Nordic hotel company Scandic Hotels Group has signed a long-term lease agreement with Midroc Properties for a new hotel in Helsingborg, Sweden that is slated to open in 2021. 

The new 180-room Scandic hotel will be near the harbor inlet, Öresund, Denmark, Malmö, Copenhagen and Gothenburg. The property will be Scandic’s second in the area, following the existing hotel Scandic Helsingborg Nord. 

The new Scandic hotel is part of the H+ project, which will convert the old industrial harbor near the Helsingborg’s city center into the Oceanhamnen urban development. This industrial land will have housing, offices and commerce space once the new development is complete. New commercial facilities and a World Trade Center Office will share the pier with the upcoming Scandic hotel.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.

The hotel group’s partner, Midroc Properties, will be the property owner of both the hotel and the World Trade Center Helsingborg. “The hotel will focus on both corporate and leisure guests, benefiting from the increasing leisure segment, specifically during the summer period which is a peak period in Helsingborg,” Peter Jangbratt, country manager, Scandic Sweden, said in a statement. 

H+ is set to be the largest urban development project in modern times in Helsingborg. With this new upcoming project, the city will have four such newly developed and existing projects by 2035.
This new hotel will join Scandic’s portfolio of approximately 280 hotels open and under development in more than 130 destinations across the Nordic region. It will also be the group’s latest addition to its 86-hotel portfolio in Sweden.
