Symphony Honolulu

Prime location meets premier luxury

Symphony Honolulu is a high-rise residential
condominium and mixed-use development in the Kaka’ako Special District, and the
first project submitted under the HCDA’s new mauka area rules. These rules
emphasize sustainability and community connectivity, which have been major
considerations in Symphony’s design and highly visible presence at the
Ward-Kapi’olani corner.

Two major design elements compose Symphony Honolulu:
Symphony Tower, a 43-story high-rise residential development, and Velocity, a
world-class exotic auto gallery presenting fine European cars and cycles
together with a fine dining restaurant and café. These two elements increase
the residential neighborhood population and engage Honolulu’s overall community
as part of the Blaisdell, Ward-Kapi’olani experience. Symphony’s residents
share its extensive “Plaza Earth” 7th floor amenities including lap pool, spas,
fitness center with indoor outdoor yoga, locker and sauna room, multimedia,
karaoke room, social room with chef’s kitchen, massage therapy, barbeque and
party pavilions, showcase grill, guest suites and dog run.

Symphony Honolulu’s design vision is the product of
intensive collaboration with Tower and Velocity clients, and a charette
process, which included guest architects, interior designers, contractors,
brokers, engineers, and other specialty consultants. Discussion and thought
derived from learning and understanding the Tower and Velocity as expressions
of the clients’ missions and brands. The overall vision is about elegant,
timeless, understated design, which says “more with less.”
