The property, which previously housed the Malmö Concert Hall and a hotel and office premises, will undergo a total interior refurbishment. The lower part of the building, which has previously housed the concert hall, will be converted into new office premises for the Public Employment Service. 225 hotel rooms and a restaurant and lobby bar will be built for Choice Hotels in the high-rise part of the building. The total refurbishment area is 24,000 square meters.

The property location opposite Malmö City Hall, at the junction of Amiralsgatan and Föreningsgatan, which are two streets with frequent bus traffic, imposes considerable demands on the ability to handle logistics and material management.

“We are pleased to be entrusted with the construction of this well-known building in central Malmö. We will create new, functional premises with low energy consumption and a good indoor climate. A lot of time and effort will also be dedicated to the implementation process in order to minimize disruption for the surrounding area,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building Sweden.  

Construction is scheduled to start in May 2017.
