Third Floor Apartment in Mercury Tower
Located in the heart of Paceville, the centre of Malta’s lifestyle and party zone, Mercury Tower and Mercury Suites are the accommodation portions of this sprawling development, which also has multiple indoor and outdoor swimming pools; an underground spa; an open-air running track; a shopping complex with a luxury department store; indoor and outdoor dining options; a concert hall; an underground amusement park with a Go-Karting track, axe throwing, arcade games and more; and a rooftop bar from which you can see all of Malta spread out below.
Mercury Towers is one of the last structures designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid before her passing in 2016.
Zaha Hadid is one of the most famous architects of this generation. As the first woman to win the prestigious Pritzker Prize for architecture, she trampled barriers and broke glass ceilings throughout her career. Her signature style of curving, fluid lines and mixing concrete with glass belonged to no school of architecture except her own; her former professor (and famous architect) Rem Koolhaas described her as "a planet in her own orbit". To own a property designed by Dame Hadid is to own a piece of modern history.
Only a handful of apartments remain available in Mercury Suites and Mercury Tower. Mercury Tower is due to complete construction at the end of 2021. Mercury Suites will follow soon after, with completion anticipated at the end of 2022.
Mercury Tower soars to 33 floors, with a twist partway up that epitomises Dame Hadid's love of curving lines.
Apartment 306 on the third floor of Mercury Tower has a squarish layout with a glass terrace that runs almost the length of the apartment.
Each apartment comes with a glass terrace, plus access to the rooftop gardens, a selection of swimming pools, an open-air running track, 24-hour concierge service, on-site security and a calendar of events.
Optional extras include access to the fitness centre, valet parking and childcare services.
An underground spa, built in a post-World War II telecommunications hub, is also available to residents.
Also underground is a soundproofed entertainment centre with a Go-Kart track, arcade games, axe throwing, an auditorium for live music and an indoor ice-skating rink.
And at the other end of the spectrum and rising 33 floors above ground is the rooftop Radio Bar, with panoramic views of the island and the Mediterranean Sea, expert mixologists, an illuminated pool, a glass viewing platform and the ritziest cocktail experience on the island.
Tucked inside the complex is a variety of high-end shopping and dining options.
All the apartments within Mercury Tower include an option to be managed by five-star ME by Belia, a hotel brand of Melia Hotels International.

St Julian's is a major residential and tourist centre and is home to some of Malta's newest hotels. It is now an extension of Sliema, although it started life as a small fishing port based on Spinola and Balluta Bays. At the north end, St Julian's merges with Paceville, Malta's main nightlife centre where there are clubs, casinos and numerous restaurants, cafés and bars. Picturesque Spinola Bay is still used by fishermen, whose traditional boats are housed just below the restaurants. The bay is particularly attractive at night and as a venue for open-air dining.
St Julian’s is also considered the water polo capital of Malta. Numerous schools are based in this town, including the Sacred Heart Foundations (Primary and Senior School for girls) and EF Language schools.
At the base of Paceville, one of Malta’s rare sandy beaches can be found.
The St Julian’s feast, held annually, includes a unique sporting competition known as ‘ġostra’. The game is played as part of only a select few local festas across Malta, and St Julian’s is one of them. The traditional game involves participants clambering as far as possible along a sloping greased pole that is suspended above the sea in order to get to one of three flags dangled from the edge, each representing a certain prize.
Homes in this popular location are frequently priced higher than many other towns in Malta.
