Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Thursday shared his vision for urban redevelopment in Kakaako, a blend of residential, commercial and recreational uses that he hopes will evolve into a national model.
As the governor was about to wrap up his luncheon address at the Plaza Club, Nancie Caraway, his wife, rushed to the podium to whisper some advice.
“And green roofs,” Abercrombie said with a chuckle. “I can assure you there will be green roofs, because when I wake up, the first thing the person on my immediate left tells me in the morning is not `Good morning, dear.’ It’s `green roofs.’ It’s what I hear.”
