Innovative Residential Community in Kakaako

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Frances Nuar

I was able to attend the press conference for the new residential community planned within Kakaako yesterday, and was truly amazed by what is unfolding in “Our Kakaako” as it is fondly referred to. Kakaako is quickly becoming known for its hip eateries and entrepreneurial friendly working spaces, and this master-planned community will further transform Kakaako into a bustling urban neighborhood. I was impressed by the mix of housing types in a single project, which seems to fit right in with the redevelopment of Kakaako as a live-work community.

The project, to be called “The Collection” at 600 Ala Moana, is being developed by A&B Properties, Inc. and Kamehameha schools. It will include a 43-story high-rise tower featuring one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, a four-story mid-rise building featuring mostly studios, and town homes with individual garages and the feel of single family dwellings. The planned community will also feature new retail shops and restaurants, a mixed-use approach also seen in Kakaako in such recent projects as 909 Kapiolani and Hokua, meshing perfectly with the innovative industry, entrepreneurs, and diversity already found within Kakaako. The development neighborhood will feature landscaping and open spaces that double as outdoor living areas intended for neighbors to socialize with each other. The high-rise building, in addition to many units with ocean views, will also feature such luxury amenities as a pool, outdoor lounge, fitness center, clubroom, and even space for your canine friends to run and play.

The Collection now 80% sold:



Posted on August 19, 2013 by Kimo Smigielski

About 80 percent of the units in The Collection were snapped up during an opening sales weekend that had people lined up before dawn for first crack at the 397 apartments in A&B Properties’ 43-story condominium project in Kakaako.

Prospective buyers were out in full force on Friday morning, with the first people taking their place in line starting at 4:49 a.m., and 13 people behind them about an hour later. “It was very busy and we’re certainly pleased with the activity,” A&B Properties Senior Vice President of Development Rick Stack told PBN. “We still have a lot of good units available. We’ve still got a ways to go.” Sales for the $200 million project, to be developed on the former CompUSA site, began at 9 a.m. this past Saturday at 680 Ala Moana Blvd.

The Collection includes a high-rise tower, a mid-rise building, town homes, as well as retail shops and restaurants. Prices for the tower, which will have 397 units, range from $300,000 to $700,000 for a unit. Sales for the town homes and mid-rise projects are expected to start later this year, Stack said.

The Collection is expected to take up to 30 months to build, with the estimated construction start date at least a year away.

Alexander & Baldwin paid $23M to buy Kakaako lot from Kamehameha Schools

Alexander & Baldwin Inc.’s real estate subsidiary paid $23 million to Kamehameha Schools to purchase the three-acre former CompUSA lot in Kakaako, the site of the Honolulu-based developer’s 465-unit mixed-use The Collection condominium project, according to public records.

In October, A&B Properties Inc. said it purchased the lot, which is bounded by Ala Moana Boulevard, and Auahi, South and Keawe Streets, from Kamehameha Schools for an undisclosed price.

The $200 million project, which is made up of three residential components — The Tower’s 397 units, The Lofts @ The Collection’s 54 units and 14 urban townhomes — began construction in October at the 600 Ala Moana Blvd. site.
