New Aarhus tower to boost tourism

Bay Centre become Denmark’s tallest building
A new building in Aarhus, which at 128 metres will be the tallest in Denmark, looks set to boost tourism to the increasingly popular east-coast city.
Expected to be finished in 2020, Bugtcenteret (Bay Centre) will knock Copenhagen’s 120-metre Herlev Hospital into second place.
Located in the Aarhus Ø harbour development area, it will house an observation platform, an open area for exhibitions, tourist information, apartments and facilities linked to open-water swimming lanes.
Aarhus Municipality has accepted a proposal by real estate firm Anpartsselskabet Lighthouse United for the development of the site.
“We are going to get a distinctive and attractive development at one of the country’s most attractive locations, a landmark for a modern city with high ambition,” Aarhus Mayor Jacob Bundsgaard told DR.
As previously reported, Aarhus will also soon get a new water park.
