Condos For Sale in The Collection, Kaka'ako, HI
Developed by Alexander & Baldwin, the same firm that developed Waihonua in Kaka'ako, The Collection Honolulu offers interested buyers a variety of housing options. The main building is a high-rise tower that is comparable to other Honolulu high rises. There is a mid-rise building that has studio and two-bedroom floor plans, and townhomes that are along the street with private garages. These three housing options are why they chose the name The Collection. The mid-rise building is the most affordable, with studio suites starting in the mid $300,000s. The price point is incredible for the community, as many of the buildings next door are million-dollar homes. For those looking to get into the best area in Honolulu on a budget, The Collection is a great place to start.
The Collection Honolulu is located on the West end of Kaka'ako, just minutes away from the future light rail transit station. The building is across the street from SALT, which is 85,000 square feet of retail space, boutiques, restaurants, and local artisans. Residents can walk to get groceries from Whole Foods, visit Target and Planet Fitness, and so much more. The Kaka'ako waterfront park is nearby, which is the perfect place for a family picnic or to sit and watch the nightly sunset. Steps away from the beach, residents can easily spend the day at the beach, have a picnic, stop by to cool off from the hot Hawaiian sun, or just pop by for a swim before sunset anytime they choose.
For those who live in the central tower, right below the condos, there are dining options, shopping, and services, and just a short elevator ride away. Since the building’s development, more and more excellent amenities have moved into the area. Ward’s has plenty of exciting options on its own, but beyond the community, there is so much more.
The downtown core of Honolulu is just minutes away down Ala Moana Blvd, and residents have access to both business and leisure. For those who work downtown, The Collection is in a prime location to walk or bike downtown each day. For those who love the outdoors, Hawaii is your playground. Steps away from the beach, residents are privy to the best beaches in the world. Ala Moana Beach is close to the building, and Waikiki is just a short distance down the road.
While it’s almost always packed with tourists, there are plenty of amenities that are geared towards the endless flow of tourists. Some of the island’s best restaurants and shops are located near Waikiki. If you love to surf and swim, you have the ocean in your backyard. Go for a hike at Diamond Head to get some of the best views you’ll ever see. There are numerous regional parks to explore, along with hidden gems that are local favorites all around the island.

The Collection is considered its own little town. While drawing inspiration from the Kaka'ako community, it’s the culmination of luxury living, affordable living, and beautiful townhomes, next to dining and retailers within the boundaries of the property. The four buildings at The Collection are The Tower, the Annex Tower, the Lofts, and the Townhomes.
The Tower stands on a mauka to makai line, which means that while fewer units face the ocean, it opens up the views for the suites further back. The floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious lanais are perfect for taking in those views. Each residence has USB ports with every power outlet.
The Townhomes have thoughtful details, beautiful finishes, and plenty of natural light to brighten up the coziest of spaces. Residents of The Collection love what the building has to offer.
Condos have one- and two-bedroom options and can have from 579 to 1036 square feet of living space. The three-bedroom units have between 1,133 and 1,217 square feet of living space. The four-story condo residence and three-story townhomes complete the small-town atmosphere. Townhome residents do not have access to the tower amenities. The variety of housing options make The Collections one of the most sought-after buildings in the area.
The Collection is a family-friendly community that is affordable. With larger properties, larger families may choose The Collection as their home. For those with children, the schools in the area are Royal Elementary School, Central Middle School, and President William McKinley High School. These schools are all within ten minutes from the building, and they are some of Hawaii’s best public schools. The public schools on the island have a reputation for excellence, from the test scores to the staff. For parents who prefer a charter school or private school, there are plenty of options in Honolulu. If students choose to move onto post-secondary after they graduate, the University of Hawaii is also within ten minutes from The Collection.
