Sky Ala Moana Condo Tower and Hotel
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. The sales gallery is now open and owner occupant sales will begin soon!
This 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.
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 Floor Plans
The Sky West Tower will feature 390 one and two bedroom condominium units, each of which is designed to optimize floor space.
Two bedroom units feature a spacious living and dining area and 2 baths. The lanai offers ample room to relax and enjoy the stunning views of downtown Honolulu and Diamond Head.
One bedroom units sport a kitchen complete with new appliances. Guests and residents benefit from large living rooms with a lanai and luxurious bedrooms with floor to ceiling windows that look out upon the magic of Oahu.
All units come with 2 full baths and washer/dryer combination, so you have all the amenities you need at your fingertips.
The Sky Residences at Ala Moana will feature floor to ceiling windows to get the full effect of the stunning panoramic views. Kitchens will be furnished with new appliances and special attention given to the quality of the fixtures.
The room’s timeless textures and clean lines will integrate the food prep areas with living and dining areas for smooth transitions throughout the space. Expect Hansgrobe fixtures, Bosch appliances, and carefully chosen pieces on display in the cabinetry.
Professionally chosen décor will light up each room and leave you feeling refreshed after a short time in your new space. You’ll want for no modern convenience in your Sky Residence.
Sky Ala Moana Availability
The response to Sky Ala Moana has exceeded expectations. Buyers and investors claimed more than 70% of available units even before breaking ground for the new structures. If you’re interested in purchasing one of the remaining units, register now before they’re all gone.
Sky Ala Moana’s appeal comes as no surprise. After all, the condo hotel is set to rise in one of the most convenient, compelling areas of the city. When complete, it will give residents easy access to the full scope of urban convenience, complete with stunning views on all sides.
Sales will be happening soon with the Developer's Public Report the only thing that they are waiting approval on.

Sky Ala Moana Prices
While many units have already sold, several are still available for purchase. You’ll find 1-bedroom, 1-bath units priced at a minimum of $568,800, while 2-bedroom, 2-bath units range from $785,300 to over $1 million.
Sky Ala Moana unit prices are consistent with the local real estate market value. Prices reflect the central location, abundant amenities and attractions both within the units and in the surrounding city, and the quality of the development.
Sky Ala Moana Affordable Housing
The developers of Sky Ala Moana are committed to providing equal access to these state-of-the-art units. Therefore, 84 units available in the Sky East portion of the development will be designated as affordable housing for residents earning 100% to 120% of the local median income.
As part of the development agreement, and to discourage speculators from trying to gain access to these units, Sky Flats must keep their affordable status for 30 years minimum.
Sky Ala Moana Lottery
While Sky East will feature Sky Flats’ affordable housing and 300 luxury hotel rooms, Sky West, will be entirely residential. It contains 390 1- and 2-bedroom units with different layouts that make each space unique.
All units on even-numbered floors in Sky West are reserved exclusively for owner-occupants. Those who wish to access these units registered with the developer and participated in a lottery held on April 1, 2019. The lottery’s success resulted in the vast majority of owner-occupied units sold at that time.
Views from Sky Ala Moana Condo Tower
One of the most exciting parts of the Sky Ala Moana Condo Tower will be the awe-inspiring views. To the east, residents can watch the sun rise over the iconic landscape of Diamond Head. On clear days from the upper floors, you’ll see Molokai and Maui in the distance.
To the north, the Honolulu Watershed Forest Reserve spreads far and wide around majestic volcanic peaks. To the west lies beautiful and historic Pearl Harbor and beyond that the Waianae Forest.
Lastly, to the south, the Pacific Ocean’s endless expanse extends to the horizon, ready for you to get lost in the rippling blue view. Once you’ve seen the views from Sky Ala Moana, you won’t want to leave.
Sky Ala Moana Maintenance Fees
The Sky Ala Moana monthly maintenance fees are expected to be approximately $0.95 per square foot. These fees will cover electricity, water, internet, cable, and sewer charges.
Upon completion of the project, the fees may be subject to slight changes. However, the $0.95 per square foot number is currently the most accurate figure.
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.
Sky East will feature breathtaking views of Diamond Head, downtown Honolulu, and the Oahu coast.
Owing to its perfect central location and suites fully furnished and complete with amenities, Sky East will quickly become a destination of choice. It’s the ideal place for discerning leisure travelers, business travelers, and relatives visiting residents of Sky West who want to vacation in luxury, style, and comfort.

Above the hustle and bustle of Kapiolani Blvd, the Sky Terrace awaits those in need of relaxation eight floors above. Here, you can relish the fresh air while you catch up with friends and neighbors.
The Sky Terrace’s 54,000 square feet of outdoor space will satisfy your desire to go out and stay in all at once and enrich the Sky Ala Moana experience. The Sky Terrace encompasses both Sky West and Sky East and combines the feeling of a lively urban park with that of a private resort and sets no limits when it comes to relaxation and rejuvenation.
Sky Terrace Amenities
Sky Terrace amenities add a new dimension to the concept of urban living. Sky Terrace’s bbq cabanas, meditation gardens, a playground for the kids, and a day spa ensure the entire family has something to love about this luxury living space.
The Great Lawn exudes the essence of Central Park and the Grounds of the Imperial Palace. Participate in low-impact exercise in the lap pool or kick back next to the enormous heated saltwater pool. Talk to locals and vacationers alike at the Social Club.
Even your dog reaps the benefits of Sky Terrace with the dog run, where he can stretch his legs alone or meet new dog pals. Sky Terrace’s optimal design excludes no one.
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.
