BizJournals: The BLOCK 803 Waimanu
If you ask Oahu residents what’s the hottest neighborhood in real estate right now, and they’re likely to say Kakaako – long known as a gritty semi-industrial district with few housing options, now being reborn as a vibrant residential community. Ask Oahu residents what their number one gripe about their life in paradise, and you’ll likely get one answer: The price of housing. (Well, maybe that’s a tie with traffic that just seems to get worse every year). The BLOCK 803 Waimanu is a new condominium development that combines the best of all worlds and answers to these problems to create a smart, urban community in a rapidly evolving neighborhood. The BLOCK will offer the carefree convenience of living in town with true affordability. This 7-story 153 unit project has young professionals and first-time homebuyers in mind – but will appeal to anyone who wants to live in the center of the emerging urban center and wants a modern lifestyle of walkability, connectivity and fun. Kakaako has quickly become Honolulu’s hot spot for living, working, playing and recreation and will continue to attract thinkers, doers and makers in the years to come.
- Studio units range from 338 – 487 SF (some with rec deck / Juliet balcony) and will start in the $200Ks
- Studio/1 bedroom 1.5 bath units range from 476-798 SF (some with Juliet balcony) will start in the low $300Ks
- Two-bedrooms and Loft style units will start from the $400Ks.
The BLOCK features a sleek, modern architectural design aesthetic typically found in boutique high-end condominiums, minus the price tag. No skimping on finishes here – you’ll enjoy GE kitchen appliances, Bosch washer/dryers and Carrara marble countertops in all units. Studios will come with barn doors to enhance flex space and create a bedroom sanctuary. You’ll feel good about The BLOCK’s green features, too: community gardens, bicycle storage, and high efficiency lighting. Lounge and enjoy the view from three rooftop decks, or hang out in the community lounge. Pets up to 35 pounds are welcome!
