Designed to be 100 percent climate-neutral during its lifetime, take a look at the newly-announced Scandic Sundsvall, a sustainable 210-room property coming to Sundsvall, Sweden in 2024

With eco-escapes on the rise and sustainable travel more important than ever, Scandic Hotels has signed a long-term lease agreement with Skanska for a new 210-room hotel in downtown Sundsvall, Sweden.

The stylish new hotel, which will be located in the city’s harbour area, will be built of wood, giving it a very high environmental standard. Expected to open during 2024, the green-minded hotel will be called Scandic Sundsvall Central.

Situated next to Sundsvall’s harbour and railway station, Scandic Sundsvall will have 210 rooms and a restaurant and bar area on the ground floor. One floor up, guests will be able to enjoy the hotel’s spa and wellness facilities, gym and meeting rooms while taking in the spectacular view of the Bothnian Sea.

Of course, the most important feature of the new property will be its sustainable ethos – the building has been designed to be 100 percent climate-neutral during its lifetime. The property’s frame, facade and interior will be made of wood, meeting the requirements for the high-ranking environmental certification, LEED Gold. With its choice of energy-efficient materials and solar panels on the roof, the new hotel will also maintain a very high energy standard.

Sundsvall is an attractive hotel market that boasts a strong local business community and growing tourism industry. Scandic already operates two hotels in Sundsvall with a total of 312 rooms.

“Scandic’s new hotel in Sundsvall will be a modern and attractive meeting place ideally located in an exciting area where we can see a growing demand for hotel accommodations. We’ve been developing the hotel together with Skanska for the past two years and naturally, it feels extremely positive to be further strengthening our hotel offering in the city,” commented Peter Jangbratt, Head of Scandic Hotels Sweden.
