Uraku Tower is a 29-story residential condominium located on 1341 Kapiolani Boulevard just a few steps away from Ala Moana Shopping Center. This condo has a resort feel thanks to its spectacular amenities, magnificent ocean views and spacious units. Built during the Japanese economic bubble during the late ‘80s, it’s clear that Uraku Tower was meant originally to be built as a vacation home and/or an investment property. Today, 50-percent of new construction units must be offered only to owner-occupants for the first 30 days of sales.
Be sure to look at the splurging amenities which explain why maintenance fees are on the higher side – there are even a limousine service and weekly housekeeping. If you want to live the ultimate luxury life, Uraku Tower is perfect for you.
There are 92 units in Uraku Tower and they are almost all two-bedroom floor plans except for the penthouse levels on 26 to 29 floors, which are three bedrooms. Prices range from $890K to $2M and maintenance fees are $1.40 to $1.63 per square feet. The two-bedroom units are about 1,275 to 1,384 square feet. You can enjoy spacious lanais that range from 139 to 199 square feet, plus floor-to-ceiling glass in the living rooms which give way to expansive ocean vistas.
Uraku Tower is situated between Ala Moana and Kakaako, so you’ve got access to plenty of shopping and entertainment. Ala Moana Shopping Center, the world’s largest open-air mall, has grocery and convenience stores like Foodland Farms and Longs Drugs. Other stores like Walmart, Sam’s Club and Palama Market are within walking or driving distance. If you’re keen for a swim or surf session, or even just a simple relaxing picnic by the beach, Ala Moana Beach Park is nearby as well.
There’s plenty else to do in Kakaako and Ward. Catch a movie, shop at a boutique store or enjoy hip restaurants like Merriman’s, Nobu Honolulu, Piggy Smalls, Scratch Kitchen and Bakery and much more.
You can also drive, take the bus, or hop on the upcoming rail to downtown, which is a plus if you work there. Chinatown is home to more restaurants and bars for some nighttime entertainment. Private schools like Punahou and Iolani are also within 10 to 20 minutes of driving, depending on traffic.
Here’s where Uraku Tower stands out. There’s a pool, jacuzzi, putting green, fitness center, BBQ area with outdoor dining, sauna and steam room, meeting room, limousine service for airport, golf, dining purposes, weekly housekeeping services (linens, towels, lanai cleaning) and a 24-hour concierge.
Luxury’s the theme here, so you’ve got units that all face towards the ocean – which is literally only a few blocks away.
