The Vanguard Lofts is a mixed-use loft building with 34 residential lofts and 3,616 square feet of ground floor retail. The building was once the first used car dealership in all of Hawaii, back in 1907. In 1965, the old National Cash Register (NCR) bought it as an office and added another section, hiring renowned architect Vladimir Ossipoff. Since then, the historic building has been renovated and converted into a modern and sophisticated living space. With high ceilings, large windows, exposed pipes and vents, the Vanguard Lofts is a progressive, stylish option for residents. Its location in 720 Kapiolani Boulevard places it within the Kakaako and midtown Honolulu neighborhoods – an exciting area bustling with prime shopping, eating and entertainment options.
Vanguard Lofts is located in Kakaako, Honolulu’s fastest developing urban core, which means you’ll be able to walk to a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options.

Waikiki is only a short drive away, and the Neal Blaisdell Center, where big shows and concerts are held, is within walking distance.
