Viru Keskus is one of Estonia's leading shopping centres located in the city centre of Tallinn and is currently undergoing the process of renewal. We are about to launch a contest for the interior design concept of the shopping centre that should keep the centre going for the next coming 10 years. The winning entry is expected to act as a basis for further design, which will be implemented most probably 2021-2024. 

There are altogether 109 different shops on the 26 800m2 rental area of Shopping Centre; Viru Centre is the market leader among the shopping centres in Estonia with approximately 16 million visitors per annum, and the most efficient shopping centre in the Baltic States and Nordic Countries.
