In Hawaiian, “wai honua’ translates to ‘Waters Of The Earth.’ This is a reference to how the land in Kakaako was used in previous times for holding ponds where fish were bred and raised. Other natural resources in the area, such as Hala, were utilized in everyday activities - creating a place where aloha flourished and the people had a connection to the land.

Waihonua's developers have attempted to preserve this connection in the design of this tower.

Where Is Waihonua?

To the west is Ward Village, a 60-acre master-planned Kakaako community full of shopping centers, boutique restaurants, shops, residential towers, and open green spaces. Ward Village first broke ground in January 2011, with new residentials towers both planned and currently under construction.

To the east is Ala Moana, a mixed-use district that features a popular beach and several residential condo towers. One of the most prominent features of this area is the Ala Moana Center, the largest open-air shopping center in the world.
