The 1,700-square-foot ground-floor café is scheduled to open in 2022 and will be the third Hawaii location for the gourmet food shop and the first outside Waikiki — Dean & Deluca Hawaii also has stores at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach and at Royal Hawaiian Center.
In addition to gourmet food and baked items, the café will also feature outdoor seating, a deli, coffee bar, wine and gourmet picnic baskets.
The Howard Hughes Corp. (NYSE: HHC) broke ground on the 565-unit, 41-story Koula in July, six months after starting sales. The building will have a total of 36,000 square feet of commercial space on the first two floors of the building.
“Koula’s location alongside Victoria Ward Park is the perfect place for Dean & DeLuca in Ward Village,” Todd Apo, senior vice president of community development at The Howard Hughes Corp. said in a statement. “Family and friends will have the opportunity to gather for an afternoon picnic in the park and watch keiki play while enjoying some of the freshest food selections on the island.”
Koula was designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang, with interiors by Yabu Pushelberg. Prices for the units started at $514,000 for a podium unit, while tower units were priced from the $600,000s to the mid $2.4 millions. Howard Hughes said in July that the building was 64% pre-sold.
