Kungsleden congratulates Stockholm and its tenant Nobis to the grand opening of a new oasis in the city – the design hotel Blique by Nobis, where Vasastan meets the new Hagastaden.
Kungsleden has, together with its tenants the hotel operator Nobis Hospitality Group and the coworking company Convendum, developed the Blästern 14 block at Gävlegatan 18 to a new destination with hotel, restaurants, roof terrace, coworking spaces and more. Tomorrow, on April 26, the hotel Blique by Nobis opens and late 2019 or early 2020 Convendum will open up coworking spaces in the property.
“This is a milestone for both the blocks around Gävlegatan and for us at Kungsleden. We have worked with the development of Blästern since 2014 and it is a large and prestigious project in an architecturally and historically interesting property,” says Biljana Pehrsson, CEO of Kungsleden.
Gävlegatan is situated right next to Torsplan and connects Vasastan to the new district Hagastaden. Blique by Nobis becomes a hub in the area, which is also known as Stockholm’s gallery quarters. The hotel has 249 rooms of which 58 are studios with kitchenette for longer stays. In addition, there are 2 220 square meter public spaces with two restaurants, three bars and a roof terrace with stunning views. The hotel also has flexible event and meeting facilities, with 10 meeting rooms and a larger event room of 370 square meters adjacent to the hotel courtyard.
The property Blästern 14 has a unique history that extends back to the 1930s when architect Sigurd Lewerentz, who was a leading functionalist pioneer, designed offices and magazines on the property for Philips’ Swedish operations.
