REFURBISHMENT GATHERS MOMENTUM
Things are really happening now at the junction of Östra Hamngatan and Kungsportsplatsen! Refurbishment of the Hernhutaren block has begun, a classic Gothenburg address that was home to both the owner of Meeths varuhus and GP's editorial team and printworks.
Semrén & Månsson has designed for Wallenstam a refurbishment which involves replacing the roof with a glass roof with graphic banding, providing a modern, bright office environment. This project meets Green Building Silver requirements, and the building is expected to be ready to move into by the spring of 2015.
Danske Bank will be occupying most of the building with its customer office on the ground floor, opening out onto Östra Hamngatan. Shoe shop Karltex has already moved into a new shop which opens out onto the square, and Apoteket Kronan will also have a new entrance there.
