The KÃ¤mp Tower, a Major Hotel Project Starting in JÃ¤tkÃ¤saari, Helsinki, Finland
HELSINKI, November 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Norwegian developer Arthur Buchardt, in cooperation with the hotel and restaurant company Palace KÃ¤mp Group, based in Helsinki, Finland, will start a major hotel project designed by Architects Davidsson Tarkela Oy. As a result, a 26,000 square meter hotel and conference centre will be opened in JÃ¤tkÃ¤saari, Helsinki, in November 2014. KÃ¤mp Tower will also become a lively tourist attraction: its vantage point at the height of 120 meters will be the highest viewpoint in central Helsinki.
Currently the hotels around the capital region combined offer hotel services with a capacity of 11,000 rooms. During the last 20 years, the hotel market has grown an average of 3.5 per cent each year, which, in terms of capacity, is approximately 350 rooms per year. The new KÃ¤mp Tower will increase the accommodation capacity in 2014 by a total amount of 380 rooms. Â The name and the concept of the hotel will be released closer to the grand opening, but it is already clear that with this new project Palace KÃ¤mp Group will meet the needs of both consumer and business customers. The turnover goal for KÃ¤mp Tower's first operational year is €20 million and it will provide employment to approximately 200 people. The impact on the employment situation is already significant during the building stage.
In addition to hotel services, KÃ¤mp Tower will also meet the Helsinki capital region's demands for meeting and conference facilities with its significant conference capacity. Â Thanks to many side-by-side meeting rooms, KÃ¤mp Tower can accommodate events for up to 1,200 people. The seven meter-high rooms make assembling various exhibition structures and organizing different music or concert events fully feasible. KÃ¤mp Tower will also include an assembly hall for up to 800 guests.
The hotel services will be of international top quality. The 2,500m2 spa and health club and the pool with a view of the sea on the sixth floor of the tower will open new dimensions for hotel experiences. The sun terrace will be on the 29th floor of the hotel, at a height of 100 meters. The restaurants in the new KÃ¤mp Tower will seat over 500 customers. Â The hotel will be furnished with the high-quality design furniture by top designers from both Finland and abroad, among them Alvar Aalto.
KÃ¤mp Tower will make Helsinki an even more attractive destination for foreign visitors: it will be the tallest building in the city centre. Â The Sky Bar & Restaurant will offer top-level restaurant services on the 34th floor, at a height of 100 meters. The terrace on the 35th floor of the tower, at a height of 120 meters, will be open to the public and will offer the opportunity to enjoy the views of the city and the sea from a unique perspective.
