East Oahu Residential Project Breaks Ground A Hawaiian blessing ceremony was held Oct. 5 for Hale Ka Lae, an upscale residential development in East Oahu. Meaning “House at the Point,” Hale Ka Lae will be constructed on a three-acre parcel that will house 242 homes ranging in price from $700,000 to $3.8 million and appointed with top-of-the-line appliances and distinctive amenities. “Hale Ka Lae aims to set the new standard for upscale residences in Hawaii,” says Michael Greco, chief operating officer for developer Hale Ka Lae LLC. “The total development will push an excess of $350 million dollars into this site, creating approximately 350-400 construction jobs, plus employment for a broad spectrum of Hawaii businesses.” Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz of San Francisco and Chicago with local firm WCIT Architecture, the residences provide a seamless flow of indoor and outdoor living. The one, two and three-bedroom residences, many with den options, range from 980 to 3,065 square feet and have outdoor lanai from 90 to 966 square feet. Amenities include a lagoon-style pool, a fitness center with sauna, an indoor golf simulator and surfboard storage.

This park will be conveyed to the community by Hale Ka Lae through The Trust for Public Land, ensuring the protection of valuable cultural and natural resources for future generations to enjoy. Hanwha E&C Corp is the general contractor and Philpotts Interiors will be doing the interior design. The anticipated project finish is the end of 2013.
