VANCOUVER, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Intrawest Corporation, one of the world’s leading destination resort and adventure-travel companies, together with its joint venture partner announced today the sale of Lot Three Ka’anapali, a 26-acre parcel of beachfront property in Maui. The parcel of land was sold to a third party for a net profit before tax to Intrawest of approximately $25 million.

“This parcel of land was not scheduled to be developed for some time and we had the opportunity to realize its value this year,” said Gary Raymond, president and chief executive officer of Intrawest Placemaking. “We will now turn our attention to the adjacent site and our Honua Kai condo-hotel project, the first whole-ownership condominium project on Ka’anapali Beach in more than 20 years.”

The joint venture partnership is developing Honua Kai, a 700-unit luxury condominium-hotel project, on Lot Four Ka’anapali. Honua Kai is a whole- ownership condominium resort that will include two luxury condo-hotel towers and three townhome clusters with ocean and mountain views, lush gardens and resort-style amenities and services. Reservations for condominium units in the first phase of development, the Hokulani tower, will be accepted in mid- October. For more information, visit www.honuakai.com.
