Our New Headquarters

Hawaii State FCU proudly celebrated the grand opening of its new Headquarters building at 333 Queen Street in Downtown Honolulu in June 2023. This remarkable 70,000 square-foot office building and its adjacent 80,000 square-foot parking garage have undergone extensive demolition and renovations, a journey that commenced in July 2021.

Our new Headquarters is home to over 240 employees, formerly spread across multiple office locations. This consolidation provides us with the space and resources necessary for future growth and expansion. Among its many features, the building boasts a state-of-the-art branch on the first floor, ensuring easy access to a wide range of financial services for our members in Honolulu’s downtown and civic center. The thoughtful design of our Headquarters building allows the credit union to continue to hire talented staff. It also promotes employee collaboration through innovation and technology.

We’re proud to have partnered with selected local firms, Nordic PCL Construction as our general contractor and Hiarchy as the architect responsible for the renovation.

And our new Headquarters Branch is now open to our valued members.

Fun Facts

4489 linear feet of lumber equals 3xs higher than the Pali mountains.

By donating over four-thousand linear feet of lumber to Re-Use Hawaii we were able to recover these materials for reuse and divert them from Hawaii’s landfills.

300 shelves, cabinets and fixtures equals 3.25 tons of reduced greenhouse gas emissions

By donating over 300 shelves, cabinets and fixtures, we reduced greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 3.25 tons or the equivalent of emissions from 250 cars for one day.

39000 feet of conduit to rewire every floor equals 7.5 miles from Downtown Honolulu to the airport.

To rewire every floor of our building, crews will install over 39,000 linear feet of conduit. That’s enough conduit to reach from downtown Honolulu to the airport.

100,000 pounds of steel to remodel equals 1.5 humpback whales.

To remodel our new Headquarters, crews will use over 100,000 pounds of steel. That’s about the weight of one and a half humpback whales.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our goal with the new Headquarters Building is to bring together all of our back-office staff in a single location to allow for more collaboration, operational efficiencies and provide room for future growth. The credit union has experienced significant growth in recent years and existing office space is limited. The intent of this building is to provide a location that will be a home for Hawaii State FCU for years to come.

We have the fortunate opportunity to learn real-time from the current pandemic situation and how it is impacting the way we work and interact with our members in the branches. We are taking into consideration all of the latest best practices and health & safety guidelines as we make final decisions on design flow and layout for both employee and member spaces.

Yes, our plans currently include construction of a new full-service branch location on the ground floor of our building. As details become more finalized, we will be sure to keep our members updated.

We have yet to determine any future plans for our Main Branch. We will carefully consider all factors (locations, leases, member service, etc.) before making any final decisions. The future of the Main Branch may also be determined if the 560 Halekauwila location is sold.
