The Residential Tower
Sky Ala Moana will consist of two towers, one with residences and the other for a condo-hotel. The project has a great location at Kapiolani Boulevard walking distance to Ala Moana Shopping Center. Sky Ala Moana will feature 84 affordable housing units with 390 market rate units. It'll be the first building of its kind to offer affordable units with a 30 year buy back period. Other buildings in the Ala Moana Midtown neighborhood like The Central Ala Moana and Kapiolani Residence have a 10 year buy-back period.
Similar to Ae'o and 'A'ali'i in Ward Village the two towers of Sky Ala Moana will be facing each other. The "V" shape orientation of the buildings will allow for great city views with partial ocean views.
Though nothing is certain, rumor has it that Sky Ala Moana will feature over an acre of amenities. It's likely that the condo-hotel and condo tower will share amenities. From the renderings below it's clear there will be a large pool, open green space, BBQ cabanas, and likely much more indoor amenities like a fitness center and movie theater, though nothing is certain.
There will be shops on the ground floor of the project with the amazing tree lined streets of Kapiolani Blvd adding to the ambience of the building. With such large street frontage, projects like this will slowly transform the look and feel of Kapiolani Boulevard.
