The Howard Hughes Corporation® has officially listed the Grand Penthouse Collection in Waiea® for sale in Ward Village®, a 60-acre master planned community in the heart of Honolulu which will elevate luxury living in Hawai’i and bring a new level of architectural sophistication to the island state. Waiea is the first residential condominium tower in Ward Village, where homebuyers will begin moving later this year into the urban coastal community in the Kaka‘ako district between Waikiki and downtown. Designed by award-winning Vancouver-based architect James K. M. Cheng in collaboration with Rob Iopa and WCIT Architecture and with interiors by Tony Ingrao, Waiea boasts 175 residences, including 10 townhomes, 12 penthouses and two grand penthouses.

The five-bedroom 36th floor Grand Penthouse listed for $36 million offers more than 10,000 square feet of sophisticated interiors with the finest finishes and features throughout, including a spa-inspired master bath with a deep soaking tub, dual sinks and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. The open-concept kitchen is designed with entertainment in mind with top-of-the-line gourmet Miele appliances. The spacious living area opens outside to 1,300 square feet of lanai space, a private infinity rooftop pool and sky lanai just steps below on the 35th floor with a one-bedroom guesthouse, including a full kitchen, bar and living room. The residence also includes a separate four-car garage.

The 35th Floor Grand Penthouse offered at $35 million features 8,500 square feet of first-class design and décor with the same attention to detail and spectacular views plus an additional 2,000 of outdoor space. Additional penthouses in Waiea are located on floors 32 through 34, with residences starting from $ 4.2 million.

Waiea will feature abundant on-site amenities conducive to leading a healthy lifestyle, including a deluxe fitness center with yoga room, resort-style locker rooms with steam, sauna and treatment rooms and an infinity-edged ocean-view pool, cabanas and hot tub. Residents will also enjoy an indoor golf simulator, theater/performance room, dining rooms with catering and chef’s kitchen, quiet lounges, luxury appointed guest suites, onsite guest parking, optional valet service, children’s play area with water feature, dog park, library, ocean view bar and on-site resident manager and concierge service.  All Waiea residents will have the finest amenities at their disposal, including available room service from Nobu Honolulu, which will be located at the ground level of the prestigious building.

“The experience rendered from the Waiea Grand Penthouses will be truly unmatched. A private rooftop infinity swimming pool 400 feet in the air showcasing extraordinary 360-degree views will ignite and invigorate every sense,” said James K. M. Cheng. “Everything at this level in the building is amplified, the air is pure and the views are breathtaking. The Grand Penthouse buyer will own undoubtedly the most extraordinary condominium residence in Hawai‘i.”

Construction commenced on Waiea in May 2014, marking the beginning of Ward Village’s transformation into a vibrant community with a carefully curated mix of design, retail and cultural experiences. Two additional residential buildings are currently under construction at Ward Village and five are available for sale offering a broad range of options and lifestyles in the walkable urban master planned community. Contracted sales at the community have now exceeded 90% for the 493 homes in its first two luxury condominium towers, Waiea and Anaha®. Construction began on Ward Village’s third tower, Ae‘o, in February 2016. To date, Ward Village has contracted to sell over 1,100 homes and at full build out will deliver more than 4,000 residences and over one million square feet of retail.  

At completion, Ward Village will deliver thousands of new residences in a market where supply continues to fall short of demand for new housing. Ward Village will become Honolulu’s premier outdoor shopping district and a gathering place for Hawai‘i residents and visitors. As the largest LEED-ND Platinum certified development in the country and the only one in Hawai?i, Ward Village is at the forefront of sustainable community development and will contain public amenities at a scale that no other development in Hawai?i offers. These public amenities include a planned four-acre park in the heart of the community, new tree-lined sidewalks and bike lanes and access to the adjacent Kewalo Harbor, which is now operated by The Howard Hughes Corporation under a 35-year ground lease with the State of Hawai?i, with plans underway to upgrade the harbor’s existing infrastructure for recreational and commercial vessels alike. Kaka‘ako was recently named by Trulia as the top neighborhood with the best amenities in cities of under one million people.
