Will Oahu’s First Ritz-Carlton Be as Successful as Trump Tower Waikiki?

(Honolulu, HI) The interest level has exceeded expectations for The Ritz-Carlton Waikiki®. The buzz in town is that it is going to be the “most popular” newest development this summer when it begins sales in June. Though still in the early stages of design – and public details are limited from the developer – I have the scoop on this much-anticipated project in Honolulu.

The Success of Trump Tower Waikiki

This brings back memories of the Trump Tower Waikiki process in 2006. Many of my clients were anxious to own a piece of the luxury pie then, and I was able to garner eight units from that historic Trump condo lottery.

It was an exciting time for home buyers from around the world who participated in a simultaneous LIVE lottery in Hawaii via satellite with Japan. Trump Tower Waikiki was SOLD OUT in 8 hours. Many members of my VIP group were the fortunate ones who opened escrow and won 8 spots in that lottery. A virtual tour of one of the original condos closed is provided: Hawaii’s luxury high-rise.

Trump Tower, make room for the new building on the block on prime Waikiki real estate. Though it may not be a lottery process, expect a hana hou, which means “one more time” in Hawaiian, as excitement builds for The Ritz-Carlton Waikiki.
