As Hawaii’s “first fee-simple, master planned community,” Mililani Town’s developer has closed the sale on its final home - in Island Courtyards at Mililani Mauka, a condominium development of affordable units clustered in garden-style buildings.

The purchase by Hubert and Simone Barboza (for their daughter and her family) is especially significant for Castle & Cooke Homes as it represents the final residence to be built and sold in this Central Oahu community of 16,000 homes and 50,000 residents.

Company officials recently joined with proud young couple to celebrate and turn over the keys to them.

“Forty years ago, Castle & Cooke promised a vibrant new community for Hawaii families, and we delivered on that promise,” declared president Harry Saunders. The family of four also received a gift certificate from the developer to buy furniture for their new home.

What were once vast acres of pineapple fields are now family-friendly neighborhoods making Mililani a diverse and prospering community with parks, recreation centers and commercial centers, set among wide, tree-lined streets.

Castle & Cooke also created a “micro-economy” for the area by investing more than $3.8 billion in off-site, on-site and vertical infrastructure.
