A new Kakaako condo known as The Lofts at The Collection sold out quickly over the weekend as dozens waited in line for hours to score a unit, Pacific Business News reported Monday.

The condo has 54 units, including 48 studios starting at $349,000 and six two-bedroom units starting at $540,000.

Some homebuyers lined up as early as 1:30 a.m. before sales opened at 9 a.m., PBN reported.

The condo is part of a project by Alexander and Baldwin that includes a 397-unit condo tower, 70 midrise homes and a parking garage with 914 stalls.

Despite the high demand for condo units, the project has been controversial. Residents of the neighboring One Waterfront Towers appealed the state’s decision to approve the project last year, citing impacts on the area’s infrastructure.
