Facts

  • Tallest building in Hawaii.
  • The developer, Myers Corporation, wanted to persuade the Honolulu city council to scrap downtown's 350-foot height limit in favor of a new 450-foot maximum. It was changed to 400 feet but city council voted to approve this strikingly designed tower to exceed the limit by exactly 28 ft-11 1/2 in.
  • According to KPF, subdividing the tower into distinctive slabs diminishes the building's apparent mass.
  • 3 story banking hall comprises of a soaring, light-washed rectangle finished in panels of pear and anigre woods, Arabascata marble, and acres of stainless steel.
  • The Contemporary Arts Museum in First Hawaiian Center has a light and airy 60-foot high vaulted atrium.
  • This building replaced an earlier headquarters for First Hawaiian Bank and one of the first high-rises in downtown Honolulu, the First Hawaiian Bank Building.
