2100 Kalakaua introduced approximately 65,000 SF of luxury retail to Waikiki in Honolulu. The development was the catalyst for the revitalization of Waikiki and introduced urban planning strategies that have since been adopted throughout the Waikiki district.Through creative interpretations of the zoning laws, we were able to place buildings and pedestrians away from the automobiles on Kalakaua, while introducing a landscaped buffer between the street and the meandering pedestrian path.
The development was designed as a series of three-story buildings, each specifically tuned to the retailer’s brand. 2100 Kalakaua, now called “Luxury Row” is home to global luxury brands like Tiffany, YSL, Tod’s, Gucci, Coach, Miu Miu, Chanel, Moncler, and Bottega Veneta.
