The burgeoning Kakaako skyline continues to grow as Ililani, a new residential condo tower on the culture-rich streets of West Kakaako. This 42 story high-rise condo will be brought to life in Kakaako which has been no stranger to new development over the past 5 years. Recent condo additions like The Collection, Keauhou Place, 400 Keawe, and 801 South currently anchor the neighborhood but Ililani will be the first new building to this side of Kakaako in over two years.

Located at 615 Keawe St, the building will be oriented on the corner of Keawe & Halekauwila St, only two blocks from one of Honolulu's thriving urban epicenters in SALT at Kaka'ako! As for views, Ililani condo owners should expect a range of Ocean, Mountain, and City views. Dependent on floor height of course!
The Ililani condos for sale will be located on the vibrant, trendy West Side of Kakaako. Spend anytime in the neighborhood and you'll get the sense that you're walking through and art show with building high, mural lined streets exploding with color and creativity.
Mass appeal has surrounded the neighborhood for the past 5 years and much of this can be attributed to the innovative development of entry level to ultra luxury condominium buildings, premier convenience to Ala Moana Shopping Center, Ala Moana Beach Park, as well as it's walkability to numerous emerging dining and shopping opportunities. The neighborhood will see also future rails stations providing alternative means of commute east to Ala Moana Center, west to Honolulu Airport, and furthest west to the "Second City" of Kapolei. The Civic Rail station will be the closest rails center to the project and is located just north of the tower on Halekauwila St.
With SALT at Kaka'ako only two blocks and an elevator ride away, Ililani condo owners will have a cast array of shopping, dining, and retail opportunities within walking distance. You could nearly eat out for every meal a day and never eat at the same restaurant twice within the month! That might be a slight exaggeration but it's not far from the truth.
The amenity deck will be placed above the 8th floor parking garage with additional indoor amenities consisting of a "multi-purpose" recreation area to host events, exercise, and/or yoga. Adjacent to the "multi-purpose room" will be the E-lounge, a "Co-working" inspired space that will offer high speed WiFi, tables, and mounted TV's for presentations. Co-working has become a popular concept among the millenial generation and will provide another great way for Ililani's business professionals and entreprenuers to connect, literally and figuratively, within the building.
Lounge next to the splash pool, throw a BBQ with friends, or lounge in the lawn area purposed for enjoying the Honolulu sun or an evening movie on the lawn! We expect there to be a restaurant at ground level of the building, front Halekauwila St, as well as light retail on the Keawe St side; coffee shop?
Ililani strives to promote alternative means of commute to its residents and this is reflected by it's strategic placement next to the future planned Halekauwila rail stop. Owners will also have exclusive access to Ililani Ridge Share, a set a fleet vehicles to be rented at nominal rates, offering alternative transportation options to owners or guests!

Working in Kakaako everyday, SALT is easily one of my favorite places to drop in and punch away at the computer. Coffee or breakfast at Morning Brew for a few hours and then on to one of my favorite lunch spots at Pioneer Saloon, Moku, Highway Inn, or Insomnia. Get the pork chops!
