Every time I drive by the new 7000 Hawaii Kai Drive building at the corner of Keahole Street and Hawaii Kai Drive, I'm struck by how large it appears.  Today, my curiosity got the better of me.  I looked up the largest residential complexes in Hawaii Kai to find out where the new building places in terms of housing units.  Here's what I found:

 

Rank
Year Completed
Condominium or Apartment Name TMK # Address Units
1 2002 PENINSULA AT HAWAII KAI 139008016 520 LUNALILO HOME ROAD 658
2 1974 MAUNA LUAN THE 139070004 511 HAHAIONE ST 433
3 1999 LALEA AT HAWAII KAI 139008042 7080 - 7200 HAWAII KAI D 293
4 2016 7000 HAWAII KAI DRIVE – NEW 139008043 7000 HAWAII KAI DR 269
5 1973 ESPLANADE THE 139008009 500 LUNALILO HOME RD 250
6 1969 KUAPA ISLE 139008001 156 OPIHIKAO WAY 234
7 1993 KALELE KAI 139008030 ONE KEAHOLE PL 219
8 1973 PLAZA HAWAII KAI THE 139070001 6770 HAWAII KAI DR 146
9 1973 HERITAGE HOUSE HAWAII-KAI 139008001 6710 HAWAII KAI DR 135
10 1972 MT TERRACE 139035013 250 KAWAIHAE ST 126

 The new building isn't included in the DCCA listing: it is 100 percent rental unit and not a condominium.  However, relative to the other complexes in Hawaii Kai, it places fourth with 269 units of its own reporting.  In addition to being surprised by its size, I was also surprised at how nearly all of the other large complexes are over 20 years old.  Many are even older than 40 years old.
