One of Honolulu’s most exciting luxury condominiums is Nauru Tower – a boldly modern architectural masterpiece overlooking a white-sand beach and parkland in the heart of the city. Constructed in 1990 from cast-in-place reinforced concrete, structural steel and glass, Nauru’s 44-story half-moon silhouette raised the bar for upscale residential high-rises and set a new standard in hurricane- and earthquake-resistant building design.
The building’s unique angles also provide exquisite panoramic views of the ocean, mountains or city from every one of its 304 one-, two- and three-bedroom units, which range from 940 square feet to a 3,750-square-foot penthouse suite. All come equipped with Roman travertine marble foyers and custom designed European oak veneer cabinets with built-in pantries, plus central air conditioning.
Nauru’s amenities are equally lush. Residents enjoy an expansive recreation deck with a 14,000-square-foot swimming pool and two Jacuzzi spas, plus a full-size lighted tennis court and spacious garden on the 7th floor. The building is monitored by 24-hour security guards and video surveillance system, and also features guest parking.
Nauru’s exquisite setting is yet another advantage. The neighborhood of Kakaako is one of Honolulu’s most exciting, and on the verge of a tremendous upswing in growth. More than 400 shops and restaurants are within a few blocks; the remarkable Ala Moana Beach Park is just across the street, offering more than a half-mile of sand, gentle water conditions, tennis courts and jogging trails.
