The 37-story tower will rise 418-feet and overlook the cityscape and Ala Moana coastline, with the 99 total Residences taking up real estate on the uppermost floors. The open floor plans are set to be accentuated by sophisticated interiors with finishes by Dianna Wong that blend classicism and modernity, sparing use of color, and simple geometry.

All homeowners will get the chance to take in the daily eye candy of the Pacific Ocean while a select few residents will score homes featuring views of Hawaii’s Diamond Head volcano.
