The Exchange at Pendergardens
Commercial property at Pendergardens is housed within The Exchange and will offer approximately 20,000m2 of state of the art office space in a unique, vibrant and central location. Finished to the highest standards, the area is easily accessible, centrally located within the island. The Exchange is complemented by a further 9,000 square metres of commercial and retail outlets surrounding a large Piazza and several other open or covered spaces each having their own distinct atmospheres.
The Exchange at Pendergardens will make a distinguished addition to the architecture of St. Julian’s. The towers are a confident statement that will project the aspirations of its occupants. The commercial area is expected to become a ‘who’s who’ of local and internationally leased business ventures. The mix of office, retail, food and beverage outlets is designed to make The Exchange a vibrant location for some 18 hours a day with its piazza serving as a town centre where none existed before., thus helping generate additional economic activity in the area particularly during daytime. It will also serve as a much needed town centre for the St. Julians – Swieqi area.
The restored façade of Mercury House will give the feel of times gone by, and serve as a reminder of the pioneering communications technology once housed there. Today it will be the proud entrance to a modern Financial Centre supported by the latest communication technologies. Many have already taken advantage of this, including FIMBank, taking a considerable area of the office space available. However, excluding FIMBank, The Exchange offers an additional 16,700 square metres of state-of-the-art office space in two towers (one of 18 floors and one of 19 floors) and 10,800 square metres of managed, mixed, retail and leisure outlets fronting a large public piazza. With direct vertical access to the offices and shops above, a total of 448 car park spaces will be available in the underground parking levels. As a cluster concept, The Exchange will not only be targeting purely financial firms as tenants but will also attract those firms all engaged unrelated activities to generate a greater value and value-added.
Leasing office space at the Exchange will provide:
Parking at The Exchange
While the two sites of Pendergardens have their own distinct characteristics (one wholly commercial and the other primarily residential), the two sites remain part of an integrated whole. That part of the public car parking required to support The Exchange will be located beneath Phase Two of Pendergardens, at levels -3 and -4 and will be linked to the The Exchange site via a pedestrian and vehicular tunnel beneath St Andrews Road.
