We’re getting our first look at a new reserved housing project in Kakaako.

The Flats at Pu‘unui is an 88-unit, seven-story building located at 440 Keawe Street.

Units are reserved for renters who earn up to Honolulu’s median income (100-140% of AMI ($82,600- $115,640 for a family of four). Click here for more information about reserved housing in Kakaako.

A welcome celebration and tradition Hawaiian blessing was held Thursday.

“We’re excited, because it blends nicely with Kakaako. It’s a place where families can work, live, and thrive,” said Jack Wong, CEO, Kamehameha Schools.

Rents posted online range from $2,400 for a 915 sq. ft. 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment to $1,295 for a 369 sq. ft. studio. One listing included additional fees with parking at $145 per month and a “pet rent” of $50 per month with a deposit of $500 per pet. The listing also stated a two-pet maximum with breed restrictions.

Application packages are now being accepted. The project is part of Kaloko‘eli Properties and is managed by Locations Property Management. Click here for more information and to apply.

The Flats at Pu‘unui is part of a redevelopment block extending from Auahi to Pohukaina streets, which encompasses Castle & Cooke Homes Hawaii’s 400 Keawe Street apartments, approximately 10,000 square feet of in-line commercial space, a two-story, 24,000-square foot building formerly used by Alu Like, a common area green space courtyard, and water feature.
