Take me there!


Pearlridge Center is the second largest shopping center in Hawaiʻi, after Ala Moana, and is Hawaiʻi's largest enclosed shopping center, located in ʻAiea. Opened in 1972 and expanded in 1976, the enclosed mall is split into three "phases" (Uptown, Downtown, and Phase Three) and overlooks historic Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. The property includes the only monorail in Hawaiʻi, the only emergency clinic located on mall property (Pali Momi Medical Center), and an eight-story office complex (Pearlridge Office Center). The mall is owned by Washington Prime Group. It is on land owned by Kamehameha Schools.


Pearlridge consists of two major shopping areas: Pearlridge Uptown and Pearlridge Downtown. There are also two minor strip malls, Pearlridge East and Pearlridge West. The two major shopping areas are connected by the only monorail system in Hawaiʻi. Pearlridge primary anchor tenants include: Macy's (formerly Liberty House) and, until 2021, Sears. There are over 170 stores and restaurants with two food courts, and a movie theater complex with sixteen screens.

Stand-alone stores

Not attached to any of the main Pearlridge buildings on either side (ʻEwa or Diamond Head sides) of Pali Momi Medical Center are several stand-alone stores: Anna Miller's, and Inspiration Pop Up. Ross Dress for Less moved into the space vacated by Borders. The building formerly occupied by Inspiration Furniture is now occupied by Pali Momi Medical Center. Two thirds of GAP, also closed, is now owned by Victoria's Secret, while the other one third is currently unoccupied.

Stand-alone restaurants

Pearlridge also hosts several stand-alone restaurants in the mall property. Pearlridge West hosts Anna Miller's and Bravo Restaurant. Near Uptown is Monterey Bay Canners, while Downtown hosts Chili's, California Pizza Kitchen, and Big City Diner. The space once occupied by Sizzler is currently unoccupied.

Pearlridge Office Center

The Pearlridge Office Center is an eight-story office complex mainly housing financial and professional suites located towards Pearlridge East.

Sumida Farm

A unique landmark of Pearlridge is Sumida Farm, Hawaiʻi's largest watercress farm, leased on land owned by Kamehameha Schools.



One of Pearlridge's most distinctive landmarks is the Skycab, Hawaiʻi's only monorail system. Connecting both Uptown and Downtown, it provides a unique transport and a notable focal point of the center. Rides cost $1.00 one way. The monorail first ran on November 7, 1977, and was built by Rohr Industries.
