Commentary - Queen Emma Gardens: Building and Site Features
In 1963, Queen Emma Gardens was designed by famous Japanese architect Minou Yamasaki (designer of World Trade Center, 1973, NYC) It is an oasis of outdoor living on a large eight acre parcel of land in the midst of busy downtown Honolulu. The project consists of three residential buildings, the King, Queen and Prince Towers. The King and Queen have larger units than the Prince. All Buildings are connected to the gardens by tall and breezy open air lobbies. The gardens are well manicured and feature many mature Monkey Pod, Plumeria and Bamboo trees.
Common Areas for Residents
The tall open air lobby of the King tower houses the management and security office. Each building has security guards, but no building key or fob is required to enter the building or elevators.
Outdoor amenities include two swimming pools, a playground, and a jogging path. The highlights of the gardens are two Japanese tea houses on koi ponds shaded by mature trees. The teahouses are a common amenity and can be reserved by owners for gatherings.
There is plenty of parking for guests outside with least 36 guest stalls plus loading zones near the entrances. The parking structure is underground, covered by the landscaped gardens.
