“Over the years, ValueRock Realty Partners has been engaged in ownership and management of key Hawaii properties. We are pleased to have the opportunity to expand our presence here by adding Hawaii Kai Towne Center, a quality, mixed-use asset, to our portfolio,” said David Lee, Founder and Chairman of ValueRock Realty Partners.
