At 36 stories tall, Waiea is a luxury residential tower and part of the Ward Village master-planned community. The building's contemporary design was completed by architects James K.M. Cheng and WCIT Architecture, with interior design by Tony Ingrao. Completed in 2016, Waiea brought 171 1-3BR units (with some penthouse units having more bedrooms) to the Kaka'ako area, while also featuring LEED certification, energy-efficient LED lighting, and gorgeous landscaping. Alongside its sibling Anaha condominium, it was the second project completed by the Howard Hughes Corporation for the Ward Village neighborhood.

Waiea is located in an excellent spot in Honolulu, on the first parcel of land fronting the Kewalo Harbor and Ala Moana Beach Park. As a result, residents of Waiea have rapid and direct access to these locations, which means that residents are able to easily spend time outdoors walking pets, exercising, hosting get-togethers with friends and family, or just enjoying the Hawaiian sun.
Not to mention, Waiea is located within Ward Village, which hosts a variety of great in-neighborhood amenities like the Ward Village Shopping Mall, the South Shore Market, Consolidated Theatres Ward, and the largest Whole Foods Market in the State of Hawai'i. This makes life in this area incredibly convenient and allows residents to easily acquire grocery needs by foot, given that the Whole Foods Market is a 2-minute walk from outside Waiea's doorstep.
Perhaps most impressive, though, is Waiea's proximity to the Ala Moana Center, which is the largest open-air shopping center in the world. This center is filled with hundreds of stores, from design boutiques to chain stores, small shops, restaurants, and even year-round live performances. All of this is just a 10-minute walk from Waiea, or a 3-minute drive if you prefer to travel by car.
