howard hughes announces ulana and the park on ward

The Howard Hughes Corporation met with the board members of the Hawaii Community Development Authority on Wednesday to present a preview of the latest development plans in their highly acclaimed Ward Village master plan in Kaka'ako. The developer is proposing to construct the 8th and 9th towers of the master plan with construction slated to start in 2022. 

Ward Village

Ward Village was named the 2018 Master Planned Community of the Year and their vision has seen a once industrial-dense zone transformed into the pinnacle of urban living in Kakaako. Wide, sidewalk-line streets and ground-level retail, restaurant, and shopping provide a neighborhood fully navigable by foot or bike. Premier proximity to Ala Moana Center and Ala Moana Beach Park reflect urban amenities second to none. The projected Honolulu Rail Transit will also thread the neighborhood, providing multiple stops and broadened community access to landmarks like SALT at Kakaako, Honolulu International Airport, on to the genesis of the rail in the Hoopili community of West-Oahu.

Ulana Ward Village is slated to be the largest, more moderately priced choice of of the two new Kakaako condos while The Park on Ward will provide a more luxury element. Here's the highlights:

Ulana Ward Village Condos

  • 697 total units, tower will anchor the block bordered by Auahi, Kamani, & Pohukaina Streets
  • Expect the building to feature Reserved Housing units for sale. Read some of the common FAQ's here Honolulu Affordable Housing guidelines
  • Adjacent to 30,000 square-foot public park
  • Separate parking structure for residents
  • 30,000 square feet of commercial space that may feature restaurants, retail, etc

The Park on Ward Condos

    • 546 market-priced, mid luxury Kakaako condos
    • Tower will front Ward Avenue, the site once home to Sports Authority
    • Ground floor retail on every side of the building
    • Portion of build site will be allocated to increase size of adjacent public park


Completion of the two new Ward Village condos will align with Ko'ula and Victoria place, the 6th and 7th towers currently under construction, and will further Howard Hughes' vision of creating a 60-acre urban-utopia of 4,500 new hawaii homes that span a total of 16 towers. The rise of Waiea and Anaha luxury condos in Ward Village originally set the tone for the neighborhood and was closely followed by Ae'o; commonly referred to as the "Whole Foods Building." The 4th tower, Ke Kilohana, provided a "reserved housing" option of more moderately priced home while the 750-unit tower of 'A'ali'i is currently still under construction.

The Honolulu Real Estate Market has truly become the "Tail of Two Communities" as Ward Village and the Kapiolani Corridor continue their duel of urban planning and residential development. Kapiolani will also see two new Honolulu condos entering the market via Keeaumoku Towers; a 1,000 unit project pinned for the "Koreamoku" area of Honolulu in 2021.
