Honolulu Luxury Residential Development Builds on Historic Modernist Vision

The original IBM building designed by Russian architect Vladimir Ossipoff in 1964 was renovated and restored as part of the transformation of Honolulu’s Ward Village and to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Focusing on roughly 62,700 square feet of space, the $20 million project promotes a 10-year urban master plan spanning 60 acres from downtown Honolulu to Waikiki that real estate and development company The Howard Hughes Corporation is leading.

While the building retains much of the existing office uses, the renovation also introduced a Ward Village Master Plan Information Center and showrooms for future Ward Village projects such as 22 new residential towers, public open spaces, and entertainment services. The designers also preserved its exterior concrete brise-soleil fashioned in a distinctive honeycomb pattern and renewed the surrounding landscape at the ground level of the seven-story edifice.
