NCC to start construction of Papirøen

NCC has received planning permission and can now begin the complex large-scale construction of Papirøen together with the development company CØ P/S. The order was first communicated in 2019 and the project is expected to be completed in 2024.

Christiansholm on Papirøen island is the last dock area that remains undeveloped in the inner harbor of Copenhagen. For many years, this was where the Procurement Association of the Danish Press had its storage facility for newsprint. The area is now being given new life through a unique project that covers the entire island and comprises tenant-owner apartments, rental apartments, a hotel and a market hall that will house stores, cafés and restaurants.

“This is a project with many diverse elements and details that must be implemented at the same time, with limited space for construction activity and narrow access conditions in the middle of the city. We draw on our entire experience and expertise within planning, logistics and construction competence, and we look forward to a constructive collaboration with the client, consultants and architect," says Palle Bjerre Rasmussen, Head of NCC Building Nordics in Denmark.

The companies behind the CØ P/S development company are Danica Ejendomsselskab (50%), Unionkul Ejendomme (37.5%) and Nordkranen (12.5%). Partners in the project are in addition to the architectural firm COBE, consulting engineers MOE and landscape architect Inside Outside.

The order was announced in 2019 with an order value of DKK 1.2 billion (SEK 1.64 billion), which will be registered in the business area Building Nordics in connection with the construction start in Q4 2020.
