Talk Story #33 – Kewalo Basin, One Example of Kaka'ako's Diverse Opportunities
A peaceful setting belays the fact of activity galore available in this prime area between Honolulu and Waikiki.
Often noted in the Real Estate MLS (Multiple Listing Services) as Lower Makiki, Ala Moana, or even Honolulu, the name of Kaka’ako is being used more often now for that is indeed the area changing steadily from older commercial density toward being a modern, often luxurious condominium residential urban location.
Nearby, Kewalo Basin Park and Kewalo Basin Harbor is the latest fun place to be for the Kama’aina (residents) or visitor. Mike Inc.’s newest creation—a family oriented ice skating rink! Yes, you read that correctly! A Christmas Wonderland without the ice. Environmentally safe, it doesn’t require electricity or water for the indoor rink is created by using a special recyclable plastic material and is coated with a water-based glide enhancer. The surface is slippery and easy to skate on. So, why not?
Along Ala Moana Blvd. there is fantastic shopping, the Ala Moana Beach Park with its penisula called Magic Island (a.k.a. Aina Moana), and is super for individual fishing, swimming, picnics, jogging, tennis, and benches for the famous Hawaiian sunset watching or looking up to weekly fireworks displays.
Commercial world, or the best of worlds, at play!
