According to the Pacific Business News, the $30 million, three-story facility in the heart of the pedestrian-friendly city of Kapolei in West Oahu will be ready for move-in by November.

Called Ilima at Leihano, the new development is located in a park-like setting on a 3.8-acre parcel that is part of the 40-acre Leihano mixed-use community.

Designed by Group 70 International, Ilima at Leihano features 84 independent, assisted-living and memory-care units, along with large common areas and extensive outdoor gardens.

Monthly rents will range from $5,805 for a studio of about 410 square feet to $7,675 for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit of about 995 square feet.

The property also offers easy access to a variety of amenities for all generations, including the 60-acre Kapolei Regional Park across the street, the Kapolei Library, West Oahu Queens Medical Center, a future transit station, shopping and dining options, an Embassy Suites hotel, First Hawaiian Bank, home furnishings company C.S. Wo & Sons and medical services.

This is one of the main reasons why California-based Kisco Senior Living selected Kapolei as the location for its soon-to-open Hawaii project, which has been seven years in the making. Within the last four years, the company closed on the final land acquisitions from the James Campbell Co.

“We started the project before the recession, waited out the recession, and then for a lot of the infrastructure to come in,” Kisco Senior Living’s chief development officer, Mitchell Brown, told the newspaper.
