Sliema, Fort Cambridge


Welcome to Fort Cambridge: an innovation in luxury developments in Malta

Designed to encapsulate Mediterranean tranquillity, the Fort Cambridge Luxury Development in Malta is a breakthrough in modern living combining contemporary extravagant lifestyle with history. Situated on the site of a historic fort in Malta, these seafront homes offer residents a choice of apartments, duplexes and penthouses with spectacular sea views. It is a safe, serene environment and within close proximity to high street shops and restaurants.

To experience the best coastal lifestyle without sacrificing the comforts of urban living, consider this development that combines the best of everything. Nestled in the urban hub that is Sliema on the island of Malta, Fort Cambridge offers an environment away from the noise and congestion of heavy traffic. Situated on the peaceful Tigné Peninsula, Fort Cambridge is surrounded by the sea nearly on all sides but finds itself just two minutes away from the cosmopolitan buzz of Sliema.

Fort Cambridge is the solution you’ve been waiting for. Unlike most apartments that lack light and space, making residents feel cramped, the designers and architects of Fort Cambridge have addressed every requirement. The apartments stand independently, allowing for windows all around, providing ample light and space. Developed by Gap Developments Plc and designed by TBA Periti, these exclusive homes are the epitome of luxury and comfort. Wide terraces and balconies, as well as spacious rooms typify the importance given to light and space in each.

Sliema is the ideal location for those seeking the convenience of having all services at their fingertips. Think of popular cafes, shops and restaurants being within walking distance; imagine stepping out for a coffee without the need to drive! Plus, the seaside promenade is right at your doorstep and a quick swim in the Mediterranean is just a road-crossing away. Whether it’s winter sunshine or summer breezes you are after, Fort Cambridge is perfection as it is conveniently located, unique, luxurious and exclusive.

The development offers a choice of orientations, allowing residents to enjoy views of the open sea, the surrounding area or the picturesque capital of Valletta across the water. Attention has been paid to both the aesthetics of the exteriors and the comfort and style of the interiors. The old fort at the base of the apartment blocks has undergone professional restoration and is surrounded by landscaped gardens. Because it is situated on the historic site of the original and historic Cambridge Battery, over 80% of the development is dedicated to landscaped, open spaces that incorporate the original battery building and its features. No commercial retail outlets form part of the residential area of the development, preserving the peaceful environment and guaranteeing the privacy of residents. Special emphasis was made on the use of open spaces with only 17% of the whole site being occupied by the apartments: the rest will be occupied by restored historical buildings and landscaped areas.

Fort Cambridge boasts various amenities, including a private swimming pool, beaches within a minute’s walk, shops, cafes, restaurants, a fitness centre and even an indoor pool. Full security ensures a safe living environment. Recognising the importance of having accessible parking, Fort Cambridge provides four levels of concealed garaging, accommodating approximately 900 cars for around 350 apartments.

Green Measures

A number of green measures have been taken, such as the insulation of all of the block’s facade, a water-cooled VRF system, the use of second class water and a trickle ventilation system. Because of the prominence of the development, as much attention has been paid to the aesthetics of the exterior as to the comfort and style of the interior.


Fort Cambridge enjoys Special Designated Area status, meaning that foreign investors, whether they are EU or Non-EU, can purchase as many units as they want without the need for an AIP (Acquisition of Immovable Property) permit. Due to this special status, the units can also be rented out immediately without any restrictions.

Foreign Buyers

Malta has become a prime location for foreign businesses, property investment and holidays and even as a retirement destination. Property investment in Malta offers the opportunity to benefit from the numerous residency conditions as well as the tax benefits available in Malta. There are no property rates or property taxes in Malta and profit on the sale of one’s residence is not subject to capital gains tax provided the property is sold after three years of ownership. In terms of death or succession duty, there is a 5% stamp duty payable on transmission of the property.
