CallisonRTKL creates a one-of-a-kind lifestyle destination for locals and visitors on the island of O’ahu
Located in the upscale community of Hoakalei, Wai Kai is a new lifestyle destination that will be unlike any other waterfront development on the island of O’ahu. With more than 100 shops, restaurants, and entertainment, Wai Kai will be a new gathering place where visitors can connect to both land and ocean.
Wai Kai’s retail environment is designed to cater to everyone from local residents to international and domestic visitors. The wide range of offerings spread throughout Wai Kai showcase signature restaurants and shops that feature Hawaii’s local flavors. In connection to the island’s beautiful landscape, Wai Kai incorporates a variety of lush greenery, Hawaiian plants, and koi ponds to create an oasis-like environment.
One of the many opportunities that local residents and visitors can enjoy is Wai Kai’s connection to the water lagoon by way of promenades, pedestrian walkways and boardwalks. Visitors can directly access the lagoon and will be able to participate in various water activities including windsurfing, paddle boarding, and kayaking. Wai Kai will be nothing short of amazing for the island of Oahu and will redefine the standard of lifestyle and experiential retail in Hawaii.
