Explaining Honolulu Neighborhoods



Aloha and E Komo Mai (Welcome). This month I’m going to be writing about my new home…the island of O’ahu. First, a few days discussing the O’ahu neighborhoods, and then a few more days discussing exploring the island. I hope you enjoy it.

 Area 1: Ala Moana / Kakaako District

Ala Moana is at the edge of the Waikiki district and therefore attracts a large number of visitors. Luxury and high-end apartment[s are found here, many with spectacular ocean, park, and city views. Residents can enjoy the walking convenience to Ala Moana Center Oahu’s largest regional shopping center; Ala Moana Beach Park, a boat harbor, restaurants and megaplexes. Surrounding communities are Kapiolani, Ward/Kinau. There are a few pockets of older single-family homes here and some of these are simply breath taking. However, there are far more condos in this area. These residences are primarily low rise and high-rise condominiums. Kakaako, close to Downtown Honolulu, was mostly industrial, however in recent years the re-development of Kakaako with planned parks, the new medical school, and bio-medical center, condominiums, and multi-use living projects well underway. My office is in this area.
