ROYAL HAWAIIAN ESTATES
The Royal Hawaiian Estates is an excellent example of Tiki-themed modern architecture in Palm Springs. The buildings are the work of master architects, Ric Harrison, and Donald Wexler, and thus are significant for their association with prolific local architects of national prominence.
The building represents the overall residential development during the post-war era and contributes to the mid-century modernist character so strongly identified with Palm Springs.
On February 3rd, 2010, the Palm Springs City Council voted 4-1 to make the Royal Hawaiian Estates the first residential historic district in the city of Palm Springs!
