Ward Village has recently made headlines with our 988 Halekauwila project, which will offer 375 affordable homes in Honolulu.
Housing on O'ahu has long been a problem, with kama‘aina unable to buy or rent homes at affordable prices.
We can help this problem by making these homes more affordable, available sooner and for longer.
To do so, we've asked the HCDA to allow us to build rentals instead of for-sale condos, giving more local families an opportunity to live in urban Honolulu.
Under current HCDA rules, rentals are kept affordable for 15 years – much longer than two to five years for condos for sale.
