Blessing Ceremony for Pacifica Honolulu

Pacifica Honolulu, an OliverMcMillan (OM) residential and commercial development, celebrated the blessing ceremony today, Thursday, March 25th to a delighted crowd of buyers, consultants and others associated with the 46-story tower. Pacifica Honolulu is Hawai`i’s most exciting new urban condominium project for 2010. “This is the moment we have been waiting for…the Blessing Ceremony and resumption of one of the largest new commercial construction projects in the state,” said Dan Nishikawa Group President of OliverMcMillan Pacific Rim.
Mayor Mufi Hannemann joined the traditional Hawaiian blessing ceremony today and commented, OM, who acquired the property in late 2009, has spent the past several months designing and upgrading the stalled condominium project, which is planned to resume construction early next month. “We have all worked hard toward this goal and are grateful for the tremendous support that the local community has provided to re-start this project. The creation of 489 new homes, over 400 construction and other related jobs and the opportunity to craft an extraordinary project out of this building spotlights the abilities of a very focused and talented team,” said OliverMcMillan CEO, Morgan Dene Oliver.
OliverMcMillan and its partners are making a significant investment in Hawaii in order to finish the project that is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2011.  Pacifica Honolulu is the collaboration of several outstanding design firms.
Architects: Architects Hawaii and Gensler Architects (Los Angeles, CA);
Interior Designer: Philpotts & Associates (Honolulu, HI) and Jules Wilson I.D. (San Diego).
Landscape Architect: Ben Lee, Brownlie and Lee (Honolulu, HI).
General Contractor: Ledcor Construction Hawaii
“With over 60% of the units currently available now under contract, we believe that OliverMcMillan’s reputation and attention to detail has sparked the seed of trust and created a foundation for one of the most successful new condo developments in Honolulu. OliverMcMillan’s vision for Pacifica is in sync with buyer’s desires in the local market and we believe that shared vision led buyers to show up early, line up and purchase living spaces that include not only fine finishes and amenities, but also an ideal urban location. The strong interest in this project spotlights what we hope to be a bright future for Hawaii’s real estate market,” said Nishikawa.
The 46-story high rise is on 2.3 acres and has a total of 489 residential condominiums. There are 365 market residences which are currently being sold and 124 reserve homes, that will be offered for sale at a later date under a state (HCDA) housing program that place restrictions on buyer incomes, unit resale terms and prices.
The market condominiums feature new upgraded interior finishes package and outstanding amenities coupled with extraordinary panoramic ocean, mountain, city and Diamond Head views. Pacifica is Honolulu’s ultimate urban neighborhood that was envisioned with one intention in mind: to create an architecturally innovative and beautifully designed home that is intimate, private and perfect for family and friends.
