ONE Ala Moana

Completed in late 2014, ONE Ala Moana is the ultra-luxury condominium development raising the bar for residential living in Honolulu. These condos are in fact so popular and attractive that even Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO, immediately purchased several units upon availability.

All condos feature convenient details like walk-in closets, full-sized washer and dryer appliances, and motorized window shades and ceiling fans. While the home is plenty efficient, the stylish décor also shows modern design and impressive taste, from the deep-smoked walnut plank flooring to the architectural light design. Each condo offers a gorgeous view of either the ocean or Diamond Head.

Extras like a wine tasting room, a jogging path, a yoga studio, and a golf simulation and game room are just a few of the additional amenities included. Lastly, residents sleep soundly with the building’s private access entry and 24-hour electronic security in the auto lobby, parking garage, common areas, and elevators.

ONE Ala Moana was built by MacNaughton and Kobayshi Groups, and the building itself is lined with double-paned, low-emissivity windows and meets LEED certifications. To maximize privacy, each floor houses no more than seven units.

This high-rise is set atop a parking garage adjacent to Nordstrom and an extensive outdoor shopping area. Restaurants are just steps away. Whether you are looking for pasta, seafood, or just a sandwich, the options are vast. Meanwhile, Ala Moana Park Beach is in the backyard, where residents can spend the day swimming, sunning, and picnicking. The 800-meter beach, just next to the world famous Waikiki Beach, is filled with golden sand, grassy areas, and calm water. Lifeguards, showers, lockers, restroom, and a music pavilion are also available at Ala Moana Beach Park.

A unit in this slice of paradise runs from about $500,000 to a little more than $9 million, with an average of about $1.6 million. While the cost rests on the high end, this development promises a one-of-a-kind luxury experience with a utopian lifestyle in central Honolulu.
