"The implementation of a large and long-term international project is primarily connected For Arkhangelsk with the holding every two years of the International Arctic Forum. IAF-2017 showed that during large international events in the city there are not enough comfortable hotel rooms. The arrival of the international hotel business participant to the regional market will help to remove the severity of the issue, "commented the director general of the Arkhangelsk Regional Development Corporation Aleksey Kovalev.

According to preliminary estimates, the investment will amount up to half a billion rubles. In the future, the hotel is expected to have a minimum of 130 rooms, a restaurant, a bar, meeting rooms and a conference room, a gym, parking, and the necessary amenities and facilities.
"I'm not afraid to invest in Pomorie, I want to do it and I’m doing it," Ildar Neverov, the founder of Promsnab LLC, said after signing the document. - Now I work in the field of environmental protection and ecology, but the sphere of leisure and hotel business is no less interesting to me as an investor. I believe that the sphere of leisure in the Arkhangelsk region is underestimated. I place great hopes on the Arkhangelsk Regional Development Corporation. I think that the Corporation experts will help me competently "pack" the project and attract extra funding. I'm sure that we are on the beam. Thank you all very much for your trust! ".
