Always an innovator, Henry built the distinctive Kaiser Dome on the hotel property. The innovative design used lightweight aluminum (another of the industrialist’s interests) and provided the resort with space for small conventions and groups.
Henry sold his interests in the Hawaiian Village in the early 1960s, but continued to undertake big development projects in the islands. He developed Hawaiʻi Kai as a residential community with 12,000 homes, shopping centers, marinas, a golf course and other municipal facilities. He also founded and developed Kaiser Permanente Hospital and KHVH radio.
Henry’s Kaiser’s imprint on Hawaiʻi remains with the buildings and developments that he created.
