Ward Village vision in Kakaako going on display

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:36 p.m. HST, Jan 24, 2014

Howard Hughes Corp., the developer of an envisioned 60-acre community in Kakaako called Ward Village with 22 condominium towers and retail, is showcasing that vision with a new sales and information center in the historic IBM Building.

The info center is slated to open by Friday, and includes an interactive scale model of Honolulu between Diamond Head and Sand Island, a small theater and historical exhibits created in conjunction with Bishop Museum that tell about the Ward property's past back to pre-Western contact. A restaurant is also being built next to the info center, though an operator has yet to be selected.

Sales of condo units in the project's first two towers began last month by appointment. Model units are built out on the IBM Building's sixth floor.

They should have had HART give them a scale model of where the train is supposed to run nearby.... along with the soundtrack, of course.

This is absolutely horrible. What an eye sore. Did they even talk to the community / legislators / councilman before they planned this? I'll be at the front of the protest to stop this from happening.

HH Corp, you're destroying Hawaii. What a shame. Personally, I'll be moving off Oahu to avoid being anywhere near this monstrosity. Come on people, why are we letting folks with no appreciation of the 'aina or sense of aloha ruin our home?!!

I want to buy there hopefully I will get a lottery spot to make my dream come true. Since I live on prospect now, I'll rent my condo out and buy new. I can't wait.
