Mercury Towers presents a new, family-friendly neighbourhood in Paceville, rejuvenating this otherwise run-down suburb of St. Julian’s. Destined to become a vibrant new cultural hub, Mercury Towers’ main structure ascends to ten floors before twisting 12 degrees towards the Mediterranean.
Construction works on the second phase of the project are well underway, with visible progress being made to the hotel tower, suites, podium and mall. Cladding, third fixes and common areas are also progressing, with fully-functional elevators.
The Mercury Tower exterior works have progressed and the installation of the GFRC facade, glass balustrades and aluminium apertures are now in their advanced stages on the 125m high rise in St. Julian’s, Malta as construction continues on the 2nd phase of the project.
Addressed as The Mercury Towers, Triq San Gorg, Paceville, the soaring 33-storey skyscraper is designed by Zaha Hadid and developed by J. Portelli Projects and holds the crown as the tallest structure by roof height and the tallest residential building in Malta.
Mercury Tower’s residents will enter the building either through a dedicated residential lobby at Piazza Level or through a secondary, more discreet access point from the car park at level -2.
The highly anticipated homes come in one-to-two-bedroom layouts beginning high above the street level and range from 70sqm to over 150sqm. Resident-only services include in-home and in-club dining experiences, complemented by exclusive partnership offering beauty and spa services, clinical skin care, personal stylists for wardrobes in the home, and a variety of in-store perks, including advance access to new brands and collections, and priority access to invite-only events.
The Mercury Towers is expected to be completed sometime before the end of 2022.
