West Oahu was once a quiet area full of sugar cane fields. Fast forward to present day and West Oahu is the fastest growing part of the island. Thousands of new homes and employment opportunities are driving its rapid growth. Ewa, Kapolei, Makakilo, and Ko Olina are master-planned communities in West Oahu that together are creating Oahu's "Second City", that one day may rival Honolulu.
The concept of being self-sufficient, being able to live, work, and play outside of Honolulu, is attracting homebuyers to relocate out west. Many local businesses and national big box retailers have already made the move to meet the new demand. Disney has invested into the West Oahu boom and opened their resort, Aulani, at Ko Olina. The multi-billion dollar Honolulu Rail Transit System will begin in Kapolei and eventually end up in Honolulu linking the two major hubs together with alternative transportation.
If you have never considered buying a home in West Oahu, you should really explore everything this area has to offer.
