New housing
Construction as seen here will break ground in a few new areas this year, including AMR's Hibiscus neighborhood and Red Hill Mauka. Families are slated to move in July 2015.

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- Construction crews soon will return, here, and make their first appearance at Helemano Military Reservation to build more new homes for Soldiers and their families.

Site work at HMR will begin in February with construction getting underway in May to develop 146 new homes.

Like many Island Palm Communities that offer views of Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor or the Waianae Mountain Range, families at HMR -- situated atop the Wahiawa Plains -- will enjoy million dollar views of Oahu's North Shore.

The final development phase of the Kalakaua Community, here, is slated to begin November, which includes building 296 homes on the South Range.

The first group of homes at HMR will be turned over, January 2013, and families will begin moving into the first new homes on the South Range, July 2013.

In IPC's south communities, construction of new homes will continue in Aliamanu Military Reservation's Rim Loop and Valley View (Phase 1) neighborhoods.

More than 30 families moved into Rim Loop this month, and 31 new homes will be delivered through the end of February.

Valley View will begin turning over the first of 101 new homes in August and is schedule to be completed in December.

Construction teams will conduct site work in February for 44 new homes in Valley View (Phase 2), and crews will begin construction of 137 new homes in AMR's Hibiscus neighborhood in May. Turnover of homes in both areas will take place in 2013.

Across the freeway in the Red Hill Mauka neighborhood, 71 new homes are planned and site work will get underway in March. Moving east to Fort Shafter, a little more than a dozen homes that were built in 1961 will be demolished in March; construction will begin next year to replace these homes, which will become available in 2014.
