An ultra-luxury condo tower in Ward Village along Ala Moana Blvd. is set for construction:

Penthouse in Howard Hughes’ Ward project in Honolulu priced at record $50M



December 12 2013

A penthouse with its own swimming pool in one of The Howard Hughes’s Corp.’s planned luxury condominiums in Honolulu’s Kakaako neighborhood is priced at $50 million — a record for the highest asking price ever for a new condominium unit in Hawaii, according to a Honolulu Realtor.

Jaymes Song, a Realtor-associate for Prudential Advantage Realty who was among some 50 guests invited to a sneak peek of the new tower in the Ward Village project Wednesday evening, told PBN that the new “Waiea” ultra-luxury condo planned for the surface parking lot along Ala Moana Boulevard, across from Ward Stadium 16 Theatres, is the new level of luxury in Hawaii. “It’s a cut above the rest,” he said. The building will include about 170 market-rate one-, two- and three-bedroom units, as well as 10 townhomes. The $50 million price tag for the penthouse is far above asking prices for other luxury units currently under development.

Some units at the 37-story Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach condo-hotel are priced as high as $15 million. Meantime, penthouse suites at the 23-story, 206-unit One Ala Moana ultra-luxury condominium that’s being built atop the parking garage of Nordstrom’s Ala Moana Center store, were priced as high as $10 million.

The other Ward Village tower, being called “Anaha,” located at the northeast corner of Auahi and Kamakee streets at the former Pier 1 Imports location, is expected to be in the luxury range, commanding up to $1,400 a square foot. It will include about 310 one-, two- and three-bedroom units, with 82 apartments and townhomes. Sales for both towers are expected to begin in late January for the general public. A third tower, which will be 38 stories high and will include 424 affordable units at the site of the old Kanpai Bar and Grill on Ward Avenue, also is in the works.

Howard Hughes Corp. breaks ground on Waiea condo tower in Honolulu



Howard Hughes Corp. President and CEO David Weinreb was joined by Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie and Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell Saturday for the groundbreaking on the Waiea condominium tower at Ward Village in Kakaako Saturday morning, with the governor saying that the massive residential, commercial and retail community will be like nothing Hawaii has seen before.

“Respect the past, but live in the present in order to create the future,” Abercrombie said to an audience of dozens that included future residents of the tower. He said the Ward Village represents a collaboration among political, economic and social circles that has never before existed in Hawaii.

If things go according to plan, that future includes two luxury towers— Waiea and Anaha — that will be built by the Howard Hughes Corp. and are geared toward higher-level income residents, as well as other, more affordable condominium towers that will eventually be built. Whole Foods Market (NYSE: WFM) recently announced that it will open a 50,000-square-foot store in Ward Village.

Wavy Waiea coming soon!

Howard Hughes Corp.’s second Honolulu luxury tower to start construction in coming months


Waiea

July 12, 2014 by 808brokers

The Howard Hughes Corp. is preparing to start construction in the coming months on its second luxury Honolulu condominium tower called Anaha that is planned for the former Pier 1 Imports location in Kakaako, the senior vice president for the Texas-based firm’s Hawaii operations told PBN.

The Howard Hughes Corp. (NYSE: HHC) said in its first quarter earnings report in March that it had pre-sold 54 percent of the project, which includes 311 units.

“Over the last few months, sales have continued to progress,” Howard Hughes Corp.’s Senior Vice President for Hawaii David Striph told PBN via email.

Last month, the developer broke ground on its Waiea luxury condo tower on a former surface parking lot fronting Ala Moana Boulevard, diagonally across from the Anaha site.

Both towers are part of the developer’s first phase of its Ward Village master plan.

Howard Hughes Corp. Secures $600 Million Loan to Build Honolulu High-Rises

The Howard Hughes Corporation has secured a $600 million non-recourse construction loan from Blackstone Real Estate Debt Strategies for the development of Waiea and Anaha, the first two condominium towers at Ward Village. The financing was arranged by Randy Fleisher with the Dallas Capital Markets group of JLL.

Ward Village is a 60-acre urban master planned community located in the heart of Honolulu between the city’s downtown and Waikiki. Plans call for over 4,000 high-rise residences and more than one million square feet of retail space surrounded by outdoor public gathering places and pedestrian friendly streets. The neighborhood will be anchored by a four-acre public park that will serve as a multipurpose gathering space in Honolulu where residents and visitors will convene, socialize and enjoy community events.

“Our vision for Ward Village is to create the premier master planned community in Hawai’i offering an unrivaled vibrant urban lifestyle in the heart of Honolulu,” said Grant Herlitz, President of The Howard Hughes Corporation. “The closing of this loan marks another important milestone as we create the quintessential 21st century neighborhood.”

Waiea, which means “Water of Life” in the Hawaiian language, was designed by internationally recognized, Vancouver-based architect, James K.M. Cheng, in collaboration with Honolulu-based firm WCIT Architecture. The tower offers the largest and most sophisticated condominium residences in Hawai’i and will be comprised of 171 residences and approximately 8,000 square feet of new retail space. Construction commenced in June 2014 with completion projected in late 2016.
