Skistar intends to demolish the cable car in Åre and that the ground where the cable car's subway station is today in the future would become a center with hotels and housing. The summer of 2019 won a detailed plan for the area of legal force. The detailed plan gives, among other things, Skistar the right to demolish the cabin path and the restaurant building in the area. The detailed plan also opens to build the area with housing and hotels.
Parallel to the detailed plan was an ongoing building permit process. But now, Skistar has withdrawn this building permit application.
"It's a complex project that affects a lot of areas, so we want to look at it all again to find the absolute best solution," says Niclas Sjögren Berg, destination manager at Skistar Åre.
- We are looking with new eyes now and reviewing the design of buildings and parking, among other things, it is an area where there is movement all year round so it must be right from the start, he says.
He also says that the decision to demolish the cabin line is firm.
- The cabin will be demolished one beautiful day, when we do not know. Now we drive until May 3 and then we communicate whether it will be an extension or not.
