Though one of the older condominiums in Honolulu, Hokua is considered the first real luxury condominium in the Honolulu/Kaka'ako area. Completed in 2006, Hokua was developed by the MacNaughton Group, the Kobayashi Group, and Alexander & Baldwin. This development brought 248 new luxury homes to the neighborhood of Kaka'ako, of which overlook Ala Moana Beach Park, the Pacific Ocean, the surrounding cityscape, and even have partial views of the Ko'olau Mountains and Diamond Head.

Hokua is located directly across the street from Ward Village, with the famous and historic IBM building across Queen Street from the tower. A bit further down Queen Street is the Ward Village shopping mall and the South Shore Market, which are home to various local boutiques, international chains, popular restaurants and cafés, and more. The same can be said for the Ward Centre, which is located a few hundred feet down Auahi Street from Hokua.
One block over brings you to the Ward Entertainment Center, where the immensely popular Consolidated Theatres Ward location sits, as well as Bucca di Beppo and Dave & Busters. Across Halekauwila Street from the entertainment center is the largest Whole Foods Market in the State of Hawai'i, which is located directly underneath Ward Village's Ae'o condominium. As a result, grocery shopping is incredibly convenient and simple for residents of Hokua, who can walk to Whole Foods in just 6 minutes (or drive there in only 2 minutes).
One of the most impressive parts of Hokua's location, though, is its proximity to Ala Moana Beach Park and the Ala Moana Center. Ala Moana Beach Park is directly across Ala Moana Boulevard from Hokua, just a couple of hundred feet away from the Ala Moana tennis courts. For residents who enjoy exercising outside, playing with pets in the park, holding small get-togethers and picnics with friends and family, or just enjoying the Hawaiian sun, this is the ideal location. As for the Ala Moana Center, Hokua residents need only travel 5 minutes on foot in order to reach the largest open-air shopping center in the world. Here, Hokua residents are able to visit the hundreds of boutiques, stores, restaurants, and more located within this large shopping mall.
This type of convenience is uncommon and highly sought-after, and Hokua residents are able to regularly utilize these amenities without effort.
Hokua residents also have the luxury of enjoying incredible on-site amenities, which include:
Also located on the ground level of Hokua are businesses like the Bank of Hawai'i, Panya Bistro & Bakery, and Tango Contemporary Cafe.
