Located in the heart of one of Hawaii’s most iconic neighborhoods, Waikiki Market is a re-imagined grocery and food destination where visitors and residents can experience the flavors of Hawaii in an upscale, community-focused setting.
The 32,000 SF modern retail complex is the only full-service and locally owned grocery store in Waikiki, which features a variety of regional and international brands, food and beverage options, in addition to traditional market goods. The two-story super store anchors a brand-new residential high-rise tower and dawns generous open-air seating areas along with Hawaii-inspired interiors and art that catch the eye from the ground level.
The buildout encompasses live food preparation stations that celebrate Hawaii’s rich culinary heritage, two full-service restaurants, and critical back-of-house spaces furnished with specialty equipment that link operations of the commercial kitchens, food counters and grocery store.

Throughout construction, Rider Levett Bucknall’s on-site team was adaptable to dynamic project conditions and maintained strong lines of communication among the contractor, consultants and vendors to effectively deliver a new flagship grocery store for the Waikiki community.
