Construction Progress on Puako Bay, Hawaii

Along the Kailua-Kona Coast, construction is moving along for a new modern residence that incorporates indoor/outdoor living and the natural beauty of the Hawaiian islands. The original renders can be viewed in our portfolio.


Behind the home, you see the observation tower, Mauna Kea, at the highest point in Hawaii.
