Nobu’s newest restaurant is opening soon within one of Honolulu’s luxury residential towers, Waiea. Residents of the building will have the exclusive perk of room service delivered from the renowned eatery.
The Japanese fusion restaurant, headed by illustrious chef Nobu Matsuhisa, will be located on the ground floor of Waiea, the first residential tower to rise in Ward Village, a 60-acre elite coastal community in Honolulu
The building, designed by Vancouver-based architect James K. M. Cheng in collaboration with Rob Iopa and WCIT Architecture, comprises 175 sophisticated residences. Of those residences, with interiors designed by Tony Ingrao, 10 are townhomes and 14 make up the Grand Penthouse Collection spanning the top five floors.
For $36 million, the top-floor penthouse on the 36th floor offers more than 10,000 square feet of space, with five bedrooms; a master bath with a deep soaking tub, dual sinks, and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the ocean; and a guesthouse one floor below. An open-concept kitchen is designed for entertaining with top-of-the-line Miele appliances. The living area opens up to 1,300 square feet of private outdoor space with an infinity pool. A separate four-car garage is also included with the penthouse.
One floor down, the 35th Floor Grand Penthouse is offered for $35 million, with 8,500 square feet of the same refined details and exceptional views, in addition to 2,000 square feet of outdoor space. The remaining penthouses are situated on floors 32 through 34 and available from $4.2 million.
“The experience rendered from the Waiea Grand Penthouses will be truly unmatched,” says Cheng. “Everything at this level in the building is amplified, the air is pure, and the views are breathtaking. The Grand Penthouse buyer will own, undoubtedly, the most extraordinary condominium residence in Hawai‘i.”
Complementing the building’s sophisticated architecture and design, luxury amenities include a first-class fitness center with a yoga room; resort-style locker rooms with steam, sauna, and treatment rooms; and an infinity edge ocean view pool, cabanas, and hot tub. There is also an indoor golf simulator, a theater room, dining rooms with catering and a chef’s kitchen, quiet lounges, guest suites, on-site guest parking, an optional valet service, a children’s play area with water fixtures, a dog park, a library, a bar, and a concierge service.
Waiea is one of five residential towers within Ward Village, which is recognized as the largest LEED-ND Platinum-certified development in the country and the only one in Hawaiʻi. Public amenities within the community include a planned four-acre park, tree-lined sidewalks and bike lanes, and access to the adjacent Kewalo Harbor.
