With more and more condos on the rise in the Kakaako neighborhood, developers are constantly trying to differentiate their projects from other buildings. In the case of Howard Hughes, they must differentiate each of their condos with unique selling points and amenities. Whether it be through a prime location like Park Lane, seemingly endless amenities in Waiea, or maybe it’s competitive pricing while not comprising luxury as is the case with Vida. Next on the horizon is Howard Hughes’ latest proposed condominum tower, The Gateway, designed by world-renowned architect Richard Meier.
Situated on the Ward Warehouse block in Ward Village, The Gateway will consist of an Ewa tower and a Diamond Head tower. Located between the two towers will be a nearly one-acre central plaza designed by Richard Meier, the famous architect behind The Getty Center. The plaza will feature pedestrian walkways, native plants, water features, and passage from the heart of Kewalo basin to the center of Ward Village.
A few of the notable amenities beyond your typical luxury condominium include a wine tasting room and cellar, pet spa, veranda bar and four luxury guest suites so your friends from out of town can enjoy Kakaako from the luxury of their own suite.
All of the residences at The Gateway will feature 10-foot ceilings, Gaggeneau appliances, wine refrigerators, motorized window shades, and much more. I was able to get a private tour of the model unit on the first day of sales and Howard Hughes has really outdone themselves with the finishes.
“Overall wellness, health and balance can be seen in every design element in Gateway, from the private yoga rooms and ocean view fitness centers to the sprawling public living rooms and infinity-edged lounge pools,” per the developer.
With all of the luxury condominiums on offer in the Kakaako area today, there is a condo for every buyer. Howard Hughes has certainly outdone themselves with this project and the awe-inspiring design by world-renowned architect Richard Meier is a sight to be seen.
