Opened in 2012, Greenland’s first mall has everything a shopping center needs: a supermarket, multiple clothes shops, a few restaurants and a café. The surprise lies not in the mall itself, but it the tower above it.
The nine-story tower is home to Greenland’s government. Even though Greenland is still under the Danish realm, and therefore is not entirely independent when it comes to defense or foreign policy, the country has its own government for some matters, for example fisheries and hunting, housing, and mineral resources.
All of the different Ministries are located here, with the highest floor being, of course, dedicated to the Premier’s office.
