2/28/20: New Aulu & Olena Lottery Releases. Official Prices & How to Apply For Lottery near bottom of the page.
The Ho’opili master plan is a D.R. Horton Hawaii development and represents one of the few neighborhoods offering Oahu new homes. With nearly 12,000 homes planned over 1,500 acres, Hoopili homes for sale will provide much needed relief to Oahu residents that have long been plagued by limited housing supply and “affordable” homeownership opportunities and with that, we’re excited to say that the developer will also offer a limited selection of units for sale under Honolulu Affordable Housing guidelines.
The developer has placed the sense of “Community” at the heart of the Hoopili Kapolei project and we’ll see that brought to life through the construction of ample outdoor and active living spaces, access to seven recreation centers with pools, playgrounds, as well as future planned restaurant, retail, and grocery stores. The Ho’opili development will eventually become one of Hawaii’s most self sustainable and family friendly neighborhoods in the offering an unmatched lifestyle of ease and convenience.

Prospective homebuyers interested in purchasing a home for sale at Ho’opili have a wide selection of options to choose from. Below are the various styles of living within the community and each style typically offers many floor plans with slight variations, both with and without garage options:

HOME IS WHERE THE “HART” IS…
That old cliche was always meant to be taken figuratively but when referencing Ho’opili; it’s literally speaking! Ho’opili will the only neighborhood on Oahu to feature 3 of the 21 Honolulu Authority Rapid Transportation(HART) stations spanning a 20-mile long corridor that ends at Ala Moana Center. The Ho’opili stations and the estimated ride time to Ala Moana Center is as follows:
- Kualaka’i (East Kapolei) | 42 min.
- Keone’ae (UHWest Oahu) | 40 min.
- Honouliuli (Ho’opili) | 36 min.
If you have visited the Ho’opili neighborhood in the last year or two then you have undoubtedly seen the HART construction, as the elevated rail track threads the western border of the neighborhood on Kualakai Parkway. Not only does Ho’opili have the most HART Stations, they will see the first completed station, rumored to open as early Q1 2020. This is extremely exciting news for those who live in the region as Kapolei & Ewa is subjected to some pretty frustrating rush hour commutes at times. The Ho’opili rail stations will provide a welcomed alternative means of transportation to key destinations like Pearl Harbor, Aloha Stadium, Downtown Honolulu, Kakaako, Ala Moana, and more.
Take a peek at the artist renderings below as they provide a conceptual idea of what urban Ho’opili may look when the neighborhood fully matures over the next 20 years. The wide, pedestrian and bike friendly side walks coupled with the premier proximity to rail stations provide a more “accessible” community; something the City of Honolulu has been very intentional about as of late through Transit-Oriented Development planning.
So we’ve given you some context surrounding the Ho’opili lifestyle outside of the community boundaries, but how about life within the community? Fortunately, developer D.R. Horton Hawaii understands the integral role that Hawaii’s natural element plays in our every day lives and they to it. Although we’re still seeing Ho’opili in it’s infancy, we will inevitably see the the community come alive as the Ho’opili Master Plan matures. Plan for numerous parks, playgrounds, swimming pools, community centers, pavilions, as well as future planned grocery stores, dining, and entertainment within the neighborhood.
This is an active community and why wouldn’t it be; Ewa Region provides more sunny days than almost every other region on island. Wide sidewalks and ample green spaces provide miles of bike and jogging paths for the family and pets.
Above you’ll see the Hoopili Park named “Konane,” which serves as the first park and playground area in the neighboorhood. Featuring various jungle gym equipment and a vast amount of green space for dogs and kids to play. Mark your calendar and join Hoopili Yoga at The Park every Thursday from 5:30-6:30! Picnic tables and water fountains provide ample seating area for a weekend picnic with the family under the sunny Ewa sky! But don’t worry, the pavilion area provides a large amount of shaded area for covered gatherings.
The nearby community garden will be a thing of beauty and residents are encouraged to participate in the effort. Five brand new schools are in the plans, as well as further development of dining, retail, and entertainment spaces that will permit owners a convenient and stimulated lifestyle in a community that has long been pinned as Oahu’s “Second City.” A master association fee of $59 will persist for all homes in the Ho’opili development.
The Ho’opili site was once home to 1,500 acres of agricultural land and to memorialize it, the community promotes one of the most cultural and environmentally innovative features in planting fruit and “food” trees throughout the neighborhood. Take a spin through Konane Park and you’ll find Ulu(breadfruit) and Avocado trees planted around the park that are already bearing fruit. Cool, right?
