Koa Ridge

After two decades of legal battles, Koa Ridge broke ground in 2016. The long-awaited development will release its first phase of homes in July. Located off of Ka Uka Boulevard between Waipio and Mililani, Koa Ridge is nestled on the slopes of Central Oahu and will mirror its sister community of Mililani. The pedestrian and bike-friendly community sits on over 500 acres and will boast 3,500 homes, a Village Center, recreational areas, parks, retail shops, restaurants, and an elementary school.

Koa Ridge will be a master-planned community that offers all the benefits of downtown urban living in an ideal suburban setting. The developer of Koa Ridge, Castle & Cooke, continues it’s 50 year legacy of building carefully planned, sustainable communities. Some other developments include Mililani, Nohona at Kapolei, and Puuwai Place in Waipahu.

The first phase called Nanea will include 37 single-family detached condominium three to four-bedroom homes starting in the high $800,000 range. There will be six models to choose and each will come upgrade options. The next project will be Luana, paired homes (duplexes) starting in the low $700,000’s. The last project offered in the first phase will be Malina, Affordable Townhomes (120%) under the City guidelines and restrictions starting in the low $400,000’s. Since it is a master-planned community, there will be association fees that will go to fund the maintenance of the community. The association fee for Koa Ridge master community will be $68 per month. The association fee for Nanea will be $50 per month. Sales will likely be similar to their previous sales release at Puuwai Place which was a lottery system. Applications are now available and the deadline for submission is July 24, 2020.

Stay tuned for more updates!
