The Howard Hughes Corp. (NYSE: HHC) announced Monday that it had topped out Anaha, the second condominium tower to be completed within its 60-acre Ward Village master-planned community in Honolulu. Anaha is scheduled to open in summer 2017.

Ward Village has contracted to sell more than 1,100 homes to date, and more than 90 percent of the condos in Anaha are sold, the company said in a statement. The building is a collaboration by architect and design firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz, Honolulu-based Benjamin Woo Architects and global design leader Woods Bagot Interiors.

Anaha will offer 244 studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom tower residences as well as 73 low-rise flats and townhomes. Chef Peter Merriman will open the first Oahu location of his Merriman’s restaurant in summer 2017.

“The topping out of Anaha is another significant milestone as we continue to create a neighborhood at Ward Village that enriches the lives of all those who experience it,” said David R. Weinreb, CEO of Howard Hughes.

Three residential buildings are currently under construction and five are available for sale at Ward Village. Contracted sales at the community have reached approximately 90 percent for the 493 homes in its first two luxury condominium towers, Waiea and Anaha. Construction began on Ward Village’s third tower, Aeo, in February.

Waiea, which will open late this year, will include 175 residences and house a Nobu Honolulu restaurant. Work on Aeo will be completed in 2018; it will include 466 residences and a Whole Foods Market Inc. (Nasdaq: WFM) store.

When completed, Ward Village will have more than 4,000 new residences.
