The Mercury Towers project, designed by the late Zaha Hadid, consists of the restored Grade II listed Mercury House, accompanied by a 33-floor residential tower – Malta’s tallest to date – and the five-star ME Malta Hotel by Meliá. A commercial mall and an accompanying car park were opened in 2023, and an entertainment area was also opened earlier this year.
