Honolulu’s New Urban City
Kaka’ako-Ala Moana area has dramatically transformed as New Urban City in Honolulu these past few years. The landscape has been changed by seven new completed residential towers bringing more than 2,000 units into the neighborhood with two more towers to be completed around the beginning and middle of 2019. These development controls and dictate by the two major landowners -Kamehameha Schools and Howard Hughes Corporation.
Korean developer Sam Koo kicked things off in this neighborhood in 2016 with his one, Kapiolani Residence. The project had both affordable and market housing units which sold out in a matter of months. This demonstrated to developers that the Ala Moana area is a highly desirable neighborhood and people are in the vision to buy these projects despite it not being in the more newly developed Kaka’ako neighborhood.
Mountain side of Ala Moana area
Over the next few years, we could see as many as six or seven new high-rises come up in the Ala Moana area. From affordable rental project to luxury condo-hotels, variety of selection for everyone. While close in distance, the Ala Moana neighborhood feels little different from Kakaa’ko’s vibe because it’s already a mature community and with new projects will come a different mix and vibe at street level. These new projects will refresh the neighborhood bringing new commercial spaces and attracting new businesses and restaurants to the area. It makes whole Ala Moana-Kaka’ako area looks new community.
