Royal Capitol Plaza, originally constructed in 1987, stands high at 40 stories in West Kakaako. From the outside, you’ll notice the blue and white combination of glass windows and concrete walls, creating a relaxed, yet sophisticated look. Although the building is older than some of the other developments, many of the previous and current homeowners have updated their units. The location in itself is priceless, as residents are right down the street from restaurants, shopping centers, and the beach.
In total, Royal Capitol Plaza has 299 units, a majority of which have 1 or 2 bedrooms, with one 3-bedroom penthouse unit. Sizes are pretty standard for the area, with the 1-bedrooms ranging from 582 through 743 square feet and the 2-bedrooms ranging from 869 through 1,061 square feet. Many of the 2-bedroom floorplans also include 2 bathrooms. The building is pet-friendly for cats and birds.
The floorplans at Royal Capitol Plaza align with its outward appearance—they are sleek, simple, and functional. Outdoor views are dependent on the unit’s positioning in the building. The higher the unit, the more likely you are to catch an ocean or a mountain view; however, given the recent development around the complex, views may be blocked by other buildings. Higher-level units also tend to be a bit larger and are more likely to have a walk-in closet. Royal Capitol Plaza does not feature any lanais, but most of the units have giant floor-to-ceiling windows that are able to be opened.
Since each home will have been previously occupied, there will naturally be variation among the specific unit upgrades. Each unit has the capacity for window air conditioning units, and a majority of the previous homeowners have already added these into their homes. Each unit is also equipped with washer and dryer connections and wired for high-speech Internet and cable TV access. Residents also have access to storage lockers located outside of the units.
Although Royal Capitol Plaza is one of the more seasoned buildings in the area, this charming complex keeps up with the rest when it comes to amenities. You’ll feel safe and secure with the 24/7 guard and the additional measures put into place to protect you and your loved ones, including surveillance cameras, electronic key fob entry, and the Enterphone system. This makes it easy to let guests in and to keep unwanted visitors out. Additionally, the resident garage has a gated entryway, so you’ll never have to worry about the parking lot being full.
Speaking of parking, in addition to the gated garage, there is also covered guest parking available. As you drive up to the front of the building, you’ll notice the classy porte-cochère, which is convenient for pick-ups and drop offs. The surrounding area features biking and walking trails for exploring the community.
Once inside, you’ll notice the 3 elevators available to help slow down resident wait times. The building also provides a business center and a meeting room. Residents love the recreation deck, where they can enjoy the saltwater pool, the sauna, and the jacuzzi. The outdoor kitchen and BBQ is perfect for entertaining guests, and there is also a picnic area and an outdoor lounge. Don’t forget to check out the fitness center with exercise machines and the game room, which is popular among both youths and adults. Despite having amenities similar to other complexes in the area, Royal Capitol Plaza maintains reasonable maintenance fees, so residents are getting the most out of their investments.
Locals rave about living in Kakaako. This urban oasis has been curated to fit the needs of its residents and is situated in a highly convenient location. Kakaako is between Downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. More specifically, Royal Capitol Plaza is on the western portion of Kakaako and therefore allows for easy access for commuters who work downtown. The Plaza is situated near a planned future rail station, so commuters won’t have to worry about driving to work each day. Traveling for business or for pleasure? The airport is just an 11-minute drive from the complex.
For those who would rather make their way around by bike (or even on foot), Royal Capitol Plaza’s location is as pedestrian friendly as it gets. In addition to Downtown Honolulu, residents will easily be able to reach the Ala Moana Shopping Center, Ward Center, Ward Warehouse, and Ala Moana Beach Park. The complex is situated among some of the most popular places to shop and dine in the region, and there are also frequent community events nearby.
Foodies will love what the Kakaako area has to offer, whether you’re wanting to have a fine dining experience or are just craving a hot dog with fries. There are also numerous breweries and cafes. Be sure to check out SALT at Our Kakaako, where you’ll find a variety of restaurants with foods from cultures all over the world. SALT also offers boutique shops, a fitness studio, and a salon.
The Ala Moana Center is another shopping hot spot in the area. Ala Moana is an open-air mall featuring small, local stores as well as larger chain stores. Like SALT, Ala Moana also offers a variety of dining options, including both sit-down and grab-and-go places. The Center frequently serves as a host of events and plays a great role in the community.
Behind the shopping center, you’ll find Ala Moana Beach Park, the perfect place to spend a warm day out in the sun. Walk across the white sand to reach the calm waters, which become strong enough for surfing, if you paddle out far enough! The Park also has walking paths, tennis courts, and picnic tables, making it a prime family gathering space for locals.
While Royal Capitol Plaza may not be the newest building on the block, it maintains a sleek, modern look and also offers similar amenities as the newer establishments. With the convenience of being near Downtown Honolulu and the shops and restaurants of Kakaako the location is unbeatable.
