The City of Aiea is located in Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. When referring to Aiea real estate, most people are talking about the area from the northern shore of East Loch of Pearl Harbor to Aiea Bay, including the area rising to the Ko'olau Mountains. Kamehameha Highway divides most of Aiea from the Pearl Harbor shore and interstate freeway H-1 cuts Aiea's commercial district into two distinct areas. These east-west routes connect Aiea to Pearl City immediately adjacent to the west and the Halawa to the east. Residential Aiea Heights extends up the ridgeline above the town.
Originally an ahupua'a (Hawaiian land division), the Honolulu Plantation Co. opened a plantation for sugar cane production at the end of the 19th century in Aiea real estate. Much of the Aiea shoreline is actually located on Pearl Harbor. The USS Vestal was run ashore in Aiea Bay to avoid sinking. The plantation was shut down after WWII and was then turned into a sugar refinery. The previous sugar cane fields became residential developments. In 1996, the refinery was closed by C&H Sugar, thus ending Aiea's sugar history. In 1998, the owners tore down the old refinery even amongst the protestations of local residents.
The Hawaii Department of Education oversees all public education of students living in Aiea real estate. The Aiea school system includes five elementary schools, one intermediate school and one high school in the public school system and seven private schools.
