Metropolis Malta announced the appointment of Advocate Jean Paul Sammut as Chief Operating Officer for the Metropolis Towers Project. Having successfully read for a Doctorate in Law at University of Malta, Dr Sammut has occupied several management positions with major companies in Malta. He is perhaps best known for his contribution at Polidano Group.
As Managing Partner and Founder of Sammut Advocates and Consultants, Dr Sammut has managed to lead the firm from a start-up to a prominent boutique law firm in Malta. Dr Sammut is involved with a number of stakeholders, and thus he is considered an influential member and consultant for a vast number of companies both locally and internationally. Being a lawyer by profession, he is also practising in the courts of Malta, in the criminal, commercial and civil fields.
The Metropolis Project was initiated earlier in March and is set to be an avant-garde mixed-use architectural project which will be an easily distinguished landmark with its prominent towers. Metropolis lauded the "exceptional property development" as a landmark in the heart of Gzira. The site selected for this development sits squarely between Malta’s more popular business districts, minutes away from Sliema & St. Julians, Ta’ Xbiex, and Valletta.
The site is also well connected to the main road network hub of this part of the island. Metropolis highlighted how thanks to its strategic location, "the project will provide residents and corporate employees some of the most spectacular views in Malta which includes Malta’s fortified capital, Valletta, the yacht marina at Ta’ Xbiex, the inlet known as Sliema ‘creek’ and the historically significant Manoel Island."
Speaking about this appointment, Dr Sammut said, ”I am excited to take on this role for one of the largest upcoming real estate projects in the country. As Metropolis Malta, we are eager to complete this project and provide the area with the economic boost it deserves. At the same time, we look forward to coordinating with all stakeholders, including residents, businessmen, local authorities, NGOs and more.”
During his tenure as COO, Dr Sammut will continue serving his previous responsibilities at Sammut Advocates and Consultants, whilst also practicing at the Courts of Malta.
