Skyscraper land? St. Julian’s to welcome another 33-storey tower after ERA approves proposal

Feb 19 2022 Share

The bustling entertainment hub of St. Julian’s will welcome another 33-storey tower after the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) green-lighted a proposal.

The project, led by PX Lettings’ Paul Xuereb and architect Christian Spiteri, will match Joseph Portelli’s neighbouring Mercury Tower project, which is also currently in development. Times of Malta have also highlighted that such an approval cleared a ‘significant regulatory hurdle’.

The tower, which will include office space, residential areas, restaurants and parking facilities, was approved after the ERA’s consideration of an Environmental Impact Assessment and comments from the public during a stipulated 30-day consultation period.

As the busy commercial hub continues to welcome high-rise developments, could we be witnessing the future of St. Julian’s in motion? 🏙

Amongst other unfortunate casualties, three people in the Netherlands were killed by toppling trees whilst a woman was killed in London when a tree collapsed onto her car. Venues such as London’s O2 arena also registered significant damages after the wind shredded its domed roof. Together with similar establishments such as Printworks London, performers scheduled for shows at the O2 had to postpone to ensure the safety of their fans and clients.
