Works have progressed at Mercury Towers as the construction of the whole project has now been concluded.

Visible progress can be seen externally. The GFRC cladding of the first phase of the project is in its final stages. Thus, allowing us to envision what Mercury Towers will look like in its final stage. The Pavilion structure adjacent to Mercury House is being tiled in mosaic. The mosaic is being hand-crafted by J Portelli Projects’ skilled workers. The Pavilion will form part of the commercial aspect of the project.

The team is now focused on the finishing stages of the project, from plastering and tiling to electrical and plumbing services.

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.

Over the past years, a wave of new construction has redefined Malta’s skyline. New luxury apartments continue to be the driving force behind the island’s vertical growth spurt, but some condominium, office, hotel, retail and educational projects are also in the mix.

Rising 125 meters to claim the title of Malta’s tallest building, The Mercury Tower is hard to ignore. Designed by starchitect Zaha Hadid and developed by J. Portelli Projects, the St. Julian’s Tower features a striking GFRC facade along all the floors and blown through the unoccupied twist floor levels, with a continuous linear colour changing light drift embedded within Zaha Hadid’s distinctive facade curves.

The Mercury Tower will deliver over 300 residences, 130 hotel rooms and residential suites when it opens in 2022.

Nadur - Quaint Boutique Hotels Featured in UK Press

In July 2016, Quaint Hotel Nadur, the first location of the chain to open its doors, made it to the Guardian’s best new affordable boutique hotels in Europe and was the only establishment in Malta to be included on the list. The Guardian’s review of Quaint Hotel Nadur highlighted its central location in the Gozitan village of Nadur, as well as its unique aesthetics featuring a 19th-century exterior that is complemented by a slick and contemporary interior.

Quaint Hotel Nadur was mentioned in the UK press a second time when it featured prominently on a list compiled by a The Telegraph’s destination expert of the top 10 boutique hotels around Malta and Gozo.

The list sought to give an insider’s guide to travellers looking to book a room at the best boutique hotels that Malta and Gozo have to offer. Quaint Hotel Nadur obtained a 7/10 rating and was highly praised for its ultra-modern, minimalist interior design, which lends the place an urban feel despite its village setting. Special mentions were also made of the “helpful and friendly” staff who run the hotel, as well as the family-friendly environment, and convenient proximity to Gozo’s best beaches and tourist attractions.
