If I were to live in a high-rise condo, it would have to be at Regency At Kahala—built in 1969 on Bishop Estate leasehold land adjacent to the post office and the Kahala mall.
In 1967, when I was 10 years old, my family relocated from the mainland to Hawaii and purchased a home in Kahala. I remember my grandparents coming to visit us in ’69, and during their stay, were looking at purchasing a vacation home—a new condo at Regency At Kahala for about $50K, leasehold. The fee simple interest in the land under the Regency ended up being offered to the condo owners in the mid-90’s for approximately $100K.
Regency At Kahala 11C
Now, there is a fee simple 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo (#11C) with Diamond Head/ocean views (MLS# 1113922) on the market for $1,350,000. This unit just came on the market 3 weeks ago, and though it is dated and needs to be remodeled, it has good bones and an excellent vantage. This unit has A/C, an open kitchen, granite counter tops, an extended living room, and much more.
Regency At Kahala 11A view
There is also a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom condo (#11A) with Koko Head/ocean views (MLS# 1113539) looking right over the Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers Kahala office building that came on the market 4 weeks ago for $1,595,000. At just over 1,600 sq. ft., it has recently been remodeled with real oak wood floors, a built-in entertainment center, new carpet and paint, and granite counters in the kitchen.

Currently, there is one unit in escrow—a one bedroom/one bathroom (#13B) that came on the market 6 weeks ago at $895,000 and was sold in 18 days, which happens to be the average days on market for Regency At Kahala condos during the past 6 months.
