Waiea was completed in 2017 and is the first completed condominium as part of Howard Hughes master plan for “Ward Village”, Honolulu’s fastest growing urban neighborhood. The building is considered “ultra-luxury” and is the crown jewel and flagship building of the Howard Hughes development company.
Waiea, is the Hawaiian term for “water of life” and is the inspiration for the building’s sweeping, water-inspired glass façade and remarkable architecture.
The building was designed by award-winning Vancouver-based architect James K. M. Cheng in collaboration with Rob Iopa and WCIT Architecture. The interior design was done by Ingrao Interiors.
It is also LEED Platinum certified by the USGBC, which means that there is a heavy emphasis on sustainability, energy efficiency and community oriented open spaces.
