The Collection

collection3The Collection is a delightfully unique community in its artistic layout and design. The development is comprised of three distinct residences including a 43-story tower, a four-story mid-rise, and several one-of-a-kind urban townhomes with one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts.

The tower houses 397 units while the mid-rise has 59 apartments and 16 townhomes trail around the block. In the middle of the community is a seven-level parking garage surrounded by shops, which creates a homey neighborhood vibe.

The condo tower is sleek and attractive with blue-tinted windows and aluminum-covered floor plates. The contemporary design blends beautifully with Hawaii’s open blue sky and adds sophistication to the skyline. Inside, residents will first find a 24-hour secured lobby on street level. In addition to a security guard station and the resident manager’s office, there is also an E-Lounge with 24 guest stalls and three loading stalls.

More exciting amenities are found throughout the community. On the seventh floor, residents enjoy access to the recreation deck’s lap pool, kiddie pool, and hot tubs. Elsewhere, you will find the perfect picnicking spot with barbeque dining pavilions and a children’s play area. For events, rent the party room with an attached kitchen, or watch a film at the outdoor movie theater. Finally, if you are looking to get fit and look good on the beach, head to the fitness center with modern exercise equipment and a yoga room. Extra storage is available for bikes and surfboards.

The units themselves are decked out with state-of-the-art and contemporary features. The Collection keeps green living in mind and provides Energy Star appliances, LED lighting, and split AC systems. Recycled materials were also used in creating many of the fixtures.

Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for spectacular views of the ocean, the harbor, and Diamond Head, and many of the units include large lanais with glass railings. Equipped with stainless steel Bosch appliances, the gourmet kitchen is a dream to cook in. Aluminum baseboards, natural quartz countertops, glass tile backsplash, and glass upper cabinets combine to create an elegant atmosphere. Finally, the bathrooms boast wood cabinetry, porcelain tiles, and Grohe faucets.

The Collection is located near the best neighborhood venues for shopping and dining, and several beach parks are just minutes away including Kakaako Waterfront Park and Ala Moana Beach Park. For an exciting day out, head to Magic Island Beach Park just beyond Ala Moana.

Sales for the development began in 2013, and construction began in 2014. Developers, Alexander & Baldwin, intend to premiere The Collection in 2017.
