Real Estate of Kaka'ako
As a modern, developed little city, Kaka’ako buildings are new, luxurious and sophisticated. The vast majority of Kaka’ako housing is new condominiums in Ward Village, including Waiea, Anaha, A’eo, Victoria Place coming soon, and more. As most of the condos were constructed in the last decade, they bear a striking resemblance to one another and feature top-notch architecture paired remarkably with elegant, modern design.
Ward Village of Kaka'ako
Named after the Ward family, they were stewards of this land for over a century from the 1870s until 2002; cultivating the area to serve as an oasis between the growing centers of population in Honolulu and Waikiki. Ward Village is now known as “Hawai’i’s Premier Master-Planned Community”, beautifully nestled on 60-acres of prime coastal property and uniquely situated between downtown Honolulu to the west and internationally renowned Ala Moana Center and Waikiki to the east. Ward Village is building on the legacy of the Ward Family, stewards of the land for over a century, creating a neighborhood and gathering place that embraces all.

"Water of Life" For centuries, water has been one of the most treasured resources of the Hawaiian people, and the unique architecture of Waiea honors its essential life-giving role. Waiea, the Hawaiian term for “water of life”, refers to the building’s sweeping, water-inspired glass façade and links the structure to the importance of water in Hawai‘i’s coastal landscape. Consistent with the architecture throughout Ward Village, Waiea’s design incorporates the unique history and culture of the area. [Courtesy of Ward Village]
"Reflection of Light" From its undulating glass façade evoking the rhythm of the sea, to its elegant interiors and breathtaking vistas, Anaha uplifts and inspires, reflecting a vision of nature and design living in harmony. [Courtesy of Ward Village]
Victoria Ward- Coming Soon
Born in 1846 to a family descended from ali‘I (Hawaiian royalty), Victoria Ward was a firm supporter and friend to Queen Lili‘uokalani. She was a champion of Hawai‘i, particularly after the overthrow of the Queen in the 1890s. Throughout this uncertain period of historic change, Victoria Ward sustained the islands’ host culture by opening her home to Hawaiian music, traditional gatherings, and the continued practice of Hawaiian arts and ʻŌlelo (language).
Remaking a special place requires a unique blend of boldness towards the future and a respect of what came before. That is what Victoria Ward achieved when she converted this rural parcel of land into her abundant family estate. Now more than a century later, that legacy lives on at Victoria Place, a collection of homes that bears her name out of a deep respect and gratitude for her vision.
With great intention, we carry forward the ideas of a connection and love for the land, gracious island living, and hospitality with family at the heart. Whether greeting the dawn at the Sunrise Pool, or creating memories with loved ones on the Sunset Lānai, be ushered into harmonious natural living that continues this historic legacy.
