Yes after almost five years of planning and controversy, they're now in the process of converting 600 rooms, which is half of the total hotel rooms. They've already been doing some work over the last few months, building a model unit and offices, but they're going to close a significant portion of the Ocean tower this fall to start the conversion in earnest. I'm not sure if they've released an official expected timeline although I always take those with a grain of salt anyway. I looked around the website briefly and didn't see that they had posted any news or alert about it.

Indeed, half the Ocean Tower will be converted to Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare condo units. Though HGVC has a huge footprint in Waikoloa Beach Resorts (Kohala Suites, The Bay Club and the huge and still growing Kings Land) the demand for timeshares directly on the Oceanside has been high enough to bring this about.

Will the Ocean Tower have 2-3 bedroom units after the conversion?
