A Solution Against Lack of Housing
In Nuuk lack of housing is a well-known problem since many people from around the coast and abroad are moving to the bigger cities like Nuuk.
However, this problem is hopefully only temporary, as many new constructions are on its way, including 116 new apartments. The new constructions are family homes consisting of mainly 2-3 bedroom apartments spread over two 10-storey residential towers. The planned towers are some of the highest in Nuuk, which make the whole construction both exciting and innovative.
In addition to the large lack of housing in Nuuk, another problem is the lack of building sites. The landscape around Nuuk consist mainly of rocky hills, which result in a rough construction environment, which have to be blown away in order to use the landscape for building sites.
The 116 apartments are expected to be done in 2018 and 2020 respectively.
