The Howard Hughes Company has filed development permits for its 12th residential project at Ward Village, Mahana. As the final building framing Victoria Ward Park, Mahana is located on the northeast corner of Halekauwila Street and Ward Avenue. This mixed-use project is planned to include 340 residences, approximately 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and an outdoor gathering area along the new Halekauwila Street extension, which will begin at the Ward Avenue corner of the Ke Kilohana tower and will connect across Ward Avenue through to Kamakee Street. The residential tower will include a parking podium with resort-style amenities on Level 8 that are aimed toward promoting wellness and sense of community among residents and guests.
The project is envisioned to enhance the already vibrant, pedestrian-friendly residential and commercial community of Ward Village, and will create a unique and special living experience.
Meaning "warmth" or "warm feeling," Mahana will welcome residents and visitors at the 'ewa-mauka gateway to Ward Village. Mahana Ward Village will draw color, material and pattern inspirations from the natural light, warmth of the sun, the vibrant evening tones of a sunset and the stories of place and cultural tales of the significance of the sun. These infused inspirations conjure feelings of friendship, home, and community.
"Mahana Ward Village will be the perfect addition to the Halekauwila restaurant and retail corridor, continuing Ward Village’s commitment to bringing together the best of integrated parks, shops, restaurants and homes for the community,” Doug Johnstone, president, Hawaii, The Howard Hughes Corp., said in a statement.
