Ko'ula is Howard Hughes' 7th planned tower in it's Ward Village masterplan. Planned for the "second row" Ko'ula will have great ocean views with limited obstruction from "First row" buildings. Ko'ula will feature 570 residential units with 64 reserved housing units. There will be 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.
The amenities at Ko'ula should be on par with other Ward Village projects which means that they will be designed with utmost detail and beautifully manicured. At this time we know there will be two pools, a kiddie pool and an adult pool, there will be BBQ cabanas, playground, indoor recreation rooms, and most likely a gym.
If you're not yet familiar with Ward Village then you're in for a treat. Howard Hughes is creating a masterplan live, work, play community with the most walkable streets in Kakaako. Restaurants, shops, bars, and boutiques will feature 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, will be a hub for the community along with the 3 acre central plaza that will be adjacent to Ko'ula.
Restaurants like Nobu and Merriman's on the high-end side to eateries like Nalu Health Bar and Scratch Kitchen for everyday comfort food, Ward Village has food offerings for every occasion. Want to go for a surf? Ala Moana Beach Park is a 5 minute walk away with some of the best surf spots on the South Shore. It's the best neighborhood in the most ideal location, on the best island.
Details about the level of finishes are not yet available. I can imagine that the units will be on par with Anaha considering that project is also located in the "second row" in Ward Village. We will provide updates as they become available.
