Our Kaka’ako is aimed towards building a progressive community that will encourage the evolution of the island culture in a sustainable neighborhood. This neighborhood is being developed as a mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhood with a variety of housing options right in the urban core. With walkability and alternate forms of transport encouraged, this is the perfect spot if you work downtown.
With over 50,000 sq ft of open space and a neighborhood built around walkability, residents have access to a wide range of unique restaurants, bars, and local breweries. SALT At Our Kaka’ako is an entire city block comprising 85,000 Sq Ft of specially selected retail, restaurant, and mixed-use space.
You may never want to leave - but if you do, the golden sands of Ala Moana beach park are only a mile and a half away.
A Neighborhood Built Around Walkability
Our Kaka’ako is on south Oahu, between downtown Honolulu and Kewalo Basin Harbor.
This entire neighborhood is built with walking in mind. Not only do most of the towers themselves hold amenities of their own - the neighborhood is full of unique boutiques, shops, and open spaces. Built with roots in Hawaiian cultural values, Our Kaka’ako is a popular place to live & visit.
SALT At Our Kaka’ako is one example of what Kaka’ako has to offer. SALT won the 2018 Shopping Center Of The Year Award (SCOTY) and hails itself as “Honolulu’s epicenter for local culture, food, shopping, and innovative events.” Comprising 85,000 square-feet of retail, restaurant, and mixed-use space, you could spend hours perusing your options and admiring the art.
It’s not just local options nearby, though - matching with Hawaii’s incredibly diverse population, there are all kinds of stores and restaurants. Right across from Keauhou Lane is H-Mart Kaka’ako, the only Hawaii location of this popular Korean-American supermarket chain. They carry specialty goods imported from South Korea, Japan, and more.
This whole area is full of a wide variety of diverse restaurant options. It truly is a foodie’s paradise, where you can eat a different cuisine every day of the week and then hit your favorite brewery. Aloha Beer Company is locally owned and has this fun industrial feel to it and a neat outdoor patio area with hanging lights.
Island Lifestyle Opportunities
If you’d rather make dinner at home - the Kaka’ako Farmers’ Market is a great way to support the local economy. It carries food, health and wellness items, pet items, items from local artisans, and more. The vision of this market is to create a supportive environment for local businesses to help improve community health and cultural awareness.
There are so many opportunities to get out and about in the great outdoors in this area. Right around the corner is Mother Waldron Playground as your first option. A bit further on is Kaka’ako Waterfront Park - it doesn’t have a sandy beach but does have a theater and a promenade. Don’t fret, Ala Moana Beach Park and its golden sand beach is only a 15 minute walk away - just past Kewalo Basin Harbor.
