The grand opening has taken place for the Mercure Katowice Centrum hotel, which has been developed in the centre of the city by UBM Development.
The hotel, which will operate under the Accor brand, has 268 rooms on eight floors. It is LEED ‘Platinum’ certified and recently also received the PLGBC Green Building Award 2021 for sustainable real estate development. It has been sold by UBM to Union Investment in a deal that was announced in early 2020.
“With the opening of a hotel in one of Poland’s largest industrial regions, we want to play a decisive and active role in the green transformation of Katowice. Environmentally-friendly technology can be found in every corner of the Mercure Katowice Centrum – from the planted wall on the building’s façade to sustainable solutions in the interior, including the use of environmentally-friendly materials, renewable energy sources, rainwater and an advanced monitoring system for the water and energy management.” said Andrzej Kleeberg, Mercure Katowice Centrum’s general manager.
