Honolulu – Kaka‘ako Lifestyle Simply Makes Sense

When it comes to Honolulu neighborhoods, the Kaka‘ako condo lifestyle makes a lot of sense. Kaka‘ako is hands down the best neighborhood in Honolulu when it comes to convenience. Shopping, the beach, and amenities are all in one place. Kaka‘ako is loved by so many people. The neighborhood is growing like crazy, and things are going to get even better.

The Convenience

Ala Moana Center entrance

I found myself in a pinch yesterday. I had a BBQ to be at in 30 min, with no BBQ food at home. I grabbed my keys and decided to quickly walk over to Foodland at Ala Moana Center. As I was walking, I looked at the cars, and the Friday night traffic, and realized how happy I was that I was not in any of them. I knew before I made it to the store (all of 5 minutes away), that I would get my groceries quickly, and that I would be enjoying the BBQ with my family and friends shortly after. No stress, no wasted time driving, and I even added a little exercise to my day. It’s so simple, yet so amazing. The convenience of the living in Kaka‘ako condos is worth its weight in gold.


As I walked into the store, as always, I was greeted by a beautiful display of fresh fruit and vegetables, a salad bar, a poke station, and the other food departments. The biggest challenge was deciding what I was going to get for dinner.


While the food displays were beautiful, that is not what caught my eye this time. I realized how special my simple grocery outing was when I looked over at the deli and wine bar. It was full of people laughing, chatting, and enjoying their wine… all in a grocery store. No one looked to be in a rush to get anywhere. People were just living in the moment.

I thought to myself. Wow! It’s so nice to live in a place where people take time to enjoy their day and their shopping experience?

The Neighborhood

Kaka‘ako is an amazing place to call home. Not only is the neighborhood right by the beach, but it is designed for people to enjoy local places, to meet and socialize, and for the convenience of its residents.

Foodland Farms is just one place, but there are many other neighborhood restaurants, cafes, stores, BBQ areas, and grocery stores, including the upcoming Whole Foods at the AE’O building in Ward Village.  The Flagship Whole Foods in Honolulu is scheduled to be completed in 2018, and will be the largest Whole Foods in Hawaii.  Residents of AE’O will be able to take an elevator down to the grocery store, while Anaha, Waiea, A’ali’i, Gateway Towers, and Pacifica Honolulu residents, will be within a block of the new Whole Foods store.  The convenience of living in Kakaako is unmatched, and more and more people are recognizing the benefits and moving to this amazing area.

While Kaka‘ako itself is not a new area, it is experiencing a major growth. Land where commercial warehouses once lined the streets is now being transformed into a world-class neighborhood. With a variety of condo buildings offering everything from micro-unit living spaces, to ultra-luxury ocean front residences, Kaka‘ako is quickly becoming the most sought after neighborhood in Honolulu.

The Kaka‘ako condo lifestyle is the best!!!
