(From Fort Weaver Road to Kualakai Pkwy). This area is currently referred to as “East Kapolei” but will feature it’s own zip code in the future.

Ho’opili is will encompass approximately 1500 acres, include 5 schools (3 Elementary, 1 Middle, and 1 High School), and will provide roughly 12,000 new homes.

The 1st two releases were Ha’akea & Haloa, with Ho’opili’s 2nd Multi-family phase ‘Akoko and 2nd single family home phase Lehua almost completed.The 3rd single family home phase Iliahi will deliver their first homes in October 2018!


Kohina at Ho’opili will have something for almost every type of buyer, featuring studios, 1-bedroom, 2-, 3-, and 4-bedroom residences.  There will be opportunities to purchase Affordable Homes (restrictions apply), market residential units, and FLEX Homes with commercial space on the ground floor.  FLEX Home layout space will allow owners the ability to operate their business downstairs while living upstairs. There will be affordable-priced residences and market-priced residences for sale.


Ho’oulu is an unique product as it’s been rumored for about a year that the Ho’opili Master Plan would include single level homes starting in the low $500,000s with NO maintenance fees. Ho’oulu will offer a mixture of the two combining a good balance of space and pricing which will be attractive to homebuyers in the Ewa Beach and Kapolei areas looking for single family homes at town home pricing.

Lehua – Lehua consists of the same floor plans as Ha’akea. The developer preselected some of the upgrades and included it into the price, which was something different from Ha’akea. 

Haloa – Ho’opili’s first multi-family phase consisted of 2 and 3 bedroom Townhouses and “Flex” homes.

A portion of the Townhouses were sold as “affordable” meaning that buyers must fit under AMI (Area Median Income) restrictions. There are two tiers of affordable categories one being buyers up to 80% AMI and a slightly higher group up to 120% AMI. These buyers will be subject to a 10 year buyback but no shared appreciation.

There were also be market townhouses for sale and “Flex” homes which may be used as mixed use properties with businesses on the ground floor. The flex homes are perfect for small business owners such as hair/nail salons.
