Ko'ula is Howard Hughes' 6th tower in its Ward Village community. Planned for the "second row", Ko'ula has great ocean views with limited obstruction from the "first row" buildings. Ko'ula features 570 market residential units with no affordable housing units. There is over 58,000 square feet of commercial space, 58,000 square feet of outdoor/indoor recreational space, and over 10,000 of open space on the ground level.
A unique feature of Ko'ula is that the lobby and all residential services were moved to the second floor, allowing the entire first floor to be open for commercial space. The architect for Ko'ula is Jeanne Gang from Studio Gang out of Chicago, and the interior designer is Yabu Pushelberg, who are both well known for their work designing Four Seasons Hotels around the world.
The amenities at Ko'ula are sure to impress you. Entertaining friends and family in Hawai'i is engrained in our culture. The architects at Ko'ula took that concept one step further and created not just private spaces for entertaining, but beautifully curated spaces that blended between the indoors and out.

If you're not yet familiar with Ward Village then you're in for a treat. Howard Hughes has created a masterplan live, work, and play community with the most walkable streets in Kakaako. Restaurants, shops, bars, and boutiques are featured along the treelined streets, providing a New-York-City-feel in an oceanside community. The brand new Whole Foods Market, the largest in the state, is a hub for the community along with the 3-acre central plaza that is located adjacent to Ko'ula.
