In 2013, after completing the Ħal Sagħtrija project, J. Portelli embarked on another ambitious project – The Forum Residences. The Forum is a prestigious lifestyle development based in Swieqi that incorporates 102 apartments, 8 penthouses, 12 terraced houses, 13 semi-detached villas, and a commercial premises which includes over 6,000m2 of office space and a supermarket.
Residents of The Forum enjoy all the perks of living at one of Malta’s most recognisable and prestigious address within walking distance of St Julian’s, one the island’s foremost business and entertainment hubs. In the immediate vicinity of The Forum, you will find an excellent selection of restaurants, shops, schools, sports facilities, gyms, spas, hotels, marinas and entertainment venues.
At a cost topping €34 million, this was the biggest investment the developer had ever undertaken, one which paid off immediately as 100% of the properties were sold on plan, with several of the units being resold multiple times afterwards always at a profit.
With an investment of €20 million in 2009, Ħal Sagħtrija is more than just a property, it is an innovation and exclusive development that offers a unique living experience which cannot be found anywhere else on the Malta island.
Situated in Żebbuġ, in the northern part of Gozo, Ħal Sagħtrija enjoys open sea and country views thanks to its prominent location atop a plateau known as Ta’ Abram. Every apartment in the complex overlooks the surrounding hillside and rural landscape, and enjoys dramatic views of the piercing blue skies and vibrant sunsets over the horizon.
The property incorporates features such as: picnic areas, a wood oven, chicken coops, kids’ areas, a private chapel, pool and Jacuzzi, and wine cellars. Everyday at dusk the traditional oil lamps are lit by a lamplighter. Residents can enjoy the fresh produce from the fields that are part of this property.
Villaġġ San Ġużepp was one of the earliest land acquisition and development projects completed by J. Portelli Projects. The village of Qala is situated in the easternmost tip of the island of Gozo and from its coastline one can admire views of Comino and Malta.
Qala, meaning ‘port’, drives its name from the nearby landing stage of Ħondoq ir-Rummien, which is now a well-known bathing zone. The Qala Belvedere is another prominent feature in the village that offers panoramic sea views.
With the exception of a few sheltered inlets and small bays, such as Ħondoq ir-Rummien, Qala’s coastline is rough and rocky with several caves hewn by nature over the ages, the most striking of which is Għar Minka, which can be accessed by boat.
