The Howard Hughes Corporation has broken ground on ‘A'ali'i’, a mixed-use residential development at the Ward Village in Honolulu, Hawai'i, US.

The mixed-use residential development will feature 751 units with a turnkey experience and space-maximising design.

More than 765 of homes at ‘A'ali'i’ have been sold since sales began in January.

Four other towers, Waiea, Anaha, Ae'o, and Ke Kilohana, at Ward Village are either already delivered or under construction.

The 60-acre community will include nearly one million ft² of retail and food and beverage experiences, and more than 4,500 homes.

The ‘A'ali'i’ has been designed by architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz and local company Ferraro Choi& Associates, in partnership with interior designer Rottet Studios.

Located next to Ae'o and the recently opened flagship Whole Foods Market, the building will include 11,300ft² of new street-level retail and nearly an acre of recreational amenities.

The Howard Hughes CEO David Weinreb said: “We have spent years studying the most cutting-edge residential product in the world, and ‘A'ali'i’ represents our vision of an experiential lifestyle that does not currently exist in the market.

“Our robust sales across Ward Village are reflective of the growing market demand for turnkey living solutions and innovative home designs that empower residents to make the most out of their homes.”

‘A'ali'i’ combines smart design with a collection of resort-calibre amenities to maximise health, wellness and relaxation.

Amenities include Lāna'i 42, a penthouse-level sky deck, offering a rooftop fitness club, outdoor yoga studio, sunset lounge and ocean-view event spaces.

The ‘A'ali'i’ pool deck will fature an adult pool, cabanas, barbecue pavilions, indoor and outdoor event spaces, and a children’s play/splash area.

The neighbourhood provides world-class amenities, including walkable pathways and dedicated bike lanes, which will offer access to a new Central Plaza, restaurants, local retailers, and free community events.

Howard Hughes Hawaii region president Simon Treacy said: “The groundbreaking of ‘A'ali'i’ marks yet another milestone in our development of Oahu’s new pedestrian-friendly urban neighbourhood.

“We could not be more pleased with the response from homeowners who are excited to live in our innovative and diverse community that is setting a new benchmark for urban living.”
