Spotlight On: Kakaako

Updated: Sep 3, 2021

When you think of Honolulu, you probably think of lazy days on the beach, swaying palm trees, fruity drinks and tiki torches by night. And while you can find all that and then some in Waikiki, travel a few minutes down Ala Moana Boulevard and you'll find yourself immersed in a new and exciting urban-living culture: Kakaako.

Hawaiian Royalty once lived in the Kaka’ako. Native Hawaiians used Kaka'ako for salt making, fishpond farming, and wetland agriculture, but until recently it has been left to lapse into a rundown warehouse district.

Not any more.

Kaka'ako has quickly become to place to be and to be seen. Gleaming condos rise like phoenixes around shimmering blue ocean and exciting new shopping and nightlife venues are popping up with speed.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll around the farmer's market while hunting for murals, or take in a 5-star meal at one of the many exciting restaurants. The heart of Ward Village is at the intersection of Auahi St. and Kamake’e St. You can find everything from bigger brand names to specialty only-in-Hawaii items.

Kaka'ako is eminently walkable and is home to two future rail stations, making owning a car optional. With downtown Honolulu a short walk to the west and Waikiki a leisurely stroll to the east, Kaka'ako is truly an exciting place to call home.

In addition to the rich shopping, eating and entertainment options, several condominiums are going up in the area. The addition of local residents will bring new life and flavor to an already vibrant place.

Some of the most popular and luxurious buildings in Kaka’ako are:
