Among World War II Buildings, The New Fleet Store

A design-build project with Nan, Inc., the recently completed Fleet Store and MWR Outdoor Gear Facility lies within the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark, surrounded by buildings of World War II vintage. After discussions with the State Historic Preservation Division, Mason Architects used these buildings to establish a design context for the new 23,737 s.f. building.

  • The building shares several characteristics with its World War II neighbors: concrete pilasters, smooth plastered walls, flat roofs, limited ornamentation, multi-light windows, even the same color of paint.
  • The Fleet Store contains a mini-mart, food court, barber shop, dry cleaners, and tailor shop, as well as car rental agency, travel agency, and gear rental services.
  • It has an outdoor eating area with tables and sunshades.
  • It is flanked by 125 parking stalls, ADA accessible stalls, a covered equipment wash rack, and a fenced equipment storage yard.
  • The Fleet Store is designed to receive a LEED-certified equivalent from the Navy with its highly reflective roof, insulated walls, low-wattage lighting, low-e glass windows, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and use of materials with recycled content.
