Anaha is one of the first buildings in Honolulu’s Ward Village—a multi-phased 60-acre development that will achieve LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) certification for all phases of the entire project. The 783,000 SF luxury condominium tower will include 311 units, ranging in size from studios to three-bedroom units, penthouse and grand penthouse units, and above grade parking for 559 cars. The roof level of the podium above the garage contains an extensive landscaped plaza, a swimming pool, tennis court, volleyball court, and other recreation areas.
The tower itself will pursue the LEED BD+C certification. Located in a mixed-use district, the tower is well-served by public transportation. The vast use of vegetated local landscape on open areas provides both opportunities for recreation and socialization while improving storm water management and reducing local heat island effect. Drip irrigation systems and water efficient plumbing fixtures will substantially reduce water usage. The building uses many passive strategies for energy efficiency.
The high performance glass has a heat recovery system that will be used to heat the pool, and floor to ceiling windows provide abundant daylight and expansive views to typically impenetrable spaces.
