KO'OLANI II TOWER

The last remaining parcel of the Kaka'ako Residential Tower Master Plan in Honolulu, HI. The project goal was to create a world class residential high rise tower that combined residential uses with recreation, restaurant, and office uses while focusing views towards Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean.

The convex plan shape distributes a wide view angle for the residential units, maximizing the length of the view, edge of each unit, thus enhancing view premiums per unit. The building is designed as a sustainable high rise, that will utilize PV panels and wind energy to power the commons areas of the building, thus lowering energy usage and common area utility costs and lowering HOA dues accordingly.
