Alia - The Building

The building plans were created by Kobayashi Group, a local real estate development and investment firm. This group prides itself on being family-owned and operated and has developed other nearby luxury condos such as Park Lane Ala Moana and Hokua at 1288 Ala Moana. Alia's chosen architect is WRNS Studio, a firm led by Adam Woltag, who originated in San Francisco and recently expanded their offices to Hawaii in 2013. The landscaper is Brownie & Lee, the interior designer is The Vanguard Theory, lead by Michelle Jaime, and art curation is done by Hawaii's very own, Kelly Sueda.

The name Alia means “salt bed” and serves as an acknowledgement of the salt flats that previously covered the area. This development, the 9th in the Our Kakaako master-planned community, will be less than 400 feet tall and will feature 457 residential units.

Tower

Podium

The tower will be built with sustainable building materials and will be powered by solar and other power generation systems. Other sustainability features include weave passive ventilation, a central chilled water system, EV charging stations, bike and car share options, and more.

Where will Alia be located?

Alia will be built between Ala Moana Boulevard and Koula Street next to Ward Village. The lot is currently occupied by Autosource at 888 Ala Moana Boulevard, directly across the street from the Mazda dealership.
