One of the most recent approvals by Kamehameha Schools is Kali'u, an upcoming residential development to be added to the Our Kaka'ako neighborhood. The development is planned to be built on "Block G" of the Our Kaka'ako map, which places Kali'u directly next to SALT At Our Kaka'ako and also directly across the street from the upcoming Kahuina condominium. This 400-foot-tall tower will add 330 market-priced units to the area as well as 42,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space to the Our Kaka'ako community.
ProsPac will develop the project, which is also expected to bring an approximate $500 million in economic impact to the city, as well as create 237 net new jobs and over $30 million in state and federal tax contributions.
Kali'u will be developed on Kaka'ako's "Block G" lot, which currently sits between Coral Street, Cooke Street, Auahi Street, and Ala Moana Boulevard. As previously stated, residents of Kali'u will be located directly next to SALT At Our Kaka'ako, which is a large and immensely popular hangout spot filled with various boutiques, restaurants, cafés, and more. Likewise, Kali'u will be located near various incredible restaurants located within walking distance.

As for other major shopping spots (specifically grocery stores), a Down to Earth Organic & Natural store is located beneath Kahuina's Kaka'ako neighbor Keauhou Place just down the street. There is also an H-Mart, a popular Korean American grocery store, just across Pohukaina Street from Down to Earth. Perhaps most notably, though, is the Whole Foods Market located within Ward Village underneath the Ae'o condominium. This multi-story Whole Foods, as well as the rest of the public Ward Village amenities and resources, will be less than a 15-minute walk or a 5-minute drive from the residence.
This incredibly convenient access to neighborhood amenities is only extended when considering Ala Moana Beach Park, which is a 12-minute walk or 3-minute drive away, and the majorly popular Ala Moana Center, which is a 5-minute drive away.

Little is known about the amenities to be featured within Kali'u at this time, but we can expect amenities similar to its Kaka'ako counterparts (such as a pool, fitness center, spa, etc.). More information about the amenities will be disclosed here as information is released.
Similar to the amenities, little is known about the residences within Kali'u at this time. However, condominiums around the area typically have studio to 3-bedroom units available for residents, so something similar can be expected for this condominium.
