Food trucks, dining area being added to high-profile Waikiki property

A plan to add food trucks to a parcel of land in the middle of Waikiki is moving ahead, according to public documents filed Wednesday.
Waikiki Pride LLC, which owns the property at 2460 Kuhio Ave., filed a building permit with the City and County of Honolulu's Department of Planning and Permitting to place a food truck and 10 picnic tables on new astro turf on that lot.
Iosepa Electric and General Contracting is listed as the contractor for the project, which would join another food truck project in the state's tourism mecca.
The 4,531-square-foot property is located at the corner of Kuhio Avenue and Kapuni Street and one block from the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel. The property currently has a 1928 redwood plantation home on it and is zoned for commercial activities.
The property sticks out like a sore thumb in the midst of high-rise hotel towers including the Hilton Garden Inn.
