Historical icon turned shopping center that's virtually empty.
Aloha Tower Marketplace is a shopping mall that contains the Aloha Tower, one of Hawaii's most recognized buildings.
Aloha Tower HistoryThe tower opened in 1926 and offered spectacular harbor views housed a lookout station for harbor pilots. The lighthouse served as a navigation beacon that could be seen from 15 miles out at sea. The clock was one of the largest in the United States.
At one point, it was the tallest building in Honolulu and was known as Honolulu's "Statue of Liberty" as it welcomed immigrants to the island. During World War II, the tower was taken over by the military and even painted in camouflage. The camouflage was sandblasted off in 1947 and the Aloha Tower reopened in 1948.
Aloha Tower & Marketplace TodayThe tower still serves as a major landmark in Honolulu and something visitors see as they approach on a cruise ship. The marketplace is intended to be an open air dining and shopping complex but doesn't offer very many of those options at this time. We're hopeful that this place will become something great once again.
