Victoria Place at Ward Village

Ward Village, a 60-acre Master Planned Community, will soon have its newest ultra-luxury condominium – Victoria Place. The project will replace the previous planned project, Gateway Towers, which was withdrawn in 2017. Located between Auahi Street and Ala Moana Boulevard, Victoria Place’s prime location will have unobstructed ocean views and direct access via sky bridge to Kewalo Harbor. Victoria Place will be a residential, high-rise community that will include approximately 350 units with open spaces and recreational areas. Amid the housing shortages on the island, the Howard Hughes Corporation has played an active role in developing many new properties in the Kakaako district of Oahu. As of 2019, Howard Hughes Corporation has completed Waiea, Anaha, Ke Kilohana, Ae’o, and Victoria Ward Park. They are in the process of constructing ‘A’ali’i and Ko’ula.

Named best planned community in the United States by Architectural Digest, Ward Village is becoming a dynamic, thriving community whose energy is sparked by the local retail, dining, art, and entertainment that is shaping the area. Ward Village promotes a pedestrian-friendly, smart-growth community where residents can live, work, and play. Ward Village is a driving factor in the transformation of Kaka‘ako into a thriving, urban, mixed use and residential neighborhood.
