About Ward Village®
Developed by The Howard Hughes Corporation, Ward Village is a new 60-acre coastal master planned community in the heart of Honolulu located between downtown and Waikīkī in the Kakaʻako district. Ward Village includes two mixed-use residential towers – Waiea and Anaha – that are now under construction and will transform the popular shopping and dining district into a vibrant neighborhood that offers exceptional residences with incredible island and ocean views and a carefully curated mix of retail experiences set among dynamic public open spaces and walkable streets.
This growing community will include three additional developments: Ae'o at 1001 Queen Street, Gateway Towers and Ke Kilohana at 988 Halekauwila Street. Aeʻo at 1001 Queen Street is a 466-unit mixed-use condominium tower anchored by a flagship Whole Foods Market. The extraordinary first building of Gateway Towers on Ala Moana Boulevard will bring the architecture of world-renowned architect Richard Meier to the Honolulu skyline. Ke Kilohana will bring housing targeted for local residents and a 23,000 square foot Long's Drugs to the neighborhood.
The vision for Ward Village is consistent with the master plan approved by the HCDA in 2009, which allows for up to 9.3 million square feet of mixed-use development and will include over 4,000 residences and over 1 million square feet of retail space.
Ward Village is Hawaiʻi's only LEED-ND Platinum-Certified project and the largest neighborhood development in the country to receive such a prestigious certification. The Information Center and Residential Sales Gallery is located at the iconic IBM Building. For more information, visit www.wardvillage.com.
