Something in Common(s)

QLT is heavily invested in Kona Commons, the biggest shopping complex on the Big Island, with 630,000 square feet of store space. The trust is leasing 65 acres to the developers, The MacNaughton Group and The Kobayashi Group.

“As the center grows, we grow, and we get percentage rent on some of these,” Ozaki says. Phase one is open for business, with big name stores such as Petco, Sports Authority, Office Max and Target.

Coincidentally, Mullen credits Kona Commons as being Sunetric’s breakthrough project in 2008. “That’s basically our flagship,” he says. That’s where the company installed the largest rooftop photovoltaic system in the state, which produces a little more than 1 million kilowatt hours of energy a year – enough to power more than 100 homes, Mullen says.
