Mercury Towers, the long-awaited lifestyle destination, prepares to open its doors for shopping, dining and entertainment. September 2023 marks the first phase within a six-month launch period for the landmark location.
Positioned in the heart of St Julians and designed by one of the world’s most prolific architects of her time, the late Zaha Hadid, Mercury Towers has served as a catalyst for widespread regeneration in the Paceville area.
With ongoing improvements being made to the urban fabric, and the introduction of inclusive, family-orientated amenities, the area is witnessing a gradual transformation, making it more welcoming for both residents and visitors.
Mercury Towers – re-inventing the retail landscape
During its inaugural phase, commencing in 2023, Mercury Towers will re-invent Malta’s retail landscape through a curated mix of over 80 multi-category lifestyle brands, setting a new benchmark in choice for the local consumer. The culinary scene at Mercury Towers will be equally disruptive, with a portfolio of diverse food and beverage concepts.
Renowned international franchises and local artisan delights will help reinforce Malta’s position as a premium foodie destination for the global traveler. Offering an experience that cannot be found anywhere else on the island, this curated mix responds to a growing appetite for delectable food and innovative experiential dining.
To complement the shopping and dining offering, Mercury Towers will also introduce cutting-edge entertainment, appealing to the entire family. From adrenaline-fueled activities to fully immersive, technology-driven performances, visitors will be transported to another planet, where play is the order of day.
Details regarding the impressive lineup of brands and concepts available at Mercury Towers will be revealed in the upcoming weeks. Once fully operational in Q1 of 2024, Mercury Towers will evolve into a vibrant new quarter encompassing accommodation, shopping, dining, entertainment, residential and wellness facilities, setting new standards for local industry.
At Mercury Towers’ core, lies the meticulously restored Grade II listed Mercury House which stands proud once again. It is accompanied by a 33-floor residential tower – Malta’s tallest to date – and the luxe five-star ME Malta Hotel by Meliá. As the first lifestyle franchise of its kind locally, ME Malta is housed within a second 20-floor building that flanks a public square. It follows the recent opening of ME Dubai, an iconic architectural wonder also designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.
Anchored in art, design, innovation, and community-led activity, Mercury Towers aspires to become a new cultural hub, curating lifestyle experiences which serve to inspire thought, and a sense of place. With 4,000 square meters of open public spaces, Mercury Towers has repurposed a once-gated space for public use, while paying homage to the futuristic flair of starchitect Zaha Hadid, whose work is characterized by the ever-present curve.
