A New Luxury Paradigm for Honolulu


The widely anticipated grand opening of Waiea, the newest 36-floor luxury high rise residence, represents the pinnacle of luxury living in Honolulu. Composed of only 174 residences, including 10 town homes, 12 penthouses and two breathtaking grand penthouses, Waiea offers the most sophisticated residences in Hawaii, not to mention the most stunning island and ocean views. Among those offerings represented by LIST Sotheby’s International Realty… Grand Penthouse 35. What makes this residence unique is that it is fully customizable by the new owners. The centerpiece is a spectacular rooftop lanai and a private ocean facing infinity pool with perpetual 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Diamond Head, mountains and Waikiki.

No detail was overlooked, including the art work that is an integral part of the property’s DNA.

As you approach the building, a magnificent sculpture in the porte cochere welcomes you.The Howard Hughes Corporation collaborated with Waiea’s award-winning architect James K.M. Cheng and internationally acclaimed designer Tony Ingrao to identify a handful of artists from across the globe for consideration. Following an extensive review of many talented artists, they unanimously selected a sculpture by Tony Cragg, one of the world’s most prolific living sculptors, to feature at Waiea. Cragg’s bronze sculpture was chosen for its dynamic and energetic scale, rich color and organic shape to complement the tower’s inspired form. Waiea, the Hawaiian term for “water of life,” refers to the building’s sweeping water-inspired glass façade and the gorgeous fluidity of Cragg’s piece perfectly balances the site’s relationship with water.

 Waiea Sculpture


Poised between figuration and abstraction, the form of Versus is composed of over sixty different profiles that combine in an emotive and powerful bronze assemblage. In its dynamic sense of movement, the work is part of Tony Cragg’s iconic “Rational Beings” series that is characterized by tall columnar forms fabricated in bronze, wood, stone, plaster or steel, in which facial profiles become intermittently visible when the works are viewed from different angles. Evoking a vitality and sense of internal energy, Versus invites the viewer to interact with its shifting outlines and the myriad of interpretations they provoke. Here, the subtle anthropomorphic quality of the sculpture instills it with a sense of human intimacy.

Tony Cragg’s art typically consists of staggering, complex mosaics made of found objects, often arranged in whimsical and monochromatic patterns. He works across mediums, in sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, installations, and drawing. And works such as his 1978 floor piece New Stones, Newton’s Tones use chromatic changes in carefully arranged accumulations of consumer detritus, so as to call attention to landscape, space, and most importantly, material. Cragg has been quoted as saying, “I’m an absolute materialist—and for me material is exciting and ultimately sublime. When I’m involved in making sculpture, I’m looking for a system of belief or ethics in the material.” 

Cragg is the recipient of the prestigious Turner Prize, an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Arts, and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Major solo exhibitions include shows at the Fondazione Stelline in Milan, the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, the Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, and the Museo de Arte de Lima.

In his words, James Cheng calls the penthouse “a villa in the sky.” Designed with the connoisseur of life in mind, no detail has been overlooked.Sheathed in high-performance, double glazed, low-e coated glass, the building’s sweeping, wave-like façade is inspired by the essential life-giving role of water in the local landscape – from the fish ponds to the vast Pacific Ocean. Waiea, the Hawaiian term for “water of life” links the magnificent structure to the cultural and historic significance of water to the Hawaiian people.

Waiea is the flagship building of the new master planned community of Ward Village. Located on 60 acres of prime coastal property, this is Honolulu’s only model community that is being planned, developed and operated by a single developer – Howard Hughes.

Ward Village is one of the great urban communities of today that will ensure Honolulu continues to be a leading 21st century city. It has the perfect blend of urban and island living with a unique cosmopolitan vibe. Pedestrian walkways, outdoor gathering places, diverse collection of retail shops, restaurants and entertainment make Ward Village a premier destination unlike any in the world. Ideally situated between downtown Honolulu to the West and world renowned Ala Moana Center and Waikiki to the East, Ward Village is poised to take its rightful place as the new center of Honolulu, a neighborhood and gathering place that calls to people everywhere.
