The Commodore Waikiki
I tell my friends–and my clients–that the Commodore Waikiki truly is a hidden gem. They
take my word for it, too, because they know that not only am I on the Locations Project
team for the building, I’m also a resident and a member of the condominium board!
That’s right, I’ve lived in the Commodore Waikiki for more than two years, so I can vouch
for its can’t-be-beat location, Instagram-worthy vintage appeal and–most important–its
The building was originally constructed in 1947 by the Army Corps of Engineers to house
U.S. Naval Officers, so the quality of its construction is top notch, and the concrete walls
make the units virtually soundproof. Millions of dollars were poured into upgrading the
entire 43-unit building, including new flooring, cabinetry, appliances, fixtures, lighting and
ceiling fans, as well as contemporary paint colors.
Situated along the Ala Wai Canal, I consider the view from my lanai to be my own private
urban oasis. It’s so quiet and green that I never feel as if I’m in town. Yet, I’m just minutes
from Ala Moana Beach, and plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife options.
The ample street parking and cooling trade winds are a bonus that really make the
Commodore Waikiki a smart choice for homeowners (like myself) and investors alike.
Oh, and did I mention that even though the building is gated AND pet friendly with a
tropical garden-like setting and on-site laundry room, the maintenance fees are
unbelievably low at just $256 a month?
And speaking of great value, the average price per square foot in the Commodore Waikiki
is a considerably better value when compared to the overall average price per square foot
in the Ala Moana neighborhood.
Two units have already sold in 2018, and one is in escrow. There are currently three units
for sale, and one more will be listed soon. View available Commodore Waikiki listings.
