Overview of Keola Lai

Keola La’i has a total of 352 residences consisting of 70 one-bedrooms, 314 two-bedrooms, 36 three-bedroom residences and 2 three-bedroom PH residences. All units have at least 8’6″ ceiling heights w/the 40th-43rd floor residences having ceiling heights of up to 9’6″. 70 of the direct ocean (makai) facing 2-bedrooms have balconies (lanais) of 58, 86 or 116 sq. ft. All of the 3-bedrooms have balconies of 96 sq. ft. None of the mountain (mauka) facing, or the remaining ocean facing residences have balconies. Market 1-bedrooms come w/1-parking stall, 2 and 3-bedrooms 2-parking stalls and PH’s 3-parking stalls. There are a large number of guest parking stalls, 25-covered (2 w/electric charging stations designated for electric vehicles), which is much more than most condos in Honolulu.

The number of residences per floor (for the non-PH floors) varies from a low of 4 on the 42nd floor to a high of 12 on the 6th floor, a somewhat unusual floor-plate variation compared to most condos in Honolulu. As an example, not all of the ’01 residences have the same number of bedrooms and baths, are of the same size, and are located in the same place w/in each floor-plate (see floor plans below). This applies to all of the residences at Keola La’i. Therefore any prospective buyer or seller needs to evaluate the residence they are interested in buying or selling based on that particular residence’s square footage, not the residence stack number as in most Honolulu condos.

Of note is that Keola La’i had always been, and is still, a building w/a very high owner-occupancy ratio, originally ~85% and now still ~78% seven-years after opening. This has helped to contribute to the close community feel, excellent maintenance, responsive management and beautiful “maturation”/improvement of the building during this timeframe.

Keola Lai Location

Keola Lai’ is ideally located for those who work in and around the financial/business/government district of Downtown Honolulu. It is located on the Western edge of Kakaako adjacent to the Capitol District, Honolulu’s Civic Center and all of the major medical hospitals in Town, including Queen’s Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Honolulu Clinic, and Straub Medical Center. Keola La’i has a “quieter” more “laid-back” feel than many similar newer condos located closer to Ala Moana & Waikiki which tend to have lower owner-occupancy ratios, higher “transient” populations and in many cases a higher management and staff turn-over.

Proven Record of Success

In 2005 I was chosen as the Sales Manager for the yet-to-be-built Keola Lai and held that position until the last developer unit sold. During this time I assisted w/consulting the developer, A&B Kakaako LLC (an entity of Alexander & Baldwin, Inc.), with regards to sales strategies, amenities, and other aspects of the development. I was also in-charge of managing the 20-member Keola Lai sales team. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to help many of my own clients both buy and sell in Keola La’i.

I also have a proven record as one of the top Realtors for original Developer sales and re-sales at Keola La’i since 2005 to the present.

Below are a few of my past sales at Keola Lai. Contact me to learn more about how I use professional photography and staging & preparation for my clients.
