The Launiu is a proposed development and the information shown below was pulled from Ward Village's recent HCDA permit application. The graphics and content are subject to change.
The Launiu's name was inspired by its unique location, serving as the west gateway entrance to Ward Village. "Launiu" in Hawaiian means coconut leaf, so the development's name gives a nod to coconut groves in Hawaii and what they provide - shade and serenity.
The tower's design is inspired by a mid-century coastal style architecture, using a bespoke material palette, and will feature stunning landscaping and sculptural hardscape elements, ample sidewalks, and public art. The development will also seamlessly integrate with the surrounding area incorporating pedestrian-oriented streetscapes.
Launiu at Ward Village will be developed in Land Block 5 of Pauahi neighborhood, on the ewa corner of Ward Avenue and Ala Moana Boulevard, directly next to the future Ka Lai O Kukuluaeo Park and diagonally across the street from Kalae and Ulana Ward Village. Launiu Ward Village is considered a front row condo development so it'll have clear views of the ocean and Diamond Head. The other front row condos in Ward Village are Kalae, Waiea, and Victoria Place - all luxury developments.
The Launiu will offer a suite of high-end amenities on both the ground floor and recreational deck on the 7th floor. Some of the initially proposed amenities include a fitness center, teaching studio, several multi-purpose rooms, sunset lanai, spa, catering kitchen, porte cochere, beach lawn, numerous pools and cabanas, and a dog run.
The unit mix will include 141 studios, 137 1-bedrooms, 143 2-bedrooms, and 65 3-bedrooms. Most of the studios and guest suites will be inside the Podium, while the 40-floor tower will have 4 1-bedrooms, 4 2-bedrooms, 2 studios and 2 3-bedrooms on each floor. The 2- and 3-bedroom condos will be faced towards Diamond Head and the ocean and include lanais.
No floor plans have been released yet, but you can register below to receive the latest updates. Upon approval, Launiu at Ward Village is anticipated to start construction in late 2024.
The surrounding neighborhood of Ward Village includes over 2,500 residences and 40 restaurants, cafes, and entertainment venues, along with 44 retail shops and 52 specialized neighborhood services. It truly is a planned urban coastal masterpiece designed to connect communities via public spaces.
While The Launiu will be located on the far end of Ward Village, many of the attractions like Ala Moana Shopping Center and Ala Moana Beach Park are still within walking distance. Its location is unique compared to other developments in Ward Village because it borders Our Kakaako, another master planned community with their own modern restaurants and trendy shops.
Launiu Ward Village is or will be located at 928 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu, HI 96814.
