Ward Village Development Continues With Anaha
The Howard Hughes Corp. will break ground in the coming months for Anaha, the second of two mixed-use residential towers in Phase One of the Ward Village master-planned community. A groundbreaking for the first tower, Waiea, was held June 7.
Located at 1108 Auahi St., at the corner of Kamakee Street, Anaha will consist of a 400-foot-tall, 38-story tower with 311 residences and a low-rise component with 73 townhomes and flats.
Architects for the project are Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Benjamin Woo. The general contractor is Albert C. Kobayashi, the landscape architect is SurfaceDesign, and the interior designer is Woods Bagot & Ingrao.
Construction is expected to begin this summer and is slated for completion in late 2016.
Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties, sales agent for both Waiea and Anaha, has opened a sales office, which includes model units, on the sixth floor of the Ward Village Information Center and Sales Gallery, located in the IBM Building at 1240 Ala Moana Blvd. A scale model of the entire Ward Village development can be viewed on the first floor of the building. As of the first quarter of 2014, 70 percent of Anaha buyers have been Hawaii residents.
Projected as a “vibrant integrated community that combines culture, shopping, gathering places and homes,” Ward Village has received LEED Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) Platinum certification, making the Honolulu project the largest LEED-ND Platinum-certified project in the nation and the only such project in the state.
