Pacific Business News Tours Ward Warehouse Demolition

If you have driven along Ala Moana Boulevard lately, the mauka side is starting to look a lot different.  Not only is Waiea now the dominant presence, with its sweeping architecture hard to ignore, but an old, familiar landmark is now gone: Ward Warehouse.  The Howard Hughes Corporation began their demolition of the Ward Warehouse earlier this July in order to make way for its Gateway Towers development.  The redevelopment of the parcel will feature a park in between two towers, creating an improved mauka to makai connection from Kewalo Harbor to Ward Village.

Read more updates from Pacific Business News' tour of the current state of the Ware Warehouse demolitions, below. And view more photos online on Pacific Business News' website, here.

It’s a matter of weeks now before Honolulu’s Ward Warehouse becomes just a memory, as The Howard Hughes Corp. clears the land to make way for a future mixed-use tower under its Ward Village master plan.

Re-use Hawaii spent this week salvaging old-growth Douglas fir beams, fixtures and other building materials from the site, as Layton Construction worked to demolish the areas where salvaging had already taken place.

Quinn Vittum, executive director of Re-use Hawaii, said the work to salvage material from the retail and restaurant center, which closed on July 31, is taking place in two phases. The first phase, which started in August, recovered such interior items as doors, cabinets, plumbing fixtures and lights from retail stores and the Old Spaghetti Factory, Kincaid’s and Stuart Anderson’s Cattle Co. restaurants. 

The second phase is to recover the large beams and other lumber from the structure.

Vittum said the lumber is clear vertical grain Douglas fir that was milled from trees harvested in northern California or the Pacific Northwest in the mid 1970s.

Vittum said Re-use Hawaii expects to be finished in early January. After that, it’s off to salvage items from Ward Plaza, and then the warehouses across Auahi Street before they are also demolished for future phases of Ward Village

Nobu Honolulu in Waiea at Ward Village Opens Its Doors

One year ago, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa had announced that after 10 years in at the Waikiki Parc Hotel, he would be moving his Nobu Honolulu restaurant to the ground floor of Waiea at Ward Village in Kakaako.  This big announcement signaled a slow movement of the center of Honolulu from Waikiki to Kakaako. 

Nobu, which is co-owned by Chef Nobu and legendary actor Robert DeNiro, is known for its award-winning, innovative "New Style" Japanese cuisine.  Nobu Honolulu features the Chef's popular dishes, such as Black Cod Miso and Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño. 

On December 23, 2016 - just a few weeks after the first residents of Waiea moved in and just in time for the holiday season - Nobu opened its doors!  This brand-new 11,000-square-foot locatione features an outdoor bar lounge, open format kitchen, and a private Teppan Room.

The restaurant is located at 1118 Ala Moana Boulevard, Honolulu, Hawaii 96814.  Reservations are available at (808) 237-6999.

What are your favorite dishes from the restaurant?  Comment on my blog below!

Groundbreaking for Howard Hughes' Aeo Tower at Ward Village

May and I had the pleasure of being present for the groundbreaking of Ward Village's newest condo project, Aeo on February 11, 2016!  We have been following this project from the beginning, so we couldn't be more thrilled for Howard Hughes on this significant event.  This 466-unit luxury project is expected to be complete in Fall 2018.  It will also be the site of Honolulu's future flagship Whole Foods.  A full listing of the building's amenities, details on the architecture, and more can be found on our Aeo page here.

Howard Hughes will have its fourth groundbreaking, for an affordable housing project, later this year.  Keep following our blog, or contact me directly to keep updated on the exciting projects going on at Ward Village.

JTC Couple's Massage at Petwalk 2015

Team JTC with our friends at First American Title!

Team JTC with our friends at First American Title!

Find more photos on our "Community" page! Click here.

Team JTC had a wonderful time at the Hawaiian Humane Society's 2015 Petwalk! The Petwalk is one of the biggest events and fundraisers Hawaiian Humane Society has hosted yearly for the past 25 years, and takes place at Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park. The event features a walk around Magic Island, a costume contest, and a pet float parade, featuring local pet celebrities, like Hokulani. 

We were excited to spend the day at the Jack Tyrrell and Rainnee Barkhorn Charitable Foundation-sponsored "Couple's Massage" tent. Owner and pet could take a rest after the walk around Magic Island and receive luxurious massage treatments right there! We were pleased to have our favorite masseuse Barri Sarribay working on the humans, and the ladies of Massage Paw-Wow team provide pet blessings and energy to the pets, providing healing to the animals of old age or with arthritis that visited us.

A huge mahalo to our friends at First American Title for spending the morning at the tent with us, and to our wonderful friends and clients for stopping by with your pets to talk story and take part in the couple's massage!

This year's Petwalk raised more than $270,000 overall.

We were able to raise a lot of money directly benefiting the Hawaiian Humane Society's programs, and we look forward to next year's walk.
