Kai is McCloskey and Company's sole development project on Kaua`i.
Originally silent investors, Tom and Bonnie McCloskey became active project
managers in 2001. Since then, they have finalized the project's overall
plan in accordance with Kauai's General Plan Update. A secluded and private
oceanfront parcel encompassing 300 acres, Kealia Kai offers 35 lots.
Kealia Walking and Bike Path
McCloskeys donated a 60-acre beachfront parcel below Kealia Kai valued
at $7.5 million to the County of Kaua`i, which enabled the County to obtain
a $25 million grant to improve the cane haul road and provide a 2.5 mile
walking and bike path for the community. Kealia Kai offers a public parking
area and a landscaped pathway to Kuna Beach.
McCloskey and Company employs
30 people on Kaua`i and 20 on the mainland. The majority of the company's
Kaua`i employees are former sugar plantation workers.
