It’s owned by Hale O Aloha, which shares a mailing address with SalesForce Inc., a cloud-computing software company founded by Marc Benioff, a 30-year-veteran of the software industry. The publicly traded SalesForce has been lauded as one of BusinessWeek’s Top 100 Most Innovative Companies.

This is one of the few properties on our list that sold for less than its assessed value. Chikako Takeda scored this Kahala Avenue monster for a thrifty $9.7 million in 2002.

The land is currently valued at $14.3 million.
