In Brief
Kalae is a new ultra-luxury condo project with an anticipated completion 2026 (construction has not commenced yet). The project will be located in a prime location within the Ward Village master planned community and is the 10th tower offered. So far 6 towers are completed, 1 is under construction and 2 are pre-construction.


The project will be 38 stories tall, have a total of 330 residences, 10 units per floor, an amenity deck on the 5th floor and on the ground level 4 entertainment courtyards.


Kalae means ‘The Point’ - indicative of the Diamond Head view many units will have.



The Units
10 units per floor: 2 x 3 bedroom, 4 x 2 bedroom and 4 x 1 bedroom.
00, 02 & 06 stacks: Expected to have beautiful ocean and Diamond Head views.
01 stack: Living room will be ‘sticking out’ and there will be 2 panes of windows with a nice Diamond Head view too, in addition to overall stunning ocean views.
08 & 10 stack: Beautiful ocean views, but no Diamond Head views
03, 05, 07 & 09: Living room ‘sticking out’ to capture better ocean views on an angle, but otherwise more city and mountain views.



Location in Ward Village
Kalae’s address will be 1000 Ala Moana Blvd, which is the east corner where Ala Moana Blvd and Auahi St intersect. This is about 600 ft from Victoria Place - the neighboring building on its east side along Ala Moana Blvd - which is an excellent distance for privacy. Furthermore, Ala Moana Blvd dips / sticks out around Kalae’s planned location, enhancing the ocean views for east facing units even further.


Within Ward Village there are 3 rows where condos are being built:
Front Row: The most exclusive ultra-luxury condos, located along Ala Moana Blvd, which is where Kalae will be located. Other front-row developments include Waiea and Victoria Place.


Second Row: Luxury residences located along Auahi St, which include Anaha, Koula and The Park Ward Village.


Third Row: High-end residences located along Queen St, which include Ae’o and Aalii.



The Amenities & Courtyards
Unique to Kalae is 4 Courtyards that will be located on the 1st floor, which can hold between 50 to 100 people. These are indoor / outdoor gathering places, which will have full kitchens, outdoor BBQ, indoor seating with AC, flat screen TV and more. A great way to bring in the feel of being in a luxury single-family home while also keeping visitors on the ground level (no need use elevators etc).

The Neighborhood
Ward Village (Howard Hughes’ 60 Acre Master Planned Community) is roughly defined by (a few lots West of) West Ward Ave, Ala Moana Blvd on the South and Queen St as both eastern and northern borders due to its curved path. Ward Village, when completed, will be a carefully crafted 14 condo project, but will not be defined by concrete sprawl. Hughes has planned a 4 acre "Victoria Ward Park" so the community will have ample room to breathe and enjoy the beauty of this place. The fact that Howard Hughes owns all of this land makes certain that its vision of integrated shopping and services, such as grocery stores, parking structures and dining options will be a certainty. These elements are an integral part of the Ward Village 'outdoor living space' lifestyle, rather than after thoughts added wherever they could fit in - something that happens too often in fast developing Honolulu.
