A&B Announces New Condominium Project: Waihonua at Kewalo
HONOLULU – November 30, 2011 – Kewalo Development LLC, a subsidiary of A&B Properties, Inc., has unveiled a new residential condominium project, Waihonua at Kewalo. The planned 43-story tower, situated on Waimanu Street between Ala Moana Shopping Center and the Ward Centers, will be the final high-rise condominium in Honolulu’s premiere residential high-rise neighborhood. The proximity to shopping, dining, recreation, transportation, and a complete array of services makes Waihonua an excellent choice for urban living.
Since acquiring the property in mid-2010, Kewalo Development has worked with Hawaii-based architects Design Partners, Inc., and its architectural consultant, Pappageorge Haymes of Chicago, to create a stunning design for the tower inspired by the rich history of the Kewalo area as well as the ocean, mountain and city views. Amenities at Waihonua at Kewalo will include a fitness center, recreation deck including pool, spa and cabanas with barbeques, and a private movie theatre. “Waihonua at Kewalo will offer a sophisticated urban lifestyle to a broad spectrum of buyers in today’s market place,” said A&B Land Group President Christopher J. Benjamin. “The location, great amenities and interior design features will make this a tremendous opportunity for buyers.”
Waihonua at Kewalo will consist of 345 one to three bedroom residences, and will offer seven penthouse residences on the 43rd floor. The planned opening of the sales gallery in December will allow interested buyers to purchase a unit in Waihonua. Fee-simple prices will begin at $400,000 for one bedroom/one bath, $565,000 for two bedroom/two bath, and $720,000 for three-bedroom/two bath residences.
The sales gallery will be located at 1311 Kapiolani Boulevard, Suite 104. For more information: www.waihonua.com
