Condos For Sale in Pacifica Honolulu, Kaka'ako, HI
The Pacifica Honolulu started development in 2007, but when the 2008 and 2009 market crashed, the construction on the building slowed and was ultimately sold. The building was sold to Oliver McMillan, the developer for Symphony Honolulu, who improved and finished the project, and by 2011, buyers were allowed to move into their long-awaited homes. Since then, the Pacifica has become one of the most desirable buildings in Kaka'ako. Aside from the beautiful suites, the building boasts a fully-stocked amenity deck, meticulous landscaping, a fantastic location, natural light, and the natural beauty that Hawai'i has to offer.
The residences in the Pacifica building are beautiful, although some of them are on the smaller side at around 700 square feet. If you are looking for a cozy home and the square footage doesn’t matter, this building could be the perfect spot for you. The location is unmatched, and the market in the area is quite competitive. Since all the units have been sold from the developer given the building’s age, some of the suites have been upgraded and changed by the homeowners. The high-rise is made of steel, concrete, and glass. There are 492 suites among the 46 floors. Suites range from one to three bedrooms and can cost anywhere from $800,000 to $3 million.
Building Features Include:
- Fast ‘smart’ elevators that recognize your residence via your keycode
- Ocean views and mountain views
Windows in every unit are double glazed, which is ideal for reducing and keeping out external noise while keeping the space energy efficient. There’s central air conditioning for each unit. Each suite comes equipped with Frigidaire Gallery appliances.
Fun Fact: The Pacifica is the 2nd tallest building in Honolulu!
The Pacifica is located in one of the most popular areas that you can find in Honolulu. Close to everything you could need, such as coffee shops, bars, shopping centers, the Blaisdell Arena and Concert Hall, the Ala Moana Shopping Center, and the Ala Moana Beach Park. Located on the outskirts of the ever-popular Ward Village, everything is within walking distance. Residents are steps from the beach and parks, as well as just minutes away from Downtown. For those who work Downtown, they can walk or bike to work each day.
Since the building was constructed in 2011, many exciting retailers and local businesses have popped up in the area, making it very desirable. Some of the top restaurants are just a short elevator ride away, like Doraku (a popular sushi restaurant), Blue Tree Café (a café offering lattes, coffees, juices, health snacks, and more), and Chef Chai’s (an upscale restaurant offering great island fusion foods and drinks), which are all located inside the building.
Life in the Pacifica is ideal for all lifestyles. For those who love an active social life, they’re in the right place. Located next to Waikiki Beach, the area is popular among tourists, so everyone wants to be in the community. People travel from all over the world to see Waikiki and Diamond Head, so the most popular spots are located close to those areas. The airport is only 15 minutes away for those who like to travel frequently. Some of the best restaurants, shopping, and entertainment are easily accessed by residents and tourists alike. There will also be a light rail station moving in across the street, making the area very accessible. Residents can walk to grab groceries, a coffee, or a bite to eat. With so many tourists in the area all the time, there’s always someone new to meet and talk to. Many tourists will strike up a conversation looking for the hidden gems around the island that only the locals know about.
For outdoor enthusiasts, the beach is steps away from the building. To have the ocean in your backyard is a dream that many have but will never get to fulfill. Ideal for surfing, swimming, and sunbathing, there are many great spots in the area to access the ocean. Waikiki is right next door, and while it’s probably packed with tourists, there’s a good reason why it’s so popular, as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Spend every night at Ala Moana Beach Park watching the sunset over the ocean. Hike up Diamond Head to get some of the incredible views of your home. Visit one of the many regional parks in the area for a picnic or a fun day of exploring with the family.
