The skyscraper that is Mercury Towers features iconic design elegance at its heart and it is the product of an extraordinary legacy. Located in the business and entertainment hub of St Julian’s, the mind behind this creation is none other than the world-class and internationally renowned architectural firm of Zaha Hadid Architects. The finished project is a perfect a mix of historical and contemporary architecture. At its heart is the historic, 19-century heritage building Mercury House, flanked by a 33-storey residential tower that incorporates a luxury 5-star hotel operated by Melia Hotels International.
Mercury Towers boast breathtaking 360 degree views of the island and is currently Malta’s tallest building. Its unique design delivers a twist on conventional architecture and it has become a national landmark, housing 262 state-of-the-art residences, where owners have the option of having their properties managed by Melia Hotels.
