Launiu Ward Village- An exciting new front-row project coming soon!
If you missed out on Victoria Place, Kalae and Alia- this will be one of the last opportunities in Ward Village to purchase in the invaluable frontrow position.
Launiu will be located at the corner of Ala Moana Blvd. and Ward Avenue where the weekend Ward Village Farmers Market is located.
The infromation is still very early being that it was just discussed at the Ala Moana-Kakaako neioghborhood meeting.
What we do know:
- 486 total residences
- 90 podium homes surrounding the parking structure
- Studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 3 bedrooms
- Approximately 20,000 sqft of commerical space
- Approximately 16,000 sqft of new open green space and landscaping
It would be interesting to see the level of finishing for this project. From what we were told it will be simular to Koula or The Park Ward Village.
I feel it could present a much more affordable option compared to Victoria Place and Kalae, while being in a central location between Ward Village and Salt Kakaako neighborhoods.
With the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) pushing for their opportunity to develop Kakaako Makai or what they are calling Hakuone- its important to keep in mind that there could be addtitional development on the oceanside of Ala Moana Blvd. with a potential of a changing viewplane.
Launiu will be in the middle of each access points of Ward Village and Salt Kakaako and potentionally additional development at Hakuone.
