The IBM Building, 1240 Ala Moana Blvd, was designed by Vladimir Ossipoff. When it openedin 1962
it was heralded as a modernist piece of architecture. It was slated for demolition in 2009, perhaps to be
replaced by another high-rise building. Instead it was renovated at a cost of US$ 24 million and re-opened
in 2014. The building will be the gateway to the development plan for the surrounding 60 acre Ward village.
A new construction underway, part of the Ward Village master plan. The Anaha, 1240 Ala Moana Blvd, which should be completed in 2017.
The Anaha Tower will have 238 tower residences and 78 town homes, with a price range of US$ 1,500,000 – 11,380,000.
Close to Anaha is the Waiea Building, 1118 Ala Moana Blvd. It is expected to be ready in November 2016 and have 161 units
on 36 floors, plus 10 villas. The only unsold units cost at least US$ 5 million. There will be two ultimate penthouse units,
each costing US$ 35 million. The design is special. “The preferred southeast facing side of Waiea, which has a curving shape,
does not have two identical pieces of glass – an architectual masterpiece,” according to the developer’s homepage.
