Opening water­fronts for urban life

Nordic Urban develops and operates floating well-being hubs by the waters of great cities.

Our well-being concept

Floating Allas hubs are sustainable well-being complexes that improve urban livability for people of all ages and backgrounds, all year round. Each hub’s service offering is curated and localized to meet place-specific needs.

Swimming and bathing

Always open natural water pools and heated outdoor pools, complete with relaxing saunas.

Wellness and fitness

Mind and body-enhancing low-intensity training and exercise opportunities in and outside the pools.

Food and beverages

Café and restaurant services for healthy lifestyles and unforgettable waterfront experiences.


Ever-evolving cultural programming for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Community building

Community-oriented activities and membership societies for bringing people together and nurturing growth.


Flexible event spaces and conference rooms for community and corporate events in inspiring settings.

Reclaiming the waterfronts

We are seeking to engage with cities, communities, and corporate partners to discuss the potentials of developing new floating hubs on urban waterfronts in a public-private-people partnership.

Our floating hubs

Nordic Urban’s network of Allas hubs is transforming urban waterfronts across the globe into destinations for locals and visitors. We have several ongoing negotiations for developing new floating facilities in the centers of large cities.
