The Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Residences, Honolulu is helping shape the city skyline, complete with a 36-story tower offering 99 exclusive, luxury condos on the upper floors (starting at level 19). “Envisioned by a world-class design team, the bespoke collection of residences will afford privileged access to world-class amenities, combined with legendary hospitality steeped in the values of the Orient,” says James Ratkovich, managing director of Salem Partners, the project’s developer.
Situated at 1695 Kapiolani Blvd. in Waikiki’s Ala Moana District, the residences are set for completion in March 2021, with the hotel opening in May 2021. Living options include spacious and open floor plans accentuated by classic yet modern Dianna Wong-designed interiors, with each home featuring a lanai with views of the Pacific. Residents will also have access to a private amenity level replete with a pool, outdoor lounge space with cabanas and fire pits, a karaoke room and Dolby Theatre. “The catalytic building is a towering symbol of everything to come in the neighborhood,” says Ratkovich. moresidenceshonolulu.com
