Alexander & Baldwin Inc.’s real estate subsidiary paid $23 million to Kamehameha Schools to purchase the three-acre former CompUSA lot in Kakaako, the site of the Honolulu-based developer’s 465-unit mixed-use The Collection condominium project, according to public records.

In October, A&B Properties Inc. said it purchased the lot, which is bounded by Ala Moana Boulevard, and Auahi, South and Keawe Streets, from Kamehameha Schools for an undisclosed price.

The $200 million project, which is made up of three residential components — The Tower’s 397 units, The Lofts @ The Collection’s 54 units and 14 urban townhomes — began construction in October at the 600 Ala Moana Blvd. site.

The tower part of the project is more than 75 percent sold, while the lofts sold out within a day. The townhomes are expected to be on the market before the end of the year.

A&B Properties said that Hawaii residents represent 85 percent of buyers to date of the tower and loft components of The Collection.

The project is estimated to be completed in late 2016.

Alexander & Baldwin Inc.’s subsidiary has acquired the three acre former CompUSA lot in Kakaako from Kamehameha Schools that it will use to develop its 466-unit mixed-use The Collection condominium project. Construction is scheduled to start soon and estimated to be completed in late 2016.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Located at 600 Ala Moana Blvd., the $200 million project is made up of three residential components.

The Tower, which is currently 76 percent sold, and includes 397 units in a 43-story building, is the project’s initial component.

The second phase is The Lofts @ The Collection, which consists of 54 condo residences within a four-story mid-rise building, and sold out in less than a day.

Plans for the final phase of The Collection, 14 urban townhomes, will be announced at a later date.

The Collection, which is bounded by Ala Moana Boulevard, and Auahi, South and Keawe Streets, also has 13,000-square-feet of commercial space planned for shops and restaurants.
