The International Market Place (IMP) is located in the heart of Waikiki on the island of Oahu. Encompassing approximately 6 acres, the site was formerly the IMP, an open market, Miramar Hotel, retail, restaurants and other commercial uses. The iconic landmark underwent a major renovation to revitalize the area and create a sense of place for visitors and residents. The IMP consists of new retail, restaurants, and other commercial uses including Hawaii’s first Saks Fifth Avenue.
