The lottery will take place on the 29th of June to determine the selection order with the actual home selection occurring on the 30th of June. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me for assistance with this process. My team and I have helped many reserved housing buyers through this process including 9 buyers at Ke Kilohana, Howard Hughes' last reserved housing project.
Here are the prices and the units types that will be offered in the lottery.
Aalii will be Howard Hughes’ 6th building in Ward Village. Built on Block N adjacent to Ae’o, Aalii will feature 751 units, 150 of which will be designated for reserved housing. Howard Hughes looked at sales trends from the other buildings within Ward Village and realized there is great demand for smaller lower priced units. With Aalii, studio, one- and two-bedroom units will be offered. 900 square feet will be the size of the largest unit available and 300 sq.ft. will be the size of the smallest studio.
The tower was designed by San Francisco’s Solomon Cordwell Buenz, the same architect that designed Anaha, with local partner Ferraro Choi and Associates Ltd.. The project site is located adjacent to Honolulu’s future railway and roughly 0.2 miles from the Kakaako rail station.
With just under an acre of recreation space, amenities will include barbecue cabanas, an adult swimming pool, kid’s pool, fitness centers, a playground, private rooms and lounges. Learning from other buildings in the Kakaako area, Aalii will have close to 10 BBQ cabana areas. Some of these BBQ areas will be indoor outdoor for larger get togethers utilizing the year around great weather Hawaii has to offer.
There will be a “sky deck” recreation space and fitness center located on the 42nd floor (pictured above).
Aalii will include secure resident bicycle parking and storage on the ground-level and exterior retail bicycle parking near retail areas. Ground-level amenities will include a resident’s dog park occupying approximately 1,940 square feet as part of the pet-friendly design.
Everything that Ward Village has to offer will be at the finger tips of Aalii residents. Close proximity to “The Central Plaza” Ward Village’s main public outdoor space, will be the home to many events like outdoor yoga, possible farmer’s markets and more. Walking distance to the future Whole Foods Market, Auahi Street Promenade, and Ward Village Shops.
Many of the smaller studio units, and perhaps some of the largest units, will have built-in furniture. Furnishing smaller units so that the space available is used efficiently is always a difficult task. Howard Hughes will design the space so that it flows in the most efficient way possible making life as comfortable as possible for residents. I’m not sure if the built-in will be an option after purchasing or if all of the units will come this way, details will be released prior to launch. Below you can see the two photos featuring the transforming furniture. When you’re alone or not entertaining guests you can keep your bed down with a great desk to work on, by night it transforms into a small table for intimate dinners and get togethers.
One cool unique feature that Aalii will have is it’s very own App. Reserving a BBQ cabana. checking availability on recreation rooms, or contacting concierge is that much easier from the palm of your hand, very COOL!
Although individual floor plans have not been released, here is a rendering of the floor plate of the tower. If you scroll to the bottom of the page there is a photo that will open much larger so you can see some details of the individual units (individual floors plans are subject to change).
