The Howard Hughes Corporation® Welcomes Residents to ʻAʻaliʻi® with Opening of Fifth Mixed-Use Development at Honolulu's Ward Village®

Acclaimed Honolulu Neighborhood Continues Transforming Island's Urban Core with Innovative Solutions for Contemporary Living

HONOLULU, Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) announced today that it has begun welcoming residents to ʻAʻaliʻi ®, the fifth residential tower to be delivered in Ward Village®, further enhancing the 60-acre coastal master planned community's transformation of Honolulu's urban core. ʻAʻaliʻi is an innovative, smart-living residential tower that exemplifies the sought-after contemporary urban island lifestyle, offering design-conscious homes while helping to address the need for workforce housing in Honolulu.

Designed by award-winning architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz in partnership with acclaimed interior designer Rottet Studio, ʻAʻaliʻi reimagines living space to empower residents with the flexibility, ease and convenience to focus on a quality, active outdoor lifestyle, with amenities designed to be an extension of one's home.

ʻAʻaliʻi offers studio, one- and two-bedroom residences which pair space-maximizing design with resort-style amenities. Optional "turnkey" packages have been thoughtfully curated with high-quality accessories and modern furniture packages tailor-made for each home. ʻAʻaliʻi provides each residence with its own private lānai, along with access to two levels of an indoor-outdoor penthouse-level Sky Deck offering 360-degree ocean and mountain views, as well as leisure and fitness amenities. Multiple indoor-outdoor activity and event spaces include a pool deck with barbecue areas, poolside cabanas, and keiki splash and play areas.

"ʻAʻaliʻi is the latest addition and fifth mixed-use development completed in Ward Village, which continues to mature and become an exceptional community," said David R. O'Reilly, Chief Executive Officer of The Howard Hughes Corporation. "The sustained sales momentum that Ward Village has seen—with ninety-one units contracted in the first half of 2021 despite travel restrictions to Hawaiʻi—is a testament to the outstanding quality and contemporary island lifestyle that Ward Village offers, along with the unique benefits of an integrated master planned community."

Ward Village is at the forefront of enduring and responsible community development—integrating striking architecture, dynamic retail, and an emphasis on public open spaces and parks. ʻAʻaliʻi was created to respond to strong market demand for new homes in Honolulu's walkable urban core, adjacent to Hawaiʻi's flagship Whole Foods Market and Ala Moana Beach Park.

"We're thrilled to welcome residents to their new homes in 'Aʻaliʻi as they become valued members of the Ward Village community," said Doug Johnstone, President, Hawaiʻi at The Howard Hughes Corporation. "In addition to its 751 homes, of which 150 are dedicated to meet the demand for workforce housing in Honolulu, ʻAʻaliʻi will introduce a new 11,000-square-foot retail streetscape integrated with Victoria Ward Park, the focal point of our neighborhood's public open space."

"I never thought homeownership in Hawaiʻi—let alone in Honolulu—would be possible for me before I found ʻAʻaliʻi," said Scott Ashlock, ʻAʻaliʻi resident. "I'm so excited to connect with my neighbors and enjoy all of the urban amenities that Ward Village provides, including new restaurants and shops, all within walking distance."

As a LEED-ND Platinum-certified master planned community, Ward Village demonstrates its commitment to responsible, mixed-use development by investing in public benefits and amenities for Honolulu's urban community. For more information, visit

About Ward Village® 
Ward Village is a 60-acre master-planned community by The Howard Hughes Corporation in the heart of Honolulu, located between downtown and Waikīkī. Honoring the distinct history of its land, Ward Village is at the forefront of sustainable community development—integrating striking architecture, culture and arts, and public open space. At full build-out, the community will include approximately one million square feet of unique retail and thousands of homes, in what Architectural Digest named "Best-Planned Community in the United States."

As a result of strong demand for new housing in urban Honolulu, Ward Village is quickly approaching sellout of its first four mixed-use residential towers—Waiea®, Anaha®, Aeʻo®, and Ke Kilohana®—transforming the popular shopping and dining district into a thriving urban neighborhood that offers ocean views and open space, including its newest outdoor gathering place, Victoria Ward Park. New residential buildings in development or under construction include ʻAʻaliʻi, Kōʻula, and Victoria Place. Since launching public sales in January 2020, Victoria Place has become the fastest-selling market tower in the history of Ward Village. Approved by the Hawaiʻi Community Development Authority (HCDA) in 2021, The Park Ward Village and Ulana Ward Village will be the newest mixed-use developments to join the neighborhood.

Ward Village is the first-ever LEED–ND Platinum-certified master-planned community in the country, and the only in Hawaiʻi. At the forefront of sustainable development, it features public amenities at a scale not offered by any other urban community in the state. For more information, visit
