Project of the Week: Scandic Hotel Frankfurt Hafenpark

by | 19 Oct 2020 | Projects

Frankfurt will soon be home to a new state-of-the-art conference and event hotel as part of a major development right alongside the Main river.

The Nordic region’s largest hotel operator Scandic is looking forward to the launch of the 505-room Scandic Hotel Hafenpark, which is currently under construction, by mid-2022. We find out more about this forthcoming opening.

Scandic set to expand German footprint

Scandic is going to run one of Frankfurt’s largest conference hotels, having signed a long-term lease agreement with B&L Group in 2017. Hadi Teherani Architects and prash buken partner architekten, both from Hamburg, are behind the hotel’s stunning design, creating an elegant modern structure that will blend in well with its surroundings and offer a spacious and inviting atmosphere.

On top of the 505 rooms, the property will boast 2,000 sq m of modern conference and events space, including a 600 sq m ballroom – one of the largest in the city. Additionally, guests will be able to avail themselves of cutting-edge fitness facilities, plus an appealing restaurant and bar.

“The hotel in Hafenpark is in line with Scandic’s strategy to expand in the largest cities in Germany,” said Even Frydenberg, president and CEO, Scandic Hotels Group, when the company announced the deal with B&L Group.

“The addition of this second hotel in Frankfurt will not only raise awareness of Scandic but also consolidate our presence in the German market, creating synergies with the Scandic Frankfurt Museumsufer that will open in February. The two hotels complement each other well and they will also boost our operating performance and market share.”

Frankfurt’s new business and lifestyle hub

The Scandic Hotel Frankfurt Hafenpark will be part of the mixed-use Hafenpark Quartier development, which is set on the Main river, only a stone’s throw from the European Central Bank (ECB) and downtown Frankfurt.

“This is an amazing opportunity for Scandic Hotels. Frankfurt is a major financial centre and global commercial hub,” commented Michel Schutzbach, country manager Germany at Scandic Hotels Europe. “We expect the new hotel to perform well on the market due to its many revenue streams and great location next to the ECB.”
