities, amenities and services that families are truly enjoying,” Frey added.

“We’ve been in business for more than six years, and we know families across the Army must be hearing good things about us based on the amount of calls, emails and inquiries we’re receiving on our Facebook page,” said Tom Adams, director, Property Management, IPC. “Hawaii’s a long way from home, but once they get here, see their new neighborhood and settle into their home " and we see that smile " we know IPC is becoming a very desirable community.”

The Radar Hill neighborhood, sitting above Fort Shafter and touting gorgeous views, will wrap up this summer with the completion of 59 homes during the next two months.

In August, the first new homes at Fort Shafter’s Hauoli Heights will be completed.

Just across the freeway, an entire neighborhood, known as Funston, will be completed, offering more than 60 families a beautiful place to live.

At Aliamanu Crater, the Rim Loop neighborhood will get its first homes in July, and a total of 162 will be completed through December.
