Nauru Tower condominium is perhaps the most striking example of urban architecture in the Honolulu urban landscape. A single glass tower that is a half cylinder rising over Ala Moana Beach Park.  People continually remark on its appearance. This luxury condo has been voted the best condominium in Honolulu, Hawaii several times. The building management take a great deal of pride in serving the residents and making them feel truly at home.  The location is outstanding as it is easy to get to anywhere in Honolulu via Ala Moana Blvd. It is also within walking distance to hundreds of shops and restaurants at Ala Moana Center and Ward Center.

The building was completed in 1990.  Each floor is roughly divided into 8 units. The penthouse levels have fewer units per floor and are also more spacious.  Unit ’01 faces towards Honolulu Harbor and the airport.  There is some view obstruction from surrounding buildings. This unit also faces towards the mountains.  The unit wraps around one end of the cylinder.  Then units’02, ’03, ’04, ’05, 06 and ’07 face the ocean and over Ala Moana Beach Park.  The least obstructed views are the ’03, ’04 and ’05 units.  Also, the unit does not have to be very high to have an ocean view.  Unit ’08 faces Diamond Head.  There is still ocean view, but the bedrooms face the mountains.  Many residents like this side of the building because it is cooler. The Penthouse levels start on the 33rd floor.  However the most supreme penthouses are on the 43rd and 44th floor.  These are 3 levels with plenty of outdoor lanai space.

The amenities are on the 7th floor and can be accesses by a glass covered bridge.  The pool and barbecue areas are spread out over a park like setting on top of the parking garage.  It is wonderfully maintained. Unfortunately there is no fitness room which is something many people really want.

The biggest upside to the Nauru is being in Kakaako and having unobstructed views of the ocean.  The down sides may be that the floor plans can be a little awkward and it is a little dated.  Some units have been completely remodeled from the original plan.  If location is important, this is one of the best spots. Certainly the Nauru Tower is more affordable than the higher end luxury Kakaako condos being built in the area.


PROs: Outstanding ocean views,  close to shopping and restaurants.  close to the beach

CONs: sometimes awkward floor plans, dated interiors, no fitness room.
