Aria Lane Manoa

In the midst of Oahu's booming new construction market and the ongoing shortage of single-family homes, a rare opportunity may emerge in metro Honolulu. The campus of St. Francis School, which closed after the last graduating class in 2019, is being eyed for a significant residential development with a mix of brand new construction and Adaptive Reuse; a style of development that's becoming synonymous with Avalon Group CEO, Christine Camp.

The 11.2-acre campus on the east side of Manoa Valley is already zoned for residential use. The Avalon Group purchased it for $23.5 million and plans to transform it into Aria Lane Manoa, featuring 76 Honolulu new construction homes with ADU's as well as a condo conversion of an existing administrative building into 26 townhomes.  Avalon Group is actively selling another condo conversion in Downtown Honolulu; the Modea project which takes the place of the former Davies Pacific Center building.

Here's what we know about these new Manoa homes for sale, so far:

Avalon Group's CEO, Christine Camp states “We’d like to have affordable housing that we can deliver as well as market housing at all levels, and this project allows us to do that,” said

Camp hosted a community meeting Wednesday night to address questions from curious and concerned neighbors worried about further congestion being added to the narrow Pamoa Road

Some residents worry that the additional housing will exacerbate traffic congestion on Pamoa Road, the narrow street leading to the land.

The project does have its supporters. Camp mentioned that the sale of the Catholic school property was approved by the pope and blessed by the Bishop of Honolulu. Others welcome the site of new homes in Manoa, a neighborhood most commonly recognized for it's Historical homes of vintage Hawaiian charm. 

While urban neighborhoods like Ala Moana and Kakaako have struck big with new Honolulu condos over the past decade, development in the Honolulu single family market has remained relatively untouched. This isn't true for all of Oahu though as suburban master plans of Ho'opili in Ewa Beach, Koa Ridge in Waipio Gentry, and Ka'ulu by Gentry are steadily bringing hundreds of brand new single family homes to market year over year. 

This development represents a very rare new construction opportunity in the Manoa Valley community, offering potential homebuyers a chance to live in one of Honolulu’s most desirable neighborhoods. Aria Lane Manoa homes will fill a sizable void in the available, quality starter homes in Manoa -- an area that hasn't seen residential development since the early 1990's.
