Gothia Towers is currently building its third tower, and at the same time is also adding to the existing East Tower. All building work will be completed in January 2015, by which time the number of hotel rooms will have grown by more than 500 to a total of 1,200. “The construction will take place in two stages,” explains Petter Ullberg, Deputy Managing Director of the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and Business Area Manager Gothia Towers. “Six more floors are being added to the middle tower – the current East Tower – which will be opened in summer 2013.”
In addition to around 50 exclusive hotel rooms, the new tower will also include a wellness centre with three pools, a gym, a sauna and Turkish baths. The third tower – the new East Tower – will be 29 storeys high, with just over 450 rooms, and is expected to open in January 2015.
Gothenburg’s tallest building
The number of hotel rooms will increase by more than 500. The new hotel will then have more than 1,200 rooms, making it one of the fifth biggest in Europe. Gothia Towers’ third tower will be 100 metres tall, making it Gothenburg’s tallest building.
Europe’s largest – and a unique meeting place
Gothia Towers is part of the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. Once the expansion is completed, Gothenburg and the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre will boast Europe’s largest fully integrated hotel, exhibition and conference facility. “This will make us one of the international meetings industry’s absolute elite venues,” says Roger Holtback, Chairman of the Board of the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. “Our decision to invest billions of kronor in this project means that this will be by far the biggest investment the centre has ever made. The main reason for this is to make us a serious contender when it comes to competing for conferences and events at a global level.”
