A sophisticated island lifestyle awaits residents at Waihonua, a 43-story residential tower developed and completed by Alexander and Baldwin Properties in early 2015. The gorgeous community sits just off of Waimanu Street at the base of Pensacola Avenue, within walking distance of Ala Moana Shopping Center.

community-community-amenities1This pet-friendly community holds 345 energy-efficient units, with floor plans ranging from one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts, and each level typically holds nine condominiums. The interiors are inspired without seeming overdone, and
homey touches are found in details like the hardwood flooring, high ceilings, and plush carpeting.

Waihonua condos are sleek and efficient. The in-home stackable full-sized washer and dryer appliances make laundry easy, and the floor-to-ceiling windows allow lots of natural light to stream in. Polished granite lines the kitchen countertops, and the cabinetry and full-height pantry are custom made. Meanwhile, the bathrooms boast full-sized tubs, and each master bedroom holds a spacious walk-in closet. Every unit also includes one storage locker.

While the high-rise suggests great views, Waihonua is also surrounded by other high-rise buildings. However, units on the rear side enjoy amazing views of the mountains, and the best ocean views are found from the higher floor units facing southeast.

The Waihonua lifestyle would not be so luxurious without its onsite amenities. Enjoy a film in the private movie theater, relax in the infinity-edge pool, get fit in the exercise facility or yoga studio, or host your friends in the guest suites. Surfers will appreciate the surfboard storage areas, and the club room is perfecting for hosting parties. To keep the community private and quiet, management runs controlled-access gates.

WAI-Residence-H-Living-Room_smallLocated in the Kaka’ako and Ala Moana corridor, Waihonua towers above world-class shopping centers, restaurants, parks, and beaches. Residents never walk far to reach the world’s largest open-air shopping center, Ala Moana Shopping Center, or Ward Centers, a four-block collection of unique shops and restaurants. Just across the street is Ala Moana Beach Park, a 76-acre area of grassy areas, golden sand, and calm waters protected by a coral reef. For an exciting day on the water, walk to Kewalo Basin Harbor, where you will find a variety of fun ocean activities.

While this community holds a lower profile than its neighboring ultra-luxury developments, Waihonua is stylish, sophisticated, and not to be overlooked. One-bedroom floor plans start at $615,000, two-bedroom plans start at $860,000, and three-bedroom plans start at $1,300,000. The most luxurious and expensive option reaches nearly $3 million.
