Ward Village

Honolulu, Hawaii


Ward Village is a 60-acre coastal master planned community in the heart of Honolulu, located between downtown and Waikiki. Drawing on The Howard Hughes Corporation’s approach to authentic community building, we are integrating Hawaii's culture and history as foundations for creating another extraordinary community. Our master plan entitlements allow for up to 9.3 million square feet of mixed use development, and at completion, the community will include more than 4,000 residences and over one million square feet of new retail shopping.

As the largest urban development site in Honolulu, Ward Village represents a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to transform an older urban core into a much needed and sought after gathering place for all of Oahu. Upon completion we will deliver over 4,000 new homes to a market whose supply continues to fall short of demand. We also plan to deliver over one million square feet of retail space, making Ward Village the premier outdoor shopping district in Hawai'i and a truly exceptional destination for locals and visitors.

As the largest LEED-ND Platinum certified development in the country, Ward Village is at the forefront of sustainable development and will include one-of-a-kind public amenities that will serve as a sustainable foundation for the community. These public amenities include a planned four-acre park, new tree-lined sidewalks and bike lanes and access to the natural beauty and activities of the Pacific Ocean through the adjacent Ala Moana Beach Park and Kewalo Harbor. Our 35-year lease of the Kewalo Harbor allows us the unique opportunity to control and protect it along with the Hawaii Community Development Authority.

Our mission is to create a neighborhood that enriches the lives of everyone who experiences Ward Village. The carefully curated mix of leading design, retail experiences, public spaces and cultural programming will create a place unlike any other in Hawai'i.

Over 1,100 residences are already contracted for sale. Waiea, the first completed residential tower, welcomed its first residents and anchor tenant Nobu in late 2016. Three high-rise residential buildings are currently under construction – Anaha, Ae‘o and Ke Kilhoana– and will be home to internationally acclaimed brands such as Merriman’s Restaurant and a flagship Whole Foods Market.
