Our Kaka'ako is a new community encompassing nine city blocks in in the west end of Kaka'ako. The community is being developed by Kamehameha Schools, which was founded by Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last direct descendant of King Kamehameha I. The area sits just next to downtown Honolulu, bound by Ala Moana Boulevard, South Street and Halekuwila Street.
Future development plans call for a massive increase in housing availability with a focus on affordable condos as well as several luxury developments such as Alia. Many of the new planned developments are heavily focused on the mixed use space planning combined with a robust offering of commercial retail and restaurants all encompassing a truly unique walkable community.
The mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhood features a wide range of low-rise towers, high-rise towers and townhouses. As you can see from the above map, completed residential projects include The Collection (a luxury high-rise), Six Eighty (loft-style rental apartments), 400 Keawe (low-rise condominium) and Keauhou Place (luxury high-rise) with more to come.

The theme for the neighborhood is arts and culture and is home to the Pow Wow Art movement which brings over a hundred International and local artists together to create murals and other forms of art which covers many of the buildings in this area.
While exploring the neighborhood, expect to see murals like this lining the warehouse walls with accompanying tourists exploring the trendy new neighborhood.
