There was more to Hawaii real estate news than Mark Zuckerberg’s efforts on Kauai. So notes Pacific Business News real estate editor Janis L. Magin in this roundup of Hawaii real estate headlines in 2017.

“Real estate headlines in 2017 included plenty of investment deals, openings and closings, a substantial gift of real estate to the University of Hawaii and a fatal fire that reignited the debate over whether government should require older high-rise buildings to be retrofitted with sprinklers,” she writes. Other highlights:

  • The start of Castle & Cooke’s long-awaited Oahu subdivision
  • branding and staffing changes to local firms
  • Dunkin’ Donuts’ return to Hawaii
