Fortress Gardens building frame is now complete

Set on the historic coastal site of Malta’s Tigné Point peninsula, the building frame of LOM’s residential and public realm project, Fortress Gardens, is now complete and with early commercial success with a number of apartments already sold.

The 63 luxury residences boast abundant natural light made possible in the Mediterranean climate, through carefully conceived stepped façade formed of generous balconies that provide solar shading whilst also affording panoramic vistas of Valletta and the Mediterranean Sea. The bright and airy interiors have been designed with a sleek neutral palette and offer mixed mode, air conditioning or natural ventilation, that supports a sustainable yet luxury environment.

Five stunning penthouse apartments have been designed by stepping the roof line to allow each to take in the view of the City of Valletta the UNESCO World Heritage site.

“The 63 apartments are designed to make the most of the amazing views over the Mediterranean Sea and across to Valletta. The public plaza and the carefully planned landscaping around the Garden Battery will create a new public quarter at Tigné Point for people to relax and socialise.”

Richard Hutchinson, Director, LOM architecture and design

The scheme, which sensitively responds both to its historic seafront location and the local community, is set to transform the residential and public amenities in the area. LOM has designed 7,000sqm of landscaped public space within the recently restored historic gun batteries, conceived to optimise wellbeing for residents and the wider public.

Fortress Gardens will be the final block within the prestigious 110,000sqm Tigné Point development, launched by MIDI plc nearly quarter of a century ago and is due for completion in 2025.
