Our newest property, Koʻoloaʻula has been designed to accommodate larger, multi-generational families, meeting a pressing need for many households on Oʻahu. This 308-unit complex of two and three-story townhouses opened its doors in April 2013 and second phase of apartments will be completed in March 2017. Ko`oloa`ula is comprised of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units along with space for community gatherings.

The waitlist for Ko`oloa`ula – Phases I & II is closed and we are not accepting applications at this time.
When apartments are vacated and become available in the future, we will continue to call applicants off of the waitlist. Every applicant will go through a screening process for income qualifications and background checks. Therefore, there is no guarantee that an applicant will get an apartment. It can sometimes require screening many applications before a qualified applicant is found. The qualified and approved applicant holding the lowest lottery number shall receive the first available unit for their family size. The next lowest lottery number that is qualified will then get the next available apartment.
Helpful information for applicants on the waitlist:
- Applicants that change contact phone numbers or addresses must be sure to send in writing the applicant name and new contact information. If the applicant cannot be reached by phone or mail, the applicant will be removed from the waitlist. Send address changes to: Koʻoloaʻula, 91-1159 Keahumoa Parkway, #801, Ewa Beach, HI 96706.
- Applicants will be contacted in the order they are on the waitlist. It is critical that applicants return calls and continue to provide requested information within the stated deadlines. Once an applicant is called, they are in a race with others who are also called, since multiple applications must be processed at the same time for a single unit. Applicants that delay in the screening process will be bypassed by other applicants who turn in their information quickly. Unfortunately, applicants that do not respond by the deadlines will lose their opportunity for an apartment and be sent a rejection letter.
- The first month’s rent and security deposit (which is equal to the monthly rent) will be required before move in. The apartment cannot be held vacant for applicants who are trying to gather the funds when they are approved for a unit, so it is very important that applicants collect the necessary funds as soon as possible after they are called for screening if not sooner. Qualified applicants who do not have sufficient funds at move in will lose their opportunity for an apartment and cannot remain on the waitlist.
- Applicants who must give 28-days notice to their current landlords often end up with overlapping rent payments, since units cannot be held open for that long. The first qualified applicant that can move in will bypass someone with a lower waitlist number.
- The Ko`oloa`ula Learning Center After-School Program was developed to service elementary to middle school-aged children. Service-learning college students from the University of Hawaii – West Oahu typically assist over 40 children daily with their reading, math and science homework and computer work.
- Enrichment programs are being developed based on the interests of the children. Activities such as robotics, engineering, cooking classes, and arts and crafts are being planned.
- Residents are invited to join us for social holiday events and movie nights throughout the year. Resident volunteers help plan and assist with the events.
- Residents contribute to the safety of the growing Ko`oloa`ula community by taking part in Citizen Patrol walks and neighborhood security watches.
- Residents are offered on-site services such as quarterly Bank of Hawaii – Smart Money Seminars and electric bill reduction through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).
Good luck to all applicants!
