The ‘Długi Targ’ development project (estimated development budget: Euro 11 million) is based on refurbishment and conversion of three historical semidetached city houses into a unique 90 room hotel with a total area of app. 4.500 m2.
With history of over 1000 years, Gdańsk is one of the oldest, one of the most dynamic, most popular tourist destinations in Poland. Together with Gdynia and Sopot, Gdańsk forms a conurbation of over 1.2 million inhabitants. Gdańsk, as the capital of the Pomerania Province is also an important academic and business centre in the country.
‘Długi Targ’ Hotel Development Project is a unique property acquired by Von der Heyden Group in a complex tender from Bank Millennium S.A. some years back and is located in the most attractive part in the heart of Gdańsk, at the corner of historical Długi Targ Boulevard and Mieszczanska Street, almost opposite to the Neptun’s Statute and the Dwór Artusa Building.
A complex tender for a General Contractor for construction works has been won by the locally based, renowned company, Allcon Sp. z o.o. sp. k. and the construction agreement was signed in April 2016. The chosen architect for the ‘Długi Targ’ Project is also a locally based company ‘Architectonica’ S.A. and the interior design is made by ‘TOYA Design’ Sp. z o.o. from Poznań. The Project Manger is ‘Probuild’ Sp. z o.o. The financing Bank for the Project is Alior Bank S.A.
The initial concept of Von der Heyden Group was to create a top 5* refined boutique hotel, however, due to changing market environment, the initial idea responded the local market needs and an efficient and trendy 3* Superior hotel will be created. The building will also have prime retail space on the ground floor. The characteristics of the external façade will be preserved, however at the same time, the interiors will be modern and full of innovative solutions.
The IBB Hotel Długi Targ in Gdańsk will be opened in late summer 2017 and will be managed by IBB Hotel Collection (IBBHC). In Poland, IBBHC successully operates two renowned 4* hotels: IBB Grand Hotel Lublinianka in Lublin and IBB Andersia Hotel in Poznań, both enjoying the best results in terms of REVPAR and occupancy. IBBBHC operates as well two 4* hotels and two 3* hotels in Germany, as well as three hotels in Spain: one 5* hotel, one 4* hotel and one 3* hotel (more info about IBBHC: http://www.ibbhotels.com).
In the new hotel in Gdańsk, guests will have 90 rooms and comfortable apartments at their disposal located on five above-ground storeys. The hotel will offer business facilities such as free in-room internet and business corners with a computer/printer for a public use. The hotel will also be focused on touristic groups with a drive-in access for busses, being the only hotel in the area with such a convenience. The venue will also offer retail lease and exquisite boutiques.
The city of Gdańsk will offer unforgettable memories and numerous events like e.g. St. Dominic’s Fair that is held in Długi Targ Boulevard, it’s the oldest dated from the 13th century, the most famous, and one of the largest open air events in Europe that attracts about 6.5 mln guests to Gdańsk every summer.
‘Długi Targ’ Hotel Project will be the first development project of Von der Heyden Group in Gdańsk and the Group is actively observing the local market for further opportunities there.
