This $36 million penthouse would be the most expensive condo ever sold in Hawaii

From the New York website: A luxury high-rise apartment building in Honolulu is set to make new sales records once it’s complete.

The two penthouses in the Waiea development are priced at $36 million and $35 million — which, if buyers take the bait, will be the highest prices ever paid for a condo in Hawaii. $20 million is the going high-water mark, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The Waiea tower, which is projected to be completed in late 2016, has 171 residences and is 90% sold, according to the WSJ. Designed by James K.M. Cheng Architects and WCIT Architecture, it’s targeting LEED certification.

A big perk of buying into the building: residents can get room service from world-famous sushi restaurant Nobu. Celebrity favorite chef Nobu Matsuhisa is relocating his Oahu restaurant from Waikiki to the base of Waiea.

Other building amenities will include poolside cabanas by the rooftop infinity pool, an indoor golf simulator, library, and theater, a fitness center with yoga room, and a dog park and children’s play area.

Waiea is located in Ward Village, a new development of green space, townhouses, retail, and condo towers on the Honolulu waterfront.

The 10,000-square-foot Grand Penthouse has five bedrooms and over 1,300 square feet of outdoor patio space, including its own pool. Located on the 36th floor, it’s priced at $36 million.

The second penthouse, at $35 million, is a six-bedroom unit on the floor below. Both penthouses — and all the residences — have unparalleled views of the island, including the Honolulu skyline and ocean at the foot of the tower.
