1500 Kapiolani Boulevard - Planned Condotel In Ala Moana

1500 Kapiolani Condotel Development Mockup

1500 Kapiolani Boulevard is a new condo-hotel development in Honolulu being built to take advantage of the numerous site opportunities available in Ala Moana. First and foremost among these is the desire to create a simple and iconic form with a two-tower scheme and connecting “sky garden,” befitting the prestige of Kapiolani Boulevard. When complete, 1500 Kapiolani will be visible from Ala Wai Boat Harbor and other areas of the city.

Each tower has four corner units per level from the 15th floor up to maximize views. This, along with the two-tower design, allows for views of the ocean, the lights of Honolulu, Diamond Head, and the mountains. The units will be a mixture of residential and hotel units, with separate amenities for guests and residents.

1500 Kapiolani will be located adjacent to Walgreens and directly across from the Ala Moana Center, the largest open-air shopping center in the world.

About 1500 Kapiolani, Mixed-Use Tower

1500 Kapiolani Sight Corridors

1500 Kapiolani is a mixed-use twin-tower project, designed by [AU]workshop and developed by Salem Partners. The aim of this project was to capitalize on the site opportunities presented. High focus opportunities among these were maximizing views in all cardinal directions and preserving wind corridors, while creating a design befitting the prestige of Kapiolani Boulevard.

The two tower design of 1500 Kapiolani fulfills those. Breezes from mountain to ocean flow between and around the towers, while the design allows for gorgeous mountain to ocean views. There are 8 corner units per typical level - 4 units per tower - on floors 15 through 33, intended to take advantage of those views.

1500 Kapiolani was designed with twin amenity decks on levels 7 and 34 and a dog run on level 14.

1500 Kapiolani Condo Units

1500 Kapiolani Mockup

The current number of units in 1500 Kapiolani is unknown, as projects like this can go through multiple stages prior to construction. The application for 1500 Kapiolani in April 2017 called for 444 condo-hotel units, 6 residential penthouse units, and 78 affordable rental units. The original designs show the affordable rental units located in a side structure atop the pool deck.

More recently, however, [AU]workshop has listed the 1500 Kapiolani project on their portfolio as having 8 corner units per typical floor on floors 15 through 33, conflicting with the previous design application.

Not much is known about the interior of units at 1500 Kapiolani. This tower is being highly optimized to give its residents spectacular views. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.
