CPB Groundbreaking For Flagship
Central Pacific Bank hosted a groundbreaking event with city officials to celebrate the start of construction for its flagship main branch at the corner of South King and Alakea streets in downtown Honolulu. The transformation aims to align private industry investment with the City and County of Honolulu in helping to revitalize downtown Honolulu. The new facility will feature an indoor-outdoor lānai, co-working spaces, and new retail space to create a downtown gathering place that generates activity and community building among CPB customers, community members, small businesses and nonprofits.
