280 Beach Walk, the Honu Group Inc. development designed by local firm, Eight Inc. has officially received LEED® certification. This makes it the first retail complex in Waikiki to be recognized by the US Green Building Council under the Core and Shell rating system.
The design of 280 Beach Walk emphasizes Waikiki’s sensibility to pedestrian scale through a carefully crafted architecture that celebrates a strong connection between its use, context, and climate. The materials, proportions, and sensitive detailing are designed to provide an iconic architecture that truly belongs to the public realm. The Hard Rock Café currently occupies the 2,579-square foot ground floor space of 280 Beach Walk. The building also features six other retail spaces ranging from 967 to 2,557 square feet.
