Honolulu Hale

fokopoint-8817 Honolulu Hale

Honolulu Hale is the official City Hall building of the City and County of Honolulu. Designed by Dickey, Wood and others, this Spanish mission style building features open-to-the-sky courtyards, hand-painted ceiling frescos, 1,500-pound bronze front doors, and 4,500-pound courtyard chandeliers. The main entry faces King Street, behind a zig-zag pattern of planters, and the exterior of the building is complex, with deeply fenestrated windows and balconies of carved stone. The tower is particularly complex and features varied window treatments, open and closed balconies, loggias and cast-concrete grill work.

Honolulu Hale is located at 530 South King Street, across the street from the Iolani Palace grounds and the Kanaina building to its northwest, and the Territorial Office Building and Ali’iolani Hale Building to its east.
