Finnish hotel and restaurant company Palace Kämp Group is to build a major hotel project in Jätkäsaari, Helsinki, Finland.
The proposed Kämp Tower will be a 26,000m2 hotel and conference centre, which will open in November 2014.
The hotel was designed by architects Davidsson Tarkela Oy and developed by Norwegian Arthur Buchardt.
The property, once completed, will be the tallest building in the city, and its vantage point, at a height of 120m, will also be the highest viewpoint in central Helsinki.
A 2,500m2 spa and health club, which will have a pool with a sea view and a sun terrace, will open new dimensions for hotel experiences.
Restaurants in the new Kämp Tower will seat over 500 customers, and the Sky Bar & Restaurant will offer top-level restaurant services on the 34th floor.
The group will furnish the hotel with high-quality design furniture by designers from Finland and abroad.
A terrace on the 35th floor of the tower, which will be 120m above ground, will be open to the public, offering the opportunity to enjoy views of the city and the sea.
The Kämp Tower will add 380 rooms to the 11,000 operating in and around Helsinki.
The Helsinki region has been experiencing high demand for conference facilities; the hotel will help fulfil this need by accommodating up to 1,200 guests for events, with side-by-side meeting rooms adding flexibility.
The Palace Kämp Group observed that during the last 20 years, the region’s hotel industry has grown at an average of 3.5% a year, which is approximately 350 rooms per year in terms of capacity.
The group expects €20m turnover from Kämp Tower’s first operational year.
