Hale Mahana Collegiate Apartments

This 590-bed mixed-use student housing sits atop a podium consisting of retail and a three-level parking garage. Above the podium base, the Student Housing is conceived as a U-shaped volume. The high-rise tower anchors the northeast corner of the site at the intersection of South King and University Avenue in Honolulu. The top level of the building houses common amenities and an outdoor social space with spectacular views of Honolulu, Diamond Head, and the ocean. At the ground level, the project features 10,000 square feet of landscaped public open space that activates the street and enhances the public realm. Half of this space is landscaped with a variety of indigenous trees and shrubs. The retail, restaurants and residential lobby will be accessed through this public plaza.
