In June, sales will begin of residences in the exclusive Gateway Towers, the flagship high-rises at the heart of Ward Village—Honolulu’s new planned community overlooking Kewalo Harbor and Ala Moana Beach Park. Completion dates for the first two residential buildings, named Waiea and Anaha, are scheduled for 2016 and 2017, respectively, with completion of the Gateway Towers to follow as part of the project’s second phase.
Richard Meier & Partners Architects—which also created the Getty Center atop Los Angeles’ Santa Monica Mountains—designed the towers so every residence will have expansive views and take in ample natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows. Once completed, the towers will have a combined 225 units, with starting prices ranging from $1.5 million to $4.1 million for one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos and penthouses. The base of the towers will house 20,000 square feet of restaurants, shops, and a Whole Foods Market.
Ward Village itself will be an exclusive, 60-acre coastal community with extensive green spaces and walking paths. It will be located in the heart of the Hawaiian capital, just steps from the waterfront and high-end shopping at the Ala Moana Center. The community is designed with sustainability in mind; it is Hawaii’s only LEED ND Platinum–certified project and will be the largest LEED Platinum neighborhood in the United States. (wardvillage.com)
