    As I've been wandering around Ko Olina I remembered reading about a Chinese company buying up a lot of land in 2016. But I just found this article from Sept 2017 with a useful map of the acreage Oceanwide Hawaii purchased.

    Here and Here are a couple of fairly fairly recent updates on Atlantis Ko Olina. Ground breaking expected to start in 2019.

    Thanks for sharing the information and video. It appears they are planning to keep the chapel, which would be outstanding. We enjoy the look of it.

    We will be at Marriott Ko Olina next month, so look forward to the walk along the lagoons and visiting the other resorts.

    Best regards.

    A new update is found here.
    It seems that the wedding chapel next to Aulani, once thought to remain standing, has now been boarded up.
    It sounds like groundbreaking is imminent, but we've heard that before.

    Also interesting is that this article still refers to the parcel between the Beach Villas and Marriot Ko Olina as being the future home of a Ritz Carlton property, whereas everything else I read says it will be two high end resorts built by China Oceanwide Holdings.

    They are out working on the sewer line which has temporary above ground sections inside the resort. There is also a long above ground section outside the resort.

    None of the infrastructure looks anywhere near completed. I would guess that it is still months away.

    There also is a lot of infrastructure work by Kapolei Commons. They bought the whole property from Ko Olina to Kapolei Commons.
