Lets Compare the both buildings and their amenities
Ohana Hale will have Studio and 1 bed Affordable Units. Whereas The Central Ala Moana will have Studio, 1, 2, and 3 bed Affordables.
Location | Ala Moana or Mo'ili'ili
The next biggest difference is the Location. Both are centrally located in Metro Oahu and are just a short distance from one another. One thing to keep in mind is the neighborhoods are different. The Central will be in Ala Moana whereas Ohana Hale will be in the Mo'ili'ili/McCully Area
Here is our personal opinion of the two.
When comparing the two buildings you are essentially comparing apples and oranges. Both buildings will be different not only in physical location, but the level of amenities, and all the way down to the maintenance fees of the units. The obvious similarities are that they will both feature affordable housings (both with the 10 year owner occupant hold period). It just depends on what you are looking for and which neighborhood you prefer. If you are looking for a Studio or 1 bedroom you may want to try for both as you can cross shop. But if you are hoping to get a 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom then you would have to try your luck at The Central. Both are lotteries and I am pretty sure that The Central Ala Moana will definitely have more applicants.
