UPDATES

- Ward Village has released Launiu's official website here.
- Launiu received national attention from various media outlets, including Haven Lifestyles, Archello, and designboom.

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.

Launiu's architect is Arquitectonica where interior design will be done by ODADA and the landscaping by VITA Planning & Landscape Architecture. This will be Arquitectonica's first development project in Hawaii.

The tower's design draws clear inspiration from the mid-century coastal architecture found on the Gold Coast of Waikiki. It boasts a bespoke material palette, lush landscaping, sculptural hardscape elements, ample sidewalks, and public art. The development will also seamlessly integrate with the surrounding area incorporating pedestrian-oriented streetscapes. The lanais extend out in a curvy wave-like fashion giving the building a distinct shape when viewing it from afar.

Where will Launiu Ward Village be located?

Launiu at Ward Village will be developed in Land Block 5 of the 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, however, it's not directly across the street from the beach - it's more diagonally across from Kewalo Harbor.

Launiu's location is at the west end of Ward Village. You see Kalae, Victoria Place, and Waiea behind Launiu.

The 7th-floor amenity deck will include a resort pool, fitness pool, tide pool, spa, a great lawn, breezeway, and a sunset deck and palm deck where residents will enjoy clear views of Diamond Head, sunsets, and the surf.
