Whole Foods Delivers Convenience in Kakaako

Whole Foods in Kakaako is now open for business. It’s a welcome addition to the community made popular by the Ward Village master plan. Where convenience is a must, this urban location of Whole Foods is now delivering good food, easy parking, and a place for neighborhood residents to get together. Located in the AE’O condo building and within a short distance of other residences, the location of the new Whole Foods in Kakaako couldn’t be more perfect. This is a huge benefit to urban dwellers who want to reduce their time spent in cars. With a growing demand for more walkable/accessible neighborhoods, Whole Foods with the new Ward Village is getting high marks for its central location.

Unlike in many suburbs where a car is a necessity, many Kakaako residents enjoy a car-free lifestyle. That’s not to say that most don’t own cars; they still do. The car, however, has become optional and no longer a necessity for everyday living. Today’s buyers often look for neighborhood features that will make their lives easier and more fun. The lifestyle is just as important as the actual property.

With the central urban location, nearby residents can enjoy fresh goods daily. Unlike in many urban and suburban locations where the nearest store is miles away, there is no need to stock up with a week’s worth of groceries when living in Kakaako. Whole Foods is literally minutes away from many of the Honolulu condo residents who can grab a bite to eat or get dinner together at a moments notice.

I’ve followed Hawaii Life over the past 18 plus months and like the format and expertise of staff. I’d like to receive alerts of 3 bdrm condos in planned communities like this one and others in Honolulu. Price range between $525-600k if possible only FS. Also, include total monthly total monthly HOA and other misc. monthly fees to give a full monthly outlay. I plan to purchase in Honolulu by next summer but continue to live in Florida for another 18-24 months working before permanent move in 2021.
