As one of Money Magazine’s best places to live in the U.S. in 2005, Mililani is the third wealthiest zip code in Hawaii. Home to 29,000 residents, Mililani sits on the former plantation fields of Castle and Cooke who started the development of the town in the early 1960s. Once a mere collection of huts to serve the local industry, Mililani has since grown to a sizeable location and new status as a satellite city. In doing so, Mililani has attempted to meet the pent-up demand for housing with a sensitively designed, affordable new community of a type unique in Hawaii. Although Mililani is largely a bedroom community for Honolulu, the town features its own commercial shopping centers, schools, parks, community centers, and a golf course, resembling more of a modern American suburban town than a locality in Hawaii. Because of the amenities offered by the community, homeowners due pay dues to the Town Association, another system unlike many other Oahu communities.
Residents of Mililani real estate houses or condominiums for sale in the area appreciate the thoughtful neighborhood design, streamlined streets, and ample resources readily available nearby. In 1986, Mililani was named an All American City, the only town in Hawaii to receive such distinction. Split by the H-2 Interstate Freeway, the older half of Mililani is referred to as Mililani Town while the newer side is called Mililani Mauka. Almost all of Mililani's commercial and retail centers are in Mililani Town. As Mililani has continued to grow, most residents find themselves working in town instead of commuting into Honolulu, although the H-2 has significantly decreased the travel time into downtown. Mililani is also home to the Mililani Golf Club, Mililani Industrial park, and is the future site of the large Oahu Arts Center Complex scheduled to break ground in the next decade.
