At the start of November 2016, Borussia began work on the new “Borussia-8-Grad” building at BORUSSIA-PARK. 31 million Euros have been invested into the project. The construction involves a hotel with 131 rooms, the new club museum, a big fanshop, doctor’s surgeries, and a rehabilitation centre, as well as office spaces. The building stands between the stadium and the FohlenPlatz, and is connected to the stadium’s foyer. Gladbach are also building a boarding school for the youth teams at the same time, as well as areas for both players and the media within the stadium. Borussia estimate the project to be finished by spring 2019.
Borussia hotel to be run by H-Hotels-AG
The building work has been carried out by Köster GmbH in Osnabrück. The office of SOP Architekten, located in Düsseldorf, was responsible for the project’s planning, while the architectural work was undertaken by Geplan Design. The Borussia hotel is run by H-Hotels-AG, located in Bad Arolsen. “Fans’ interest in Borussia has steadily grown over the past few years. With this new building, we want to offer a bigger slice of Borussia to fans than ever before. On the other hand, we’re making additional infrastructural changes,” said President Rolf Königs.
