Dole Cannery Office Building

The Dole Cannery property has several buildings. The offices were used as a filming location, and is in a separate structure from the retail shops, and the parking structure was also filmed. Of particular interest, Lost's production offices were formerly here in the office building. See also the nearby Iwilei Rd. corner.

Dr. Christian Shephard's office in St. Sebastian Hospital. Note that this is a corner unit.
 

Note also that the windows on the left side of the corner are at least 5 panes across. Also note the buildings in the background, as well as the lowrise at right that is dark red with a zigzag roofline. Note balcony rail outside window.

This view is from the 6th floor elevator lobby. The skyline matches, as does the dark lowrise zigzag roof (above the lighter colored zigzag roof). Therefore the corner unit that was filmed was along the corner that we can see here at center, probably one floor higher on the top 7th floor.
Note also the Dole Cannery parking structure at far right.

The view from the 3rd floor is too low; the red zigzag roof is not visible, and other low rises begin to obscure the skyline.
 
The view from the ground level concludes the search: The top 7th floor is the only corner unit (red arrow) with windows on both corners where the left one is 5 or more panes across. Furthermore, the view of this wide window matches that of the vantage from the elevator lobby window photo (yellow arrow)
 
The business at this location is Roberts Hawai'i, a large local tour operator. Trivia: a Roberts Hawai'i tour bus is breifly visible at the Hawai'i Convention Center in a Sydney Airport scene in Episode 1x06 House of the Rising Sun.
 
A side view through the entrance doors shows windows.

St. Sebastian Hospital conference room.
Again note the windows with at least 5 panes across, as well as structural elements of the building (column and balcony) outside the window.
This unit depicting the hospital conference room is also on the 7th floor, due to the column and balcony railing visible outside the wide (more than 4 panes) windows. It is very likely this location is also the Roberts Hawai'i office.
