More About Moana Pacific If you noted the 'built in' date, you realize that the Moana Pacific condo opened at the absolute height of the real estate boom. Sales were announced to begin before groundbreaking, which prompted potential buyers to begin lining up at the project's sales center 8 days before the scheduled start. Some rented U-Hauls to sleep and live in while waiting.
The building sold out very quickly, though the developer held back 10% of the Moana Pacific condos for themselves. They still own most of those today. It's no wonder because this is not only a luxury property, which tend to appreciate very well, it's also right on the edge of the Kakaako development, which will surely increase the desirability of the address.
In addition to the benefits of the new Kakaako projects that are coming, this residence is already walking distance from the 2 biggest shopping centers in central Honolulu, the Ala Moana Shopping Center and the malls at Ward. Dining, entertainment, stores of every kind, including a few you didn't know existed are a stroll away from your living room couch.
Your living room, along with the rest of your home, is surrounded by windows that go from floor to ceiling, something you'll appreciate most of all if you live in the south side, where the ocean views are found. A special feature of this building are the curved areas that give you a modern, unique perspective right in your home.
Each of the Moana Pacific towers has its own theater, fitness center and party room to use, but the best perks might be the putting green and driving cages. If you're not a golfer, there's the 2 tennis courts to work up a sweat on with your friends.
This is the perfect place for homebuyers who want something a little more modern, both in amenities and in the building itself. There's something about living with a curved wall that make life a little more interesting.
