Sky Ala Moana is an exciting new condo development coming to life in the Ala Moana neighborhood of Honolulu, just off Kapiolani Boulevard in the area directly adjacent to the popular Ward Village in Kakaako. It was just announced that the sales gallery is now open and owner occupant sales will begin soon!
The Sky Ala Moana project is unique since it includes both a residential condominium tower and a separate hotel tower. This will be the first hotel emerging in the Ala Moana neighborhood since the Ala Moana Hotel was built.
The Sky Ala Moana Residential Condo Tower - Sky West
The residential tower, aptly named as Sky West, will be located on the Ewa (west) side of the property and will include approximately 176 one-bedroom condos and 214 two- bedroom condos. Prices start in the high $500,000s and with 2-bedroom units starting in the mid $700,000s. All units in the residential tower will contain lanais.
Sky Ala Moana sales is happening soon with the Developer's Public Report the only thing that they are waiting approval on. If you are interested in a owner occupant or investor unit at Sky Ala Moana, please register your interest in the form below and a representative of UrbanOahu.com / Locations LLC will contact you and keep you informed of the sales process.
The Sky Ala Moana Hotel Tower - Sky East
The hotel tower, or Sky East, will be located on the Diamond Head (east) side of the property and will contain approximately 225 studio units, 50 1-bedroom units and 25 two-bedroom units.
Originally the thought was that Sky East would be a condo hotel with individual units available for purchase, similar to Ala Moana Hotel. This has changed and now the Sky East Tower is being marketed for purchase as a single entity and to be sold privately by the Developer, Avalon Development, to a 4-star caliber hotel operator.
The condo hotel concept, also known as “condotels”, is attractive to investors since the unit can be rented out on a daily or weekly basis, which increases the investors return on their investment.
The amenity deck is located on the 8th floor and has appropriately been named the Sky Terrace.
As one of the largest outdoor spaces of its kind in the area, the Sky Terrace features BBQ cabanas, landscaped green space, lap pool, dog run, meeting rooms, private dining rooms, playground, spa, fitness center (indoor and outdoor), and much more in one spacious acre.
Located about 75 feet above the street level, the Sky Terrace will be well above the beautiful tree-lined street of Kapiolani Boulevard.
And, since the property will be in urban Honolulu, look for the developer to line the Terrace with nice trees and landscaping to create a sound barrier and a private feel to the recreation area. It is anticipated that this green space will be much like the amenity decks at One Ala Moana and Park Lane.
Sky Ala Moana Location
Located at 1388 Kapiolani Boulevard in Honolulu, Sky Ala Moana's proximity to world-renowned Ala Moana Center will be an added bonus to both the residents of Sky West and visitors in Sky East. As Honolulu's premier shopping destination, Ala Moana Center is home to the world's most popular brand names, in addition to the largest variety of dining experiences one can imagine.
Some Ala Moana Center highlights are:
The location will also be very close to the highly anticipated Ala Moana Rail Station which will allow visitors the option of catching the rail for a quick 20 minute ride to and from the airport.
