In Mölndal, just south of Gothenburg, the new city district GoCo Health Innovation City is emerging, focusing on R&D in health and life sciences. Initially there will be 100,000 square meters of commercial space. It is now official that Coor has been given the assignment of developing the food and beverage offering at GoCo House.
GoCo Health Innovation City is a billion-investment in new R&D and health innovation environments. The district will be further strengthened at the turn of the year, when GoCo House, the signature office building with 21,000 sqm of office space, large public areas and creative meeting settings, will help support collaborations and spontaneous conversations. A collaboration is now being initiated with Coor to complement and further develop the building by adding its own food and beverage concept.
- We're delighted to present Coor as the operator of the building’s food and beverage experience. We share the same high level of ambition when it comes to food, drink and service. The restaurant businesses in GoCo House will be an essential ingredient in creating a location that is both inclusive and vibrant, says Sofia Ekberg, project manager at GoCo Health Innovation City.
GoCo is making major investments in sustainability with the goal of being climate neutral by 2030. A goal that Coor also was able to meet in its ideas about the food experience and how to develop the food and beverage offering.
- We were truly impressed by Coor’s approach to our sustainability profile and our criteria for food and beverage, both in terms of experience and how the same can contribute to sustainable urban development in general, Sofia continues.
The entire ground floor of GoCo House will be a public area with a lounge, bar, restaurant and café where guests are invited to meet in a relaxed atmosphere.
- Getting the chance to further develop GoCo’s ambitions is both inspiring, honorable and gratifying. With the inspiring environments, many social areas and a modern, sustainable food and beverage concept, we want to create a place that feels similar to the home kitchen. A place for creativity, to gather energy, to socialize and of course to enjoy good food, says Linda Höglund, Coor Head of F&B Innovation and Concept.
GoCo Health Innovation City is a billion-investment initiated by Next Step Group, Vectura Fastigheter and AstraZeneca. The vision is to create a place for global leadership in Life Sciences where collaboration and new research environments help accelerate Swedish health innovation. The first tenants will move into GoCo House at the end of 2022. The restaurant concept will be launched in the fall and the first guests will be welcomed early next year.
