Today, I enjoyed the ceremony for the A’ali’i condo groundbreaking. New owners, developer employees, and other dignitaries were on hand for the ceremony. Mayor Kirk Caldwell delivered a short speech on the benefits of the transformation of the area. Incorporating unique architecture with the concept of promoting a simpler way of life is the hallmark of Ward Village in Kakaako. The condo will be close to a future rail stop. The neighborhood’s design allows for an easier place to walk and ride a bike. This A’ali’i condo groundbreaking is a new start for a way of life for many in this Ward Village neighborhood. It is a smarter way to live, to bring a better life to many affordable buyers.
This condo has 751-units with over 150 units classified as “affordable” under the Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA). The affordable program offers many people to own their first property. The building has studio, one, and two bedroom units. There are also some micro-units in the condo. Buyers can elect to have their units come fully furnished.

The ceremony itself showed Mayor Caldwell, the head of the HCDA and others. The tents and audience were faced out towards Kewalo Basin and the Central Plaza. Everyone took pictures with the new Central Plaza and the boats in the background. It is a beautiful start to another amazing building in Ward Village. The ceremony happened sooner than expected. Sales happened much faster than first thought allowing the developer to start construction early. The condo is currently 80% sold. After seeing the Waiea, the Anaha and the Aeo condo be so successful, more people want to take a chance on this latest condo.
