Development 8 Stories & Over, For Rent


Lilia Waikiki


Honolulu, Hawaii

Architect/Designer | Benjamin Woo Architects

Builder | Nordic PCL

Developer | Brookfield Properties

Interior Designer | Jules Wilson Design Studio

Photographer | Adam Taylor Photos

Lilia is the first Class-A rental high-rise built in Waikiki in more than 20 years, and comprises a thoughtful collection of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units with more than 40,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving retail, including a full-service grocery store.

Named after Queen Emma of Hawaii’s favorite flower, Lilia was designed to embrace and reflect the beauty of Oahu. Drawing inspiration from its unique island locale, Lilia exudes an air of refined hospitality that artfully captures the graciousness of the aloha spirit.

From the amenity deck to the lush tropical courtyard garden that takes its inspiration from the 100-year-old banyan tree original to the site, every detail was designed to represent a specific sense of place and pay homage its Hawaiian roots.

From the Judges
The outdoor pool area is stunning, with fun geometric shapes and hexagon enclosures. The fins between floors help create movement on the exterior.
