Introducing Our Proposed
Aquarium Plaza Resort
Although several years in the future, APVG and the CBO Foundation will seek to developing its proposed Aquarium Plaza Resort and Conference Center (Aquarium Plaza), a diverse, self-sustaining mixed use development featuring a 400 all suite resort hotel and Spa, 18 hole golf course, 135 residential apartments, retail village, performing arts center and 116 luxury senior living unit project. We are considering
sites on Maui, Hawaii, California and Puerto Rico for the project.
The above conceptual renderings where developed by APVG for a desired West Maui, Hawaii location to better define the features and projected construction cost estimates for its proposed development. No land there has been secured, and we have not discussed the project with anyone on Maui as of this date as our research continues. If successful in locating a site on Maui, a more detailed set of renderings will be drafted and used to obtain preliminary approvals of the project, its goals and intentions.
The Aquarium Plaza project is intended to serve both locals and visitors alike, and offer them a number of unique features and attractions not currently available in West Maui. It would be locally owned and managed by APVG as a local Maui-based company, with it's Founder/CEO residing on-site once complete. Both APVG and the CBO Foundation headquarters would
be there as well. A smaller concept without the golf course and/or coffee plantation is also under consideration.
The Aquarium Plaza Hotel will serve as the base for the developments proposed Maui SkyPod Aerial Transit System, a solar powered network being designed to transport guests and residents around the development, assuming it proves viable. Most important, the Aquarium Plaza Hotel is designed to incorporate The Sharks legacy Marissa's Reef For Heavenly Helpers aquatic memorial exhibit, consisting of a 100 foot round, by 80 foot tall saltwater aquarium. It will be free to visit and will be located in the open air entry lobby of the hotel (as seen in the conceptual elevation below).
As seen in the above rendering, a full clear tube walkway is designed to encircle the inside base of the Aquarium, to allow
locals and guests to experience the underwater beauty of Marissa's Reef. The proposed exhibit will offer five (5) rows of seating around 180 degrees of the aquarium tank, facing the sunset towards the offshore islands of Molokai and Lanai.
The Aquarium exhibit honors The Shark's first Granddaughter Marissa, born on his birthday in 1998. Sadly, at the age of seven she was swept to her death in an August 2005 flash flood in Carefree Arizona. In addition, the saltwater Aquarium will also feature over 200,000 reef fish, turtles, stingrays and other reef life each designated a SpiritFish, named after and honoring other children lost due to natural events.
No guarantee can be made that APVG will be successful in our efforts to build the Aquarium Plaza Resort or Marissa's Reef as designed on Maui. Alternate sites under consideration, include an 1,800 acre Central California coastal site designed around an estate vineyard concept, and part of a new cruise ship terminal port side tourist development APVG is considering within Puerto Rico. A decision will be secured in early 2020 as to which direction we will pursue, at which time a more defined project can be rendered.
