Hoaka Heights new condominium development.

Is Hoaka Heights the name of a new condominium development to be build on Kapiolani Boulevard?

Florida’s real estate developer, Crescent Heights, under its subsidiary Hoaka Heights LLC, has set plans in motion to construct a 400-foot condominium-hotel tower on Kapiolani Boulevard in Honolulu. This ambitious project aims to house nearly 900 units. A year ago, Hoaka Heights acquired the 1.3-acre land, spread across three lots, for a sum close to $38 million. This is the same land where a Chinese developer previously intended to erect a high-rise residential building.

The proposed structure will feature 493 junior suites, 203 studios, 172 one-bedroom units, 23 two-bedroom units, and approximately 2,500-square-feet of retail space. The pricing and construction timeline for this project remain undisclosed. Crescent Heights, with a history of similar ventures, has been instrumental in developing properties like Koolani and the Ala Moana Hotel in Hawaii, and has left its mark in cities like San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Miami, Seattle, Atlanta, and Los Angeles.
