Kakaako Townhomes Support Single-Family-Home Lifestyle
The Collection condominium community located in the ewa end of Kakaako is unique among new developments in the area with its three distinct home styles offering a variety of options for urban living. All increments have been well received by the market.
The Tower at The Collection, a 43-story high-rise with 397 units, and The Lofts at The Collection, a four-story mid-rise with 54 units, are sold out. The last increment, The Townhomes at The Collection, is currently on the market with a limited number of units remaining.
Scheduled for completion in November, the townhome development consists of 14 three-story units, each with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a den, rooftop deck, attached private garage and private entrance; prices range from $1,695,000 to $1,795,000.
The developer, The Collection LLC, a subsidiary of A&B Properties Inc., put together a blue ribbon team for The Townhomes: general contractor Coastal Construction Co. Inc., architects Pappageorge Haymes Partners and Design Partners Inc., interior designer Phil-potts Interiors, landscape architect Brownlie & Lee, construction manager Griffith Consulting Group Inc., and project broker Heyer & Associates LLC.
The units are spacious with 1,835 to 1,895 interior square feet augmented by private rooftop decks ranging from 560 to 593 square feet. Features include a landscaped front yard, two-car garage on the ground level that connects directly to each residence, a ground-floor den, contemporary-design kitchens with top-of-the-line appliances and both gas and electric for cooking, and luxurious bathrooms with high-quality fixtures, wood cabinetry and custom showers, as well as a full-size soaking tub in the master bathroom.
The rooftop terrace, an ideal space for entertaining, is equipped with electric and gas stub-outs for barbecue grills and hot tubs, wood decking, a trellis for vined plants and a connecting indoor wet-bar space with under-counter refrigerator and an ice maker. The complex also is pet-friendly.
The Townhomes are planned for energy efficiency with multi-zone split air-conditioning and sub-metered electricity. Residents pay for only the electricity they use, and maintenance fees, starting at $631 a month, are comparatively low for a new, upscale condominium.
A&B Properties senior vice president Rick Stack commented, “The Townhomes marry a private, residential lifestyle with the walkable convenience of an urban community.”
Remaining townhome units are available for sale at The Collection Sales Gallery, located at 680 Ala Moana Blvd. For more information, go to TheCollectionHonolulu.com.
