Forenom to open Malmo apartments in converted shipyard offices

Sweden: Forenom’s conversion of the former Kockum administration building in Varvsstaden is set to open on schedule later this month.

This district’s first aparthotel will feature 97 individually designed apartments, keeping the character of the former use of the building, which was built in 1912, and designed by Malmö architect Axel Stenberg. All apartments include a kitchen and a bathroom.

Henrik Thomasson, Forename’s newly appointed country manager in Sweden, said: “I am very pleased that we ended up with everything perfectly on schedule. Everyone involved in the construction process and in Varvsstaden has been equally professional and committed. The project has been able to flow smoothly despite its size.”

“We have guided this old building into the future, and it hasn’t always been easy. But there is such a strong local commitment throughout the Västra Hamnen district. The feedback from our future neighbours, guests and suppliers has been fantastic and it is of course very motivating,” said Måns Friberg, regional manager at Forenom.

Malmö is growing rapidly and there is an increasing need among companies that hire consultants and guest workers to find accommodation for longer periods of time – often up to a couple of months. The location of Varvsstaden – between the city center of Malmö and the sea, just a few minutes from the Central Station is ideal for people as well as for businesses.
