Kewalo Hale is a smaller Honolulu condo building
, just the 3 floors and a dozen residences in all. Even so, the walk-up building fits right in with the low-rise landscape of this area that's found where Makiki and Punchbowl transition from one to the other.
The condos are evenly divided, splitting into 6 1BR/1BA (541 sq ft) and 6 2BR/1BA (642 sq ft) layouts each. There are no lanais and, while the limited floors keeps things simple and familiar, it also restricts your sightline to something close to that of a single family home. Even so, the lack of high-rises enclosing you works in your favor, ensuring a more open view than you'd have had, say, in Kaheka.
Another built-in benefit of this site is that church that is your immediate makai neighbor, their footprint spanning both lots on that side. Behind you is a single family home and the remaining 2 on your mauka side are also walk-ups, no taller than yourself.
For local conveniences, Makiki Shopping Village is just up the street, where you'll find Village Market, a local equivalent to 7-11, Sure Shot Cafe and a few eateries. Times & Safeway are just across the highway, walkable for many and nearby Piikoi St takes you straight down to where it makes up the rough dividing line between Ala Moana Center on one side and the start of Kakaako on the other.
The entrance to H1 East is a quick ride of 5 minutes or so from home, but you won't need that to get to work Downtown. The ride to the job center of Oahu can be almost as fast as getting to the highway, though rush hour may add to that. Regardless, your location comes under the heading of convenient for that daily commute.
There's even more to talk about, we didn't even mention Makiki District Park being a block and a half from your door, for instance. You've heard enough to know that this is a property that doesn't offer the extras some insist on, instead it's one that gives the right buyer the kind of rewards they'll realize are paying off every day.
