The nine storey Sokos hotel will have around 200 rooms and will accommodate nearly 500 guests. The new hotel will be operated by Turun Osuuskauppa and owned by Rausanne Oy.

“Until now, the Kupittaa area has been lacking in hotel services. In addition to catering to our shareholder customers, Original Sokos Hotel Kupittaa will in particular respond to the accommodation needs of businesses, institutes of higher education, hospitals as well as research and sports activities,” says Mikko Eskelinen, Divisional Director, Tourism and hospitality at Turun Osuuskauppa.

“It’s great to be involved in developing hotel services in Turku and the area of Kupittaa. The location is perfect for a hotel,” says Arto Puolimatka, CEO of Rausanne Oy.

Original Sokos Hotel Kupittaa is the third phase in the Intelligate project located in Kupittaa at the centre of the Turku Science Park, adjacent to the Turku–Helsinki motorway and the Kupittaa railway station. Once completed in spring 2020, the hotel will have direct indoor access to the railway station. YIT has previously carried out phases I and II of the Intelligate project.

“It is fantastic to be able to complete a set of three interlinked buildings. Once the third phase of Intelligate, which is currently under construction, is complete, the modern hotel building will complement the business and office facility services available in the area,” comments Jyrki Meri, Vice President, YIT.
