Developer Howard Hughes Corp. is moving forward with plans for its next luxury high-rise project — plans that include tearing down Ward Warehouse with long-time tenants like The Old Spaghetti Factory and Kincaid’s.

There’s no official timeline yet on when stores and restaurants would be moving out and construction would begin.

However, Todd Apo, vice president of community development, says approximately 45 stores and restaurants could be asked to move out by July 1, 2017.

Howard Hughes has applied for initial permits for Gateway Towers and, according to Apo, it all depends on project sales.

He says there has been ongoing communication with all of the tenants during monthly meetings:

We have applied for initial permits for our Gateway Towers project based upon timing requirements and plans for its development. Final decisions on construction timing will be driven by project sales. The diverse home options throughout Ward Village continue to sell at all price points with over 1,080 homes sold to date. As we continue our efforts to create an extraordinary urban neighborhood for Honolulu, we continue to stay in touch with our tenants at Ward Village and keep them apprised our development plans on an ongoing basis.

According to the project’s website, the 60-acre master-planned community will include a four-acre public park space with a bike path, and views of the ocean and Diamond Head. Amenities include a dog park, pet spa, pools, and a yoga room.

On the website, we found a featured one-bedroom unit going for $1.6 million and a two-bedroom unit for $4.8 million.

Back in 2014, we reported that there were plans to build two condominium towers along with a park and commercial space. Construction was supposed to start in 2015.
