Moving Up, In Style

The Vanguard Lofts is featured in the November issue of Hawaii Home & Remodeling:

“It’s kind of ‘South Beach’ from an energy standpoint,” Staub says. “It has a sophisticated tonal palette that gives it an uptown feel. I would call it ‘urban resort.’ That’s what Miami Beach does so well. They don’t shy away from the urban nature. But they still layer in the cabanas and the chaises and the hot tubs — all the things people expect.”

Additional Two-Bedroom Lofts


Construction has been moving steadily forward, and in response to your requests, we have updated our floorplans to include additional two-bedroom lofts.

We invite you to stop by and experience our updated sales center, which has been relocated upstairs, next door to our fully-finished model loft. As construction nears completion, many of our lofts are now available for a walk-through, including access to the private rooftop decks. Come and see the difference.

December 2009 – Construction Update


From all of us at The Vanguard Lofts we wish you and your families a joyous and safe Holiday season.

Here are some photos of the latest progress.

Hot In The City

Modern Luxury September 2008

The Vanguard Lofts are featured in September 2008 issue of Modern Luxury. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Honolulu’s new Vanguard Lofts on Kapiolani Boulevard are the answer to city living with the amenities of a suburban condo lifestyle—and none of the bustle of Waikiki. Thirty-two 1, 2 and 3-bedroom loft apartments will span six floors, at an average of 1,500 square feet each… Another perk at Vanguard: All the kitchens are a gourmet’s dream. Top-of-the-line Thermador gas appliances run throughout, deep-set counters (“to store all table-top appliances,” Deuchar added) and a public “Sky Deck” with swimming pool, BBQ area, Jacuzzi tub, cabana and bar are available to all owners.
