Aalii is a condo project in Honolulu featuring micro units ranging from 277 square foot studios to 835 square foot two bedroom units. Aalii has a ton of amenities including a roof top deck with outdoor entertaining spaces and a full fitness indoor/outdoor gym.
Aalii is Howard Hughes’ 6th building in Ward Village. Built adjacent to Ae’o (the tower above Whole Foods Market), Aalii features 751 units, 150 of which are 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 are offered. 900 square feet is the size of the largest unit available (two-bed, two-bath floor plan), and 300 sq.ft. is the size of the smallest studio.
The tower was designed by San Francisco’s Solomon Cordwell Buenz, the same architect that designed Anaha. The project site is located adjacent to Honolulu’s future railway and roughly 0.2 miles from the Kakaako rail station.
The Amenities at 'A'ali'i
With just under an acre of recreation space, amenities include barbecue cabanas, a swimming pool, kid’s pool, fitness centers, a playground, private party rooms, and lounges. Learning from other buildings in the Kakaako area, Aalii has over 10 BBQ areas. Some of these BBQ areas are indoor outdoor for larger get togethers utilizing the year around great weather Hawaii has to offer.
Aalii includes secure bicycle parking for residents and storage on the ground-level and exterior retail bicycle parking near retail areas. Ground-level amenities include a resident’s dog park occupying approximately 1,940 square feet as part of the pet-friendly design.
Aalii also has something that no other condo in Ward Village has; the entire penthouse level is a second amenity deck for all of the residents of Aalii to enjoy. On "Lanai 42" you'll find outdoor recreation space, the fitness center, more private party rooms, yoga rooms, and a lounge.
Everything that Ward Village has to offer is at the finger tips of Aalii residents. Close proximity to “The Central Plaza”, Ward Village’s main public outdoor space, is 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.
Features of the Residences
Many of the smaller studio units, and perhaps some of the largest units, have built-in furniture. Furnishing smaller units so that the space available is used efficiently is always a difficult task. Howard Hughes designed the space so that it flows in the most efficient way possible, making life as comfortable as possible for residents. 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!
