Plan for paradise at Waihonua at Kewalo, located in the heart of Honolulu. This 43-story luxury condominium development is rising quickly, with completion expected in 2015 and all units spoken for – but smart investors will be waiting in the wings to purchase those that return to the market.
Set in the Kakaako district and adjacent to the Kewalo waterfront, Waihonua means “waters of the earth” and takes its name from the original landscape, once dotted with ponds and taro fields. Today Kakaako is a community of upscale residential high-rises, boutique shops and local cafés, and bordered by downtown’s financial district, the upscale shopping and dining mecca of Ala Moana and an impressive beachfront. The entire community is on the verge of a planned growth surge and transformation into Honolulu’s premier live/work/play neighborhood, which has ensured its condos are in the greatest of demand.
Waihonua will include 341 contemporary one-, two- and three-bedroom units with custom-wood entry doors, hardwood flooring throughout, granite kitchen counters and other exclusive interior features. With the building’s glass-facade design and well-placed angle, views are guaranteed to be monumental. Waihonua’s amenities will be equally upscale, including a recreation deck with an infinity-edge swimming pool, barbecue dining pavilions, a fitness center, a club room with kitchen, a private movie theatre and two visitor guest suites.
Key attractions within walking distance from Waihonua will include:
+ 100-acre Ala Moana Beach Park, with tennis courts and a half-mile-long white-sand beach
+ Ward Centers, featuring shops, restaurants, services and a theater multiplex
+ Ala Moana Center, Hawaii’s premier mall, with more than 300 shops and restaurants
+ Neal Blaisdell Center, with a concert hall, arena and exhibition hall
+ Kaahumanu Elementary School, Central Middle School and McKinley High School
