Nuuk Center

Office and retail store centre

Greenland's largest building is an office and retail store centre on Store Slette in Nuuk. The 10 storey centre covers 25,000 m², comprising a 12,000 m² shopping mall on two floors, a 6,000 m² basement and an eight storey office tower of around 7,000 m².

Logistic challenge

As part of the project, 5,000 tons of concrete elements, 1,000 tons of steel plus other materials were to be transported to Greenland by ship. The materials were stored at the construction site and in other places in the city until they were needed.

Distinctive office tower

The office tower of Nuuk Center makes the building one of the most notable in Nuuk, with its sloping lines and matt white facades which symbolise snow, icebergs and the water surface of the Nuuk fjord.

The building is made of concrete and steel, with facades of aluminium panels and glass. The office section has been sold to the administration of Greenland's autonomous government, and the largest player in the shopping centre will be Pisiffik, which is Dagrofa's subsidiary in Greenland.
