Waiea-mainWaiea is leading the way for sophistication and luxury in Honolulu, with asking prices for penthouses pushing the area’s usual numbers. Known as the jewel of Ward Village, this condominium tower reaches 36 stories high and houses 171 units.

The 171 units include 10 townhomes, 10 penthouses, and even one grand deluxe penthouse to rival the most luxurious in Honolulu. One-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts are available, and the size of these units are larger than the usual condos in Honolulu, ranging from 1,138 to 3,071 square feet.

The surface of Waiea is awe-inspiring in itself, with a glass wrapping purposefully reminiscent of Hawaii’s ocean waves. In fact, from many high-rise units, residents will enjoy fantastic views of Ala Moana Beach Park and the ocean just across the street.

The impressive features continue throughout the building. Residents have full access to a sparkling infinity-edge pool, a relaxing hot tub, and a large event lawn. The barbeque pavilions are perfect for hosting gatherings, and pets will love the dog park. Break a sweat in the fitness and yoga centers then spoil yourself in the steam and sauna rooms. A theater room, a library, a bar and lounge, and a golf simulator are just a few more of the luxury amenities included at Waiea.

The windows are fitted with motorized shades for convenience, and the gourmet kitchen’s Miele appliances and gas range would please any chef. There is even a wine refrigerator included. Finally, the bathrooms are detailed with handsome onyx walls, quartz counters, freestanding tubs, and luxurious rain showers.

The management team at Waiea provides excellent services like concierge, valet parking, dedicated elevators for prime condos, and 24-hour security. It is easy to host guests here, too, with overnight guest suites and guest parking.

Waiea’s location is one of the best in Honolulu. Sitting just across the street from the beach front, Waiea is surrounded by the neighborhood’s hottest shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. Waiea is also part of a Ward Village redevelopment project along with other residential developments and retail spaces. This project strives to meet LEED certifications to create high-quality energy efficiency, pedestrian-friendly streets, alternate transportation, open artistic spaces, and more.

Started in early 2014, Waiea is planned by Victoria Ward Ltd. and Howard Hughes Company and is set to premiere in 2016.
