Built in 1993, Waikiki Landmark became an iconic Honolulu high-rise the moment it was completed. Its distinctive design and location at the western edge of the district almost give the impression of an entrance arch, and its modern architecture set the tone for Waikiki’s modern transformation. The Landmark still stands out as the most impressive of Honolulu’s residential towers.
Live at the Landmark, and everything is within walking distance. The building is set on famed Kalakaua Avenue, only three blocks west from Waikiki’s “Luxury Row” shopping, with Gucci, Tiffany, Coach, Chanel and other top names. A block further east, and additional luxury brands intersperse with a festive mix of national and local shops and restaurants. Waikiki Beach and Fort DeRussy Beach are both only a couple of blocks south, just beyond a peaceful tree-filled park.
Uniquely modeled in aqua reflective glass and pink granite, the 35-story Landmark features 217 apartments, with commercial space on the first several floors. Five levels of parking for both residents and visitors open onto the towers, which offer incredible views across the Ala Wai Canal onto the mountain range and ocean to the north and southwest, and of the ocean and Diamond Head to the south, southeast and east.
Units include studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom units, plus penthouse suites. All feature balconies and air conditioning. Seven studios are available at 613 square feet. One-bedroom, one-bath units range between 875 and 890 square feet; two-bedroom, two-bath units range between 1,123 and 1,507 square feet; and two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath units range between 1,318 and 1,534 square feet. Three-bedroom penthouses are 4,885 square feet and four-bedroom penthouses are 2,170 to 4,607 square feet.
Amenities equal the grandeur of the building, with the entire parking area topped by a massive and winding swimming pool with waterfalls, two spas and an extensive sundeck area. The security system is state-of-the-art, and private guards are also onsite. Cats and small dogs are welcome.
