HONOLULU | Symphony Tower | 122m | 400ft | 45 fl | U/C



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Proposed Symphony Honolulu condo tower will be state-of-the-art green building

Quote:
March 23, 2012

With increasing congestion on Oahu resulting from our growing communities, most planners agree Kakaako is the most desirable urban place in Hawaii where people can work, live and play.

The development vision in place at the Hawaii Community Development Authority outlines policies to ensure Kakaako will become a mix of residential, commercial, industrial and other uses.

That's the goal of Oliver McMillan and JN Automotive in developing The Symphony Honolulu, a unique, energy-efficient mixed-use condominium project proposed for the corner of Kapiolani Boulevard and Ward Avenue, across the street from one of the state's premier arts venue, the Neal Blaisdell
Ewa District.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Battles over blocked views have delayed this new tower and led to design revisions. Hopefully issues with neighbors have finally been resolved so the developer can plan on a groundbreaking.

Symphony tower wins variance on orientation of new condo

POSTED: 11:36 a.m. HST, May 02, 2012
LAST UPDATED: 02:47 p.m. HST, May 02, 2012

A developer won state approval today to position a Kakaako high-rise condominium in a way that deviates from a new rule intended to preserve mauka-makai views.

The planned 400-foot Symphony Honolulu luxury condo was granted a variance from a tower orientation rule of the Hawaii Community Development Authority, the state agency governing development in Kakaako.

The rule, which became effective in November, requires that the long side of towers run parallel to the nearest of five mauka-makai streets — Punchbowl, South, Cooke, Ward and Piikoi — within an allowed 20-degree deviation.

Symphony Honolulu's developer, San Diego-based OliverMcMillan, asked to build the tower with the long side parallel to the Ewa-Diamond Head direction. The company said characteristics of its lot restricted it from the highest and best use of the site under the rule.

HCDA's board voted 10-1 to approve the variance. The $380 million project still needs a development permit from the agency, though the variance request was a controversial preliminary issue that needed to be considered first.

70% of units sold: http://sandislehawaii.com/news-and-t...onolulu-tower/

A high-rise planned for Kakaako joins others reporting robust sales of condominium units

The proposed Symphony Honolulu tower would be aligned to maximize energy efficiency and the use of photovoltaic paneling to produce renewable energy.
Strong demand for new residential high-rise condominiums continues in Hono*lulu, with a fifth project announcing good buyer response amid a wave of projects that has risen over the last year.

OliverMcMillan, developer of the planned 45-story Symphony Hono*lulu tower in Kakaako, announced that close to 70 percent, or about 200, of 288 units released for sale June 15 were sold in an initial weekend of sales.

The San Diego-based firm, which is partnering with local auto dealer JN Automotive to build the tower on the mauka-Ewa corner of Ward Avenue and Kapiolani Boulevard, said it is pleased by what it termed a “great” response. “The response to our project indicates there is a strong demand for homes in the core of Hono*lulu,” Dan Nishi*kawa, president of OliverMcMillan’s local office, said in a statement.

Symphony Honolulu units, which range from 672 to about 2,000 square feet, are priced from more than $500,000 to about $3 million. The tower will have 388 units, but 100 of those will be made available this fall under a mandated state affordable-housing program for moderate-income residents via a lottery.

Construction is supposed to start by the end of the year and finish near the end of 2015.

This area to be transformed by Symphony Tower (rising across from Blaisdell Center), Ward Centers with 22 towers, and ultimately, the redevelopment of Blaisdell with several more towers, and 690 Pohukaina.
