Hawaii Times Building penthouse in downtown Honolulu for sale or lease

The view from the lanai overlooking the Honolulu Harbor.

The historic Hawaii Times building makes a perfect home base for anyone who works downtown or in Chinatown. It’s conveniently located right next door to O’Tooles Irish pub and nearby Kumu Kahua Theatre, and the building is just a step away from Chinatown and the downtown central business district.

With just 15 residential units, though, there's rarely an opportunity to snag an apartment here, but right now, there's not one but two units available. We recently covered a studio in the building; now, a 2,177-square-foot penthouse unit is up for sale or lease. 

One room has large windows with views of the city.

There’s a private kitchen with a raised bar, one bathroom, a lanai and large windows with views overlooking the Honolulu Harbor. It’s perfect if you want to stay inside and avoid the crowds—you’ll be able to see the fireworks displays over Aloha Tower on New Year’s Eve and Fourth of July. A bonus: There’s plenty of natural lighting and there’s even access to the building’s rooftop deck to check out panoramic views of the city and harbor.

There are remnants of the previous tenant, The Limtiaco Company, including bookcases attached to the wall and IT wiring. But this place is definitely huge, there were so many rooms it felt like walking through a maze. It is a spacious unit with large ceilings, so you won’t feel cramped. Happy house hunting!

Money talk: Call for pricing.
