Large parts of the existing building have also undergone an expansion and upgrade, with special focus on new conference rooms, a larger restaurant, a new gym and an expanded pool area, as well as six new hotel rooms.

The new building is BREEAM-certified and is built with modern materials for less climate impact.

“We are very happy with the result of our large investment in Luleå, one of Norrland's largest cities which we have strong conviction for as a destination. In collaboration with Scandic and Peab, we have developed a strong and modern hotel product that attracts both leisure and business travelers. In total, the hotel now has 273 rooms which makes it Luleå's largest", says Erik Hvesser, Senior Vice President, Director of Property Management Nordics.
