Heart of Honolulu
When ProsPac Holdings Group’s 41-story Azure Ala Moana residential tower debuts at the corner of Keeaumoku and Makaloa streets in downtown Honolulu the summer of 2021, expect 330 condos and 78 rental apartments boasting HBA-designed interiors featuring stunning ocean, mountain and city views; floor-to-ceiling windows; extra-large sliding glass lanai doors; elegant 7-foot, solid core wood entry doors; and plush, high-end carpet in living rooms and bedrooms.
Then there’s the amenities: 20,000-plus square feet of retail and dining offerings on the building’s ground- and second-level plaza, plus a resort-style pool and cabanas, fitness center, club room, puppy park, guest suites for family and friends, and more. “Azure Ala Moana embodies the heart of downtown Honolulu in both physical location and strong cultural roots,” says Rick Stack, ProsPac’s executive vice president. “The residents of our urban oasis will pioneer the rediscovery of a diverse, active, and authentic neighborhood.” Sales already have begun, with prices starting at the mid 600,000’s for a one-bedroom.
