An iconic landmark property that redefines luxury and contemporary urban living right in the heart of Malta’s premiere entertainment district. A game-changer in its own right. This unique development, the first of its kind on the island, is set to raise the bar and set the tone in which future developments and high-end lifestyle living is to take place.
The Mercury Towers Complex is one of J. Portelli Project’s latest projects. This proposed development is designed by internationally renowned architectural firm Zaha Hadid Architects and is one of the final projects signed off by Zaha Hadid herself, only a few days before her untimely passing. The finished complex will include a mix of historical and ultra-modern edifices on its site. At its heart is a 19th-century heritage building, which will be flanked by a 31-storey residential tower with a boutique hotel situated in its podium, and a medium-rise building that will house a shopping mall and offices. The buildings will be located around several open and landscaped piazzas, which will occupy approximately half of the total floor area. Moreover, the entire complex will sit on a five-storey underground public car park with over 600 parking spaces. This project will be the first of its kind locally and will require the implementation of highly specialised techniques and equipment, such as fast lifts for high-rise vertical distribution, which aren’t currently available in Malta. Ultimately, this development will provide an opportunity for local construction professionals to expand their training and skills into new areas, as well as serve as a case study for future architects and civil engineers studying high-rises in Malta.
