About Foster Tower
The Foster Tower Waikiki condos is a crucial piece of both old and modern Waikiki. It personifies the modern aspects because of the dominance of high-rise condos today, of which it was the first, replacing the many single family homes that once lined the streets. Yet it keeps the old life alive by the fact that it's the only purely residential building left on the main strip of Kalakaua Ave. Without it, that would be the end of the local presence on this significant piece of real estate.

That will not be for some time, fortunately, as indicated by the recent renovations of the building's lobby. The Fee Interest can also be purchased, if it hasn't already   ....click here to read more
