Talk Story #52 – Ala Moana / Kakaako is the Center of Oahu Activity
Thanksgiving and Black Friday have come and gone and seeing the full parking lots of both the Ward Center Shops and the huge Ala Moana Shopping Center, I realized again, what a totally prime area the Kaka’ako and Ala Moana areas are.
Ala Moana Shopping Center – parking at a premium
So many must drive distances to enjoy the shopping, the beach park amenities, or superb concerts or fairs at the Blaisdell Arena/Concert Hall, or even the Convention Center activities. These are all centrally located between the city of Honolulu and famous Waikiki along the coast with its commercial or private marinas.

The Moana Pacific Offers Condos at a Wide Price Range
The popularity, demand, and activity of this thriving and changing area is causing a real estate market “happening.” One example is the striking oval twin towers of the Moana Pacific condominium with its wide price range of available properties. The Kaka’ako neighborhoods’ median sales price in the mid-$600,000’s causes a strong demand with an avid interest in the newer luxury high rise condominiums.

Ala Moana/Kakaako – A Great Place to Live on Oahu
It is time to consider this great location! Busy yes, often noisy, yes…BUT it has not stopped the growing mix of many international owners now blending with the the mainland buyers, as second home, investors, and our downsizing Hawaii residents, all desiring a quality and carefree lifestyle, and the very fact that they can leave the car behind and enjoy a walk or quick and easy bus ride nearby. In this harried and hurried world, what could be better then that?
Contact me to be put on the list for more information regarding the recently announced ONE Ala Moana. A totally unique 17-story condominium to be built high above the Nordstrom department store at Ala Moana Shopping center.
