”The new Scandic hotel will be a landmark building for Helsingborg with stunning views of the harbor inlet and Öresund. Its central location makes it a perfect complement to our current hotel, Scandic Helsingborg Nord,” says Peter Jangbratt, Country Manager Scandic Sweden.
The new Scandic hotel is part of the H+ project where the old industrial harbor near the Helsingborg city center will be turned into to urban development, called Oceanhamnen. The industrial land will be completely converted into a modern area with housing, offices and trade.
At the pier where the new Scandic hotel will be situated, 32 000 square meter commercial space will be developed, becoming the new corporate hub in the city. There will also be a World Trade Center Office in the same building.
”The hotel will focus on both corporate and leisure guests, benefiting from the increasing leisure segment, specifically during the summer period which is a peak period in Helsingborg,” says Peter Jangbratt.
”The hotel will have an important function, both as a meeting place in the area and also for the hospitality industry in general in northwestern part of Skåne. In Scandic, we get a strong partner that will contribute with their industry leading expertise for a sustainable development,” says Peter Syrén, CEO of Midroc Properties.
