LAHAINA, Hawaii -

A Maui resort condominium plans to replace an old seawall to protect the property from winter storms.

The Maui News reports the Kahana Sunset in Lahaina aims to demolish an existing 114-foot seawall.

The replacement seawall would protect the property's six buildings from the winter surf. It would increase the beach area by more than 3,300 square feet in front of the resort at the water's edge.

The state Office of Environmental Quality Control issued a finding of no significant impact as it accepted the environmental assessment for the project.

The condominium must obtain a Special Management Area permit from the Maui Planning Commission to proceed. The Maui County Council must also approve zoning changes.

The renovation work would also include a new stairway, drainage improvements and beach access.
