‘Akoko is a neighborhood within the Ho‘opili community that offers 1-3 bedroom, 1-2.5 bathroom flats and townhomes. Floor plans are diverse to meet the needs of different family sizes, with units ranging from 749 square feet through 1,519 square feet. Some of the units are single-level, while others are split-level. Most of the homes include 2 parking stalls for resident vehicles, though the neighborhood is so walkable, it’s unlikely you’ll need to use a car for your day-to-day activities!
The more specific features of ‘Akoko homes are determined by the particular unit and floor plan. Some of the initial sales were completed under the affordable housing program and may not have as many upgrades and embellishments as other homes within the neighborhood. Features that are common throughout the community include vinyl plank and carpet flooring and stainless steel sinks and kitchen appliances. Units tend to come with pre-installed blinds and are also pre-wired for ceiling fans. Master bedroom units include walk-in closets and dual vanity sinks with Moen plumbing fixtures.
‘Akoko is Ho‘opili’s second townhome release and was completed in 2019, and some of these units are now becoming available for resale. Prices currently range from around $359,000 through $630,000. This variation is dependent on factors such as the size of the home and any upgraded features that have been included.
The Ho‘opili development is intentionally designed to promote community and convenience. Developed by D.R. Horton Hawaii, Ho‘opili offers modern, open-concept floorplans with a variety of styles of home, including townhomes, condominiums, single-family homes, and flex-homes that can be utilized by entrepreneurs looking for a mixed commercial and residential space. In total, Ho‘opili covers around 1,287 acres of land and will provide over 11,000 homes to the Kapolei and Ewa Beach regions. The development also serves as a connector between Honolulu and West O'ahu.
One of the foundational features of the Ho‘opili development is its ease of accessibility. The idea is to have basically everything you could need within walking or biking distance, including schools, parks, restaurants, and grocery stores. In fact, Ho‘opili has plans for 3 large community parks (Gateway Park, Pearl Park, and SOHO Park) as well as neighborhood parks that are close to the individual neighborhoods. There are also plans for the development of 5 schools (3 elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school). Neighborhood residents have access to recreational facilities, with opportunities to work out in the gym or take a swim in the pool.
Ideally, residents will be able to walk or bike to school or work and spend less time on their daily commute. With extra-wide sidewalks and pathways specifically made for walking and biking, the community is very pedestrian friendly. For those who need to commute a longer distance, Ho‘opili will have its own rail station with an additional 2 rail stations nearby. Additionally, there are bus stops inside the community. Residents who prefer to drive to work will enjoy easy access to the H1 freeway. Drivers won’t have to worry about parking at ‘Akoko, as every unit includes at least 1 parking stall, and some units also come with enclosed garages.
Another quality of the Ho‘opili community is sustainability of the environment. Development plans include beautiful landscaping, with fruit-bearing trees so that landscaping can be made useful beyond aesthetic appeal. The community also provides access to urban gardens and to seasonal farmers’ markets so that residents will have the opportunity to support local vendors and enjoy fresh foods. Many Ho‘opili homes also feature energy-saving smart home features to help cut down on costs and reduce environmental impact.
The ‘Akoko neighborhood is conveniently close to countless attractions that are suitable for singles and larger families. As mentioned previously, the Ho‘opili community strives to include areas of recreation within walking and biking distance, so residents may not even need to leave the neighborhood at all.
For example, the KROC center, which is within the Ho‘opili development, offers a fitness and aquatics center that is available to all residents. You may also want to take advantage of the pre-school and after-school programs available to keep kids engaged outside of their regular school hours. Additionally, the KROC center provides educational courses that may be of interest to adults.
Outdoor recreational activities are popular throughout Hawaii, and ‘Akoko is situated in a location that allows for easy travel to common attractions, such as the White Plains Surfing Beach, in addition to other beaches. The development is also near walking/hiking paths with beautiful waterfalls. For those who prefer more organized sports, there are 10 golf courses within 8 miles of Ho‘opili, and there are also 4J soccer fields within the development at the SOHO community center. This center also includes a pool and a playground that can be utilized by residents.
For those who love to shop, ‘Akoko is located near the Ka Makana Ali'i Shopping Mall, the Center for West O'ahu, where you’ll find numerous stores and restaurants to explore. Residents love to visit the luxe movie theater and the seasonal farmers’ markets. Other nearby areas of interest (especially for the kids) include an indoor kart racing track, a roller rink, and a trampoline park. With all of the attractions located near (or even within) Ho‘opili, it’s hard to run out of sources of entertainment.
