Resale The Collection

The Collection

The Collection, built in 2016 in Our Kaka'ako, is now on resale.

When walking through Our Kaka’ako, one of the first features you’re likely to notice is the inclusion of street art throughout the community. In fact, Our Kaka’ako hosts the Pow Wow Art Movement, an initiative that gathers artists from around the world (including locals as well) to help create beautiful pieces of street art. This community encourages the forward movement of its residents and provides a perfect backdrop for the implementation of new, creative ideas.

A main selling factor of Our Kaka’ako is that it has been very intentionally designed for the convenience of its residents. The community is highly walkable, providing opportunities for pedestrians to explore shops and restaurants without having to get into a car. The community also promotes environmental sustainability and encourages the connection between humans and the environment by providing open-air spaces that are perfect for mingling with friends and family.

Residential Details: Something for Everyone

The master plan for Our Kaka’ako (known as Kaiaulu ‘o Kaka‘ako) was originally submitted in 2008 and approved in 2009 by the Hawaii Community Development Authority. This plan has since been amended and extended through the year 2034. The community will be developed across two increments, one of which has already been completed. By the time it is completed, Our Kaka’ako will offer a multitude of residential units. Additionally, development plans allot for plenty of open space.

Once finished, Our Kaka’ako will cover 9 city blocks. The community will offer a variety of housing types, including low-rise towers, high-rise towers, and townhomes. Furthermore, the neighborhood will be accessible to different levels of income, with opportunities to participate in the affordable housing program. High-end, luxury units will also be available as well.

Plans for Our Kaka’ako are meant to attract a diverse group of residents, from singles looking for their first place to families looking for a good area to raise children. The neighborhood provides unique shops and restaurants to explore, with plenty of beautiful pieces of art to look at on your walk around town. In total, Our Kaka’ako will cover 29 acres of land, so it is a relatively sizeable community but is also condensed in a manner that makes it easier to navigate.

Phase I: Open for Business

As noted previously, Our Kaka’ako is being developed across two phases. Phase I, which includes the first 4 of 9 blocks, has already been completed and offers 1,336 residential units. About 34% of these units (456 in all) are listed as rental units. The community is pet-friendly and provides plenty of areas for shopping and dining.

The residential units in Phase I include Keauhou Lane, The Flats at Pu'unui, Six Eighty, and The Collection. Two of these buildings (Six Eighty and The Flats) are comprised of rental units, including loft-style apartments ranging from studios to 3 bedrooms. Both buildings are pet-friendly and also include on-site laundry facilities. One of the main bonuses of living at Six Eighty is the 8,600 square feet of retail that is located on the ground floor of the building. This commercial space includes a Starbucks for your daily coffee run, an Inn for visitors, a cell phone company store, and Lanikai Juice.

The other two residential buildings in this phase (Keauhou Lane and The Collection) are both considered luxury high-rise properties. These buildings were completed in 2016 and 2017 and are both a whopping 43 stories. Both buildings also offer 1-3 bedroom townhomes and condos.

Phase 2: Under Construction

The second phase of the Our Kaka’ako development will include an additional 5 blocks of space. Like Phase I, the second phase will also include plenty of retail spaces, residential units, and community artwork. Homes in this phase will be a mixture of high-rises and low-rises.

The first two blocks to be developed as a part of Phase 2 are Kahuina and Ālia. Both buildings are anticipated to begin construction in 2023. Over half of the total Kahuina units planned (859, in all) will be listed as workforce and affordable housing properties. Ālia is planned to host 477 units, with 437 of these units being listed at market price. 40 of the units will be allocated as reserved housing units.

Also, recently announced was Kaliʻu, which will include 330 market-priced units.

Other Kaka’ako Perks

There are plenty of things to do in Our Kaka’ako, many of which may make you not want to leave the development. The Kaiaulu 'O Kaka’ako Owners Association prides itself in maintaining Kaka’ako values, including a reverence for Hawaiian culture. The Association hosts block parties, pop-up retailers, stargazing, the Honolulu Food and Wine Festival, and a Bark in the Park initiative.
