The Howard Hughes has unveiled its plans for ‘A’ali’i, a new residential tower to be built at Ward Village in Honolulu, Hawaii.
‘A’ali’i will offer a design-conscious, turnkey luxury living solution, the first of its kind in Hawaii.
‘A’ali’i has been designed to offer innovative, environmentally-minded, space-maximising design along with luxury resort-style amenities.
The homes will be curated with turnkey packages featuring Bosch appliances, an array of high-quality accessories ranging from cookware to complete bedding and bath, and ‘smart’ furniture custom-made for each home.
‘A’ali’i will feature 751 homes, with a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom residences.
Architectural firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz, in partnership with interior architect Lauren Rottet of Rottet Studio, has designed the building.
The studio residences are designed for maximum flexibility and versatility and will feature tailor-made furniture, including a Smart Wall with a retractable sofa bed and desk.
All tower residences will have a private lāna'i with ocean and mountain views.
The smart-living concepts include resort-calibre amenities for health, wellness, and relaxation, such as Lāna'i 42, a penthouse-level sky deck with a rooftop fitness club, adult pool, cabanas, barbecue pavilions, indoor/outdoor event spaces and a children’s play/splash area.
Located adjacent to Hawaii’s Whole Foods Market that will open in 2018, ‘A’ali’i is in close proximity to Ala Moana Beach Park and the future Central Plaza, which will be Ward Village’s public park as well as centre for events, open-air shopping, and dining.
Work on ‘A’ali’i is expected to begin later in 2018.
The Howard Hughes CEO David Weinreb said: “Our vision for ‘A’ali’i represents the culmination of several years studying the most cutting-edge residential product around the world in order to create an innovative type of home that does not exist in the market.
“We are rethinking how space is used and empowering our residents to get the most out of their home, offering a move-in ready home and experiential lifestyle.”
Ward Village community development vice-president Todd Apo said: “At Ward Village, we are singularly focused on developing a community that will be benchmarked against the most vibrant and sought-after master plans in the world.
“‘A’ali’i residents will get to experience the best shopping, dining, art and culture scene that Honolulu has to offer.”
