Iroquois Point is a census-designated place (CDP) in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States, on the island of Oahu near Pearl Harbor. At the 2000 Census, the CDP had a total population of 2,462. However, the census statistics are no longer valid. Starting in the summer of 2003 this U.S. Navy property was leased to Hunt Building Co. and Fluor Federal Services LLC—a joint venture now operating as Ford Island Properties—in exchange for in-kind construction and infrastructure repairs on Ford Island. This unprecedented arrangement was made possible through special legislation passed by Congress in 1999. The Navy gave the developers a 65 year lease of Iroquois Point/Puʻuloa, a 34 acre (138,000 m²) parcel on Ford Island, and the 6.6 acre (27,000 m²) Hālawa Landing—all underutilized Navy properties. The developers also were allowed to purchase 695 acres (2.8 km²) of housing at Kalaeloa after three years and given outright ownership of the 515 acre (2.1 km²) former Waikele Naval Magazine (Gordon, 2005).

Built in the 1960s, the homes on the north side of Puʻuloa Lagoon were empty when renovations began in August 2003, with more than 100 tradesmen working on a daily basis, moving block by block through the housing development. Something less than half of the 1,463 homes were upgraded with an initial investment of about $20 million. Beyond that, several million dollars is to be invested for amenities, such as a community center (Gordon, 2005). Iroquois Point housing lies directly under the glideslope of runway 8L of Honolulu International Airport. Neighborhood residents are often witness to large commercial and military jets that land at the airport flying low over the area.
