The 42-story ‘A‘ali‘i condominium in the vibrant Ward Village of Kakaako is expected to welcome residents home in 2021. Future owners will enjoy a modern yet minimalist design with contemporary innovations and comfortable amenities to fit any lifestyle. Homes can come fully-furnished top-to-bottom, and will feature “smarter living” furnishings, storage, appliances, and more.
‘A‘ali‘i is the name of a steadfast indigenous shrub that once thrived in the current Ward Village area when Victoria Ward, a descendent of Hawaiian royalty (ali’i), and her family called the community home. While honoring the past and Hawaii’s natural beauty in its name, ‘A‘ali‘i’s smart design aims to exemplify the best of a modern urban lifestyle.
The building will offer 751 total units, including 272 “smart” studios, 331 one-bedrooms, and 149 two-bedrooms.
In the heart of Ward Village, adjacent to Ae‘o and Whole Foods Market®, ‘A‘ali‘i is the perfect place to live a modern Hawaii lifestyle. Ward Village is in the trendy Kaka‘ako neighborhood between downtown Honolulu and Waikīkī. The walker- and biker-friendly community will soon become even more convenient with a proposed rail station – making it a quick commute to the airport or Kapolei.
Indoor and outdoor entertainment and recreational activities abound in Ward Village. Cross the street to watch a movie at Ward Entertainment Center. Walk two blocks to snorkel or surf at Ala Moana Beach Park or Kewalo Harbor. Explore the 100+ shops, boutiques, and restaurants nearby. Or enjoy the many neighborhood events: outdoor movie nights, yoga sessions, craft fairs, festivals, and more.
The award-winning team of architects (Solomon Cordwell Buenz, Ferraro Choi and Associates Ltd.) and designers (Lauren Rottet) planned a tower to evoke an everyday, comfortable lifestyle. The home experience is embraced throughout the entire building: a spacious lobby, a gathering-friendly pool deck, a penthouse-level lounge, parking for almost every unit, and two separate elevator banks to expedite the journey to vibrant community below. 15,000 square feet of ground-level retail space will offer residents convenient shopping and dining options.
Step into a light and vibrant studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom condominium. White open-concept kitchens with Bosch appliances create a harmonious space, while built-in storage and optional turn-key furnishings provide sophistication along with convenience. Each home has its own private lānai offering fresh ocean air, and the floor-to-ceiling windows and clean design bring the outdoors in.
Along with 24/7 security and concierge service, ‘A‘ali‘i features amenities that will be an extension to owners’ homes. 400 feet above sea level, Lānai 42 includes an indoor and outdoor sky deck and ocean view event spaces for gatherings or quiet moments reading a favorite book. There is also a state-of-the-art fitness club and yoga studio. On the eighth floor, residents and friends can enjoy the Pool Deck, which features cabanas, outdoor grills, and entertainment areas. Keiki have their own separate pool and play area to safely enjoy.
