Also located in the building is IPC’s property team, which provides support to the nearly 733 families who reside in the Aliamanu Rim/Red Hill Community.

“Our community centers have become a gathering place for our residents. On any given day, you’ll see dozens of families connecting with each other at our tot lots and playground areas, fitness centers, swimming pools and in our multipurpose rooms where they enjoy of a multitude of free programs from cooking classes to kick-boxing,” said Tom Adams, IPC director of property management.

The Aliamanu Rim/Red Hill facility is the seventh and final community center planned in IPC’s initial development plan. To date, 4541 new homes have been constructed, 2507 existing homes renovated, and community amenities and walking trails surrounded by green open spaces have been established throughout IPC’s neighborhoods across seven Army installations on Oahu.

“Our goal was to create a community with quality homes, desirable community amenities and vibrant activities and programs that families want to be part of, and the more than 7,000 families that have chosen to make their home with us is a testament to the success of our partnership with the Army,” said Pete Sims, IPC project director.
