Allas Sea Pool Spa, a Helsinki-based spa that opened this past summer, is set to close its equity crowdfunding campaign on Invesdor with more than €1.1 million in funding. The initiative has been super popular and has attracted nearly 750 investors.
According to its creators, the Allas Sea Pool is considered an updated version of the old historical sea spa culture in Helsinki; a social experience combined with wellness and events. They also noted that for the citizens in Helsinki, it is a welcomed opportunity to enjoy the closeness of the sea while strengthening the city’s reputation as a spa profiled destination within the travel industry. The spa’s concept started to materialize in early 2013 and construction permits were finally issued in September 2015. Construction work was set to officially start this month and the spa’s nine meter’s tall main building, which will be made out of Finnish pine and consists of a terrace, cafeteria, restaurant, ticket office, and shop, is scheduled to be ready in May 2017.
The creators also noted:
“In other parts of Allas the construction work is already finished. The lawn, the beaches, all the plumbing and electric work have all been done. The side building with its showrooms, exercise areas and roof terrace, as well as the sauna building and the floating platform with the pools are already in use. The pool platform has been built using several novel in-house innovations to improve safety, energy efficiency, pool technology, water purification and winter durability. New cleantech solutions are also to be expected in the future.”
The spa will have the following once construction is finished:
- Floating swimming pools with heated water from the public water supply as well as filtered sea water
- Warm and cold pools open all year round
- Sauna and sea view bathing in the city center
- Latest cleantech energy, heating, and water handling solutions
- Baltic sea –center exhibiting the Baltic sea as well as a winter garden
- In wintertime, possibilities for sledge riding and other winter activities
- Cultural events and festivals
- Instructed sports: swimming classes, water gymnastics, gymnastics, watertryout, yoga and pilates
- Restaurants with gardens and sea view
The Allas Sea Pool will be located in the heart of Helsinki.
