Originally called Moana Vista, construction on the later renamed Pacifica Honolulu condominium was stopped during the financial crisis of 2007/2008, and was later picked up and finished in 2011 by development firm OliverMcMillan (which has since been acquired by Brookfield Residential Properties Inc.). The original designs for the building, under the direction of OliverMcMillan, were then expanded and greatly improved upon, creating new finishes and luxurious amenities and thus increasing the excitement for the project. The project brought 492 new 1- to 3-bedroom units to the neighborhood, with 8 units on each floor being makai (ocean) facing and the other 4 being mauka (mountain) facing.

Pacifica Honolulu is 46 stories tall, with 12 units per floor starting on floor 6. Although there are no lanais featured in any of the units, the residences do feature central air conditioning, washer and dryer hookups, and some of the windows open. In fact, the large windows are one of the highlights of the residences, as residents will find that their homes are filled with natural light throughout the day, and likewise receive gorgeous views of the surrounding cityscape, the Ko'olau Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean (based on your unit).
