Queen Emma Gardens Residents are also proud of their swimming pool and a separate wading pool for children. There are also several play areas, a swing set, BBQ areas and picnic sites around the expansive Garden. Those of us that live here feel blessed to call QEG our home. 


Our Heritage


Queen Emma Gardens has been a fixture of downtown Honolulu since its completion in 1964. Designed by renowned architect Minoru Yamasaki. It is a relaxing environment that captures the trade winds, keeping units naturally cool. Our property was developed as part of a larger project to renew and redevelop one of the city's oldest slums, a Five-block area bounded by six streets; School, Queen Emma, Kukui, Fort, Vineyard, College Walk and the Nuuanu Stream. With the goal of creating a thriving community without exorbitant rent. Its name is from the Monarch Queen Emma, who historically owned the land that induced Foster Botanical Gardens and Nuuanu Stream.
