Ko'ula at Ward Village Receives HCDA Approval
Koula, the next planned mixed-use residential condo tower at Ward Village in Kakaako, received approval last week from the Hawaii Community Development Authority. Now that the project is approved, the Howard Hughes team will start trekking towards planning the project and toward their target sales launch date of late 2018, or beginning of 2019. Howard Hughes hopes to break ground late 2019.
Koula will be the first project ever designed in Hawaii by Studio Gang, architect and design firm led by decorated architect, Jeanne Gang. The interiors of Koula will be reflect the design of Yabu Pushelberg, a highly-acclaimed international design firm with offices in Toronto and Soho. Located adjacent to the Central Plaza, Koula's location within Ward Village makes it one of the most convenient towers to the Central Plaza; Ward Village's sweeping, open air gathering place that aims to connect the community with a wide array of restaurants, retail, and parks. The Central Plaza will be a hub to outdoor community events ranging from yoga to outdoor movie viewings, and live local music and hula.
Over an acre of amenities will be available on the 8th floor amenity deck and will including an astonishing swimming pool, a swim and play area for the kids as well as poolside cabanas, sunset lounge area, an expansive lawn, and multiple dining terraces surrounded by a sea of lush, meticulously manicured landscaping, native to Hawaii. Rest assured gym rats, the amenity deck will feature a spa and fitness club.
