AFFORDABLE HOUSING MINIMUM & MAXIMUM GROSS INCOME RESTRICTIONS:
Your Gross Income must fall w/in these Minimum and Maximum Limits for your particular Household Size. If it does Not, then unfortunately, you would Not be Eligible for the Affordable Residences. However, you would still be Eligible for the Market Residences you qualify for financially.
Central Ala Moana Lead Lenders
It is required by the developer that you obtain a Central Ala Moana specific Pre-Qualification from one of their Lead Lenders in order to be Eligible to contract on a Market Residence, or to be Eligible to enter the Affordable Lottery. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you do so as Early as Possible! The closer the date for the Start of Sales of both the Market Residences (After Mid-Dec 2018) and the Affordable Residences (After Mid-Jan 2019) gets, the Loan Officers may not be able to process your request in-time to meet the developer’s deadlines to do so due to the anticipated increased work load.
Overview of The Central Moana
The Central Ala Moana has a total of 512 residences. What is highly unusual is that 310 (60%) of these residences will be designated for those who meet the residency, income & asset restrictions of HHFDC’s Affordable Housing Program for those earning no more than 80-140% AMI of Honolulu’s Area Median Income (AMI) for their Family/Household Size. This is a very large number of “Affordable” residences for a condominium of this size! These HHFDC Affordable residences will be sold via a Lottery system w/the Lottery Application Period to enter the Lottery ending on 1/14/19, so there will be almost a 2 month period to complete your Lottery Application and turn it in. For more information regarding the Affordable Housing Lottery, click on the link below.
Interior square footages of the residences will range from 397 sq. ft. for the smallest studio up to as large as 1507 sq. ft. for the largest 3-bedroom! Definitely “normal” sized residences compared to Honolulu’s average condominium sizes. Monthly maintenance fees will be released soon… stay-tuned. The building will be an “upgraded” version of The Kapiolani Residence with larger units, equal or “superior” finishes & more amenities! Construction is anticipated to start sometime in 2019 with completion expected sometime in 2021.
