The Oulu City Building Board granted a building permission to the Oulu Market Hotel on the 8th of April, 2015.

The hotel, situated between the Oulu Market Hall and the shoreline, has approx. 130 rooms for accommodation. In addition, the plan includes restaurant and commercial spaces and basement parking. Large, semi-warm multi-purpose hall, the so-called Winter Market, will be built between the market hall and the hotel. On the side of the old wooden storehouses the hotel facades will be made of timber cladding and on the market hall side, of red brick.

The principal designer of the hotel in our office is architect SAFA, LicTech Jukka Laaksonen. The project scope is approx. 7300 gross m2. Preliminary data suggest that construction would begin in the autumn of 2016.
