Line forms early for luxury condos

Kakaako line

Dozens of people lined up to buy new condos in the Ward area Thursday night, even though there’s been no official announcement.

On Thursday, a line began to form of people who are jumping at the chance to buy a unit at Anaha and Waiea.

There were about 50 people waiting in tents.

Developer Howard Hughes will not comment on the reported condo sales until it releases a notice to the public.

“I’ve never experienced something where people sitting and waiting in line and camping out overnight just for the ability to possibly purchase a unit in a building that’s not going to be up for at least 24 months. I just think it’s incredible,” prospective buyer Matthew Jacobson said.

Those in line say they hear the units are state-of-the-art, luxurious properties and could go up for sale on Friday.
