Kapolei is often referred to as the “second city” on Oahu and is located on the Ewa Plain at the base of Waianae Mountain, spreading out to the coastline. Named after a volcano, Kapolei was at one time largely agricultural, growing both sugarcane and pineapples. Today Kapolei is a growing urban center, with continued job growth and real estate development.
Kapolei housing construction began in the 1980s and there are currently approximately 800 businesses in the city. The idea behind its creation was to create another city where people could live, work and play much like in Honolulu. While Kapolei is still considered largely a bedroom community, it is growing toward its intended direction.
Kapolei has a public library, post office and schools. Top ranked schools in Kapolei include Kapolei Elementary School, Makakilo Elementary School, Mauka Lani Elementary School, Barbers Point Elementary School and Kapolei High School. There is also a private pre-K through 12th grade school in Kapolei. In total, there are 8 preschools, 8 elementary schools, 4 middle schools and 4 high schools in Kapolei.
Construction is a big industry in Kapolei as the city continues to grow and demand for new homes increases. In addition, job growth has been steady in the area and is expected to grow continuously over the next decade. For those looking for new homes on Oahu, Kapolei certainly has a lot to offer.
Kapolei is considered a coastal town that is medium in size but expected to be a large city at some point in the future. Kapolei real estate is favorable for families due to its large selection of schools and well-planned communities.
