Gigantic 33-storey hotel planned to go up in Helsinki’s Jätkäsaari

A 33-storey hotel is planned to be built in Helsinki’s Jätkäsaari by A Norwegian investor Arthur Buchardt. The hotel - provisonally named the Kämp Tower - will be about 120 metres high.

Arthur Buchardt has chosen architects Aki Davidsson and Jaana Tarkela to design the hotel. According to Davidsson, Helsinki’s officials have given green light for the gigantic building.

The gross floor area of the building would be 30,000 square metres, housing 380 rooms, restaurants, convertible congress and concert premises for up to 1,000 persons, a fitness and wellbeing centre, a sky bar, and a lookout terrace, as well as a wedding chapel.

Buchardt is aiming to open the Kämp Tower Hotel on New Year’s Eve in 2014.
