Starting the new year on a strong note, Howard Hughes’ next condo development, Kō'ula, is officially on sale to the public on Saturday, January 5, 2019. We are especially excited about this development, as it is designed to integrate the natural outdoor beauty of Honolulu to the indoors. It will be the first development located along the new Victoria Ward Park. The development has already won design awards, and will likely sell fast. Units range from a studio with approximately 300 square feet to three-bedroom apartments with 1,500 square feet. Prices range from the mid-$500,000s to $2 million.

Units in another new Kakaako condominium built by the Howard Hughes Corp. are going on sale.
The Kō'ula condo tower will have 565 units and sit adjacent to the new Victoria Ward Park, where a pop-up LED flower garden now resides, on Auahi Street. The 41-story building was designed by architect Jeanne Gang and her Studio Gang.
Units range from a studio with approximately 300 square feet to three-bedroom apartments with 1,500 square feet. Prices range from the mid-$500,000s to $2 million.
It is the sixth building to be developed in Ward Village. Kō'ula will be built just Ewa of Howard Hughes’ Ae‘o condominium, which opened to residents last month and has a Whole Foods Market on the bottom floors.
Under a master plan for Ward Village, Hughes Corp. envisions building 16 towers and 1 million square feet of retail on its 60-acre property.
“The quality is really high, and the design, I think, integrates really well with Hawaii,” said Bonnie Wedemeyer, vice president of sales for the Howard Hughes. “We’re bringing the best designers together.”
Interior designs, created by Yabu Pushelberg, are more neutral colors to give the homes a more “organic, earthy feeling,” Wedemeyer said.
“We wanted to make sure the project brought the outdoors in,” said Wedemeyer.
The design of Kō'ula , which means red sugar cane, allows each unit to curve toward the ocean.
“Studio Gang actually tilted the homes towards the ocean, so they will be bent towards the ocean,” Wedemeyer said. “And when they do that it creates this really nice view and a more natural light.”
The condos can be purchased fully furnished. Amenities include a swimming pool, children’s playroom, spa, fitness club, event spacing and cabanas.
A sales office will open Saturday, but Wedemeyer said early sales have been “robust.”
Kō'ula, a name given by Sig Zane Designs, will be the first building to sit on the 1.5-acre Victoria Ward Park.
Groundbreaking for the new building is slated to take place sometime later this year.
