Ward Village®, an award-winning 60-acre master planned community located in the heart of Honolulu, broke ground today on Ulana Ward Village, the neighborhood’s ninth residential development. Providing workforce housing to 697 qualified Hawaiʻi residents, Ulana Ward Village will add open green space to the neighborhood through the creation of a new public park and children’s play area, enhancing the community connectivity and quality lifestyle of Ward Village.
“Breaking ground on Ulana is a pivotal step forward as we continue to expand Honolulu’s homeownership opportunities for kamaʻāina,” said Doug Johnstone, President, Hawaiʻi, The Howard Hughes Corporation. “The delivery to our local residents of almost 700 homes reinforces our commitment to contributing to our state’s housing solutions.”
Launched with a lottery in early 2022, Ulana Ward Village has received strong demand from the community and is 96% pre-sold as of September 30, 2022. In addition to producing near-term workforce housing, the project is forecast to generate over $100 million of shared equity proceeds that will support the Hawaii Community Development Authority’s affordable housing initiatives over the next generation.
Ulana Ward Village includes studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences featuring modern interiors and sweeping ocean, mountain, and city views. Designed by AHL, InForm Design, Inc., and PBR Hawai’i, the contemporary residences will be complemented by experience-driven amenities, such as reservable indoor-outdoor gathering areas, a fitness center, barbeque cabanas, a dog park, and other unique offerings. Residents will enjoy open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling windows in each residence, allowing for natural light to permeate the home.
In recognition of the development milestone, Ward Village has contributed $15,000 to Trust for Public Land to enhance its Parks for People program and support their efforts to create and revitalize urban parks to improve health and quality of life for Hawaiʻi’s communities. Ward Village also gifted $15,000 to the McKinley High School Foundation, creating scholarship opportunities for local high school students.

About Ward Village®
Ward Village is a 60-acre master planned community by The Howard Hughes Corporation® in the heart of Honolulu, located between downtown and Waikīkī. Honoring the distinct history of its land, Ward Village is at the forefront of sustainable community development—integrating striking architecture, culture and arts, and public open space. At full buildout, the community will include thousands of homes and approximately one million square feet of unique retail in what Architectural Digest named “Best Planned Community in the United States.”
As a result of strong demand for new housing in urban Honolulu, Ward Village is quickly approaching sellout of its first six mixed-use residential towers—Waiea®, Anaha®, Ae’o®, Ke Kilohana®, ʻAʻaliʻi® and Kō’ula® transforming the popular shopping and dining district into a thriving urban neighborhood that offers ocean views and open space, including its newest outdoor gathering place, Victoria Ward Park. New residential buildings in development or under construction include Victoria Place® and Kalae. Since launching public sales in July 2021, The Park Ward Village has become the fastest-selling market tower in the history of Ward Village. Approved by the Hawaiʻi Community Development Authority (HCDA) in 2021, The Park Ward Village and Ulana Ward Village will be the newest mixed-use developments to join the neighborhood.
As a LEED-ND Platinum-certified master planned community, Ward Village demonstrates its commitment to responsible, mixed-use development by investing in public benefits and amenities for Honolulu’s urban community. For more information, visit http://www.wardvillage.com/.
