The board of Simonds Farsons Cisk plc has enthusiastically appreciated a visionary masterplan for the industrial heritage façade buildings and land that has been prepared by Ian Ritchie Architects with support from Maltese based engineers TBA Periti, as well as Doug King (sustainability), Brandi Licht (lighting), Butterfield Design (brand design), Kristen Lippincott (The Exhibitions Team) and Fourth Street (placemaking + destination development).  The project will create a new centre for Mriehel, and will include around 50,000m2 of commercial space with innovative workspace solutions for emerging and cultural business enterprises, new Grade A offices, together with complementary retail, leisure, cultural event spaces and social facilities, and the Brewery façade will be sensitively restored and pioneer the showcasing of Malta’s industrial heritage.

Louis Farrugia, Chairman, Simonds Farsons Cisk plc said: “We have been working on this vision to find new uses for our iconic buildings for many years and, although it is ambitious, we feel confident that the time is right for a quality development of this magnitude to happen, which will help transform the area and contribute to Malta’s economy by providing quality space which is aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sustainable.”

Ian Ritchie said:Farsons have acted as both pioneers and guardians of Malta’s heritage and their significant investment in the architectural and landscape thinking behind this ambitious project should certainly enhance Malta’s burgeoning reputation as a centre for international business.”
