Na Kupuna Makamae Center


PGC was awarded $1,000,000 by the State Legislature to restore and convert the state-owned historic pump station in Kaka‘ako to a resource and training center for seniors, called the Na Kūpuna Makamae Center (NKMC). In the Hawaiian language, Na Kūpuna Makamae means “The Beloved Seniors."  

“This is the most credible public purpose.” - Anthony Ching, Hawai‘i Community Development Association

The Center officially opened on September 9, 2016!


NKMC is your exclusive & premier place to hold your gathering. Whether it is a Wedding, Graduation, Business Luncheon, Fundraiser, Anniversary, Birthday, Holiday, Company Function or any other special occasion; we will accommodate your needs. Enjoy this 114-year-old historic landmark and indulge  in a serene and memorable venue to host your event.
