In a few weeks, ACHAT will kick-start the new LOGINN Hotel at Bahnhofstrasse 81 (Corner of Devizesstrasse) in Waiblingen. The first task – demolition of the former structure of Hotel Koch. The property owner is the Waiblingen based Alpenland Grundstücksgesellschaft.
AVONIA Real Estate GmbH of Leinfelden-Echterdingen has been contracted as the project developer. Reimund Sigel, CEO of AVONIA Real Estate GmbH said, “We are really excited to revitalize this prominent hotel location with a novel, modern concept.”
A premium budget hotel will arise on the 1,700 sqm lot, comprising 136 double rooms, an underground parking garage for 27 vehicles, and 4 parking spots outside. This complex of 6,200 sqm gross floor space will have a ground floor, six upper floors (roughly 4,900 sqm), and a roughly 1,300 sqm sized basement. The building has a staggered form designed by CIP Architekten GmbH of Stuttgart, involving a total investment of around EUR 22 million.
The construction permit was issued early in 2021. Reimund Sigel praised the cooperation between the City of Waiblingen and the Economic development department: “Everyone worked closely together and stayed focused on addressing all permit related aspects.”
The Mayor, Andreas Hesky, added, “This new hotel is situated right next to the train station, and will greatly boost the availability of rooms for overnight stays in Waiblingen. At the top of Bahnhofstrasse, this hotel creates an ideal entry to the downtown area, underscoring its urbanity.”
The Stuttgart branch of Köster GmbH (formerly Baresel GmbH) will serve as the general contractor for the construction. Project controller is the Stuttgart based real estate consultant Zyklu5 GmbH, whose CEO Thomas Hetzel stated, “We estimate the demolition and construction will take almost two years, which means an opening around April 2023.”
The ACHAT Hotel Group from Mannheim has signed a long-term lease to operate the complex. The LOGINN Hotel brand in Waiblingen is the 36th of its kind under the wings of this group. Philipp Freiherr v. Bodman, Managing Director of ACHAT Hotels explained, “Even during the COVID pandemic, it is critical to continue long-term planning and grow in strategic key regions. Hence, we are very pleased to offer our hospitality concept in Waiblingen.” In this region, the ACHAT Group already has hotels at Stuttgart Fasanenhof and Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.
