The Grand Harbour Regeneration Corporation intends to restore two dilapidated buildings in Valletta, one to house homeless youth, and the other as independent living apartments for elderly persons.

The homeless youth accommodation would be located on Old Mint Street corner with St John's Street, in Valletta.

The site, over three floors, will have eight small apartments, each with two beds. The building will also see one additional floor constructed over and above the existing one. The accommodation will be run by the Foundation for Social Welfare Services, GHRC Chairman Gino Cauchi told The Malta Independent.
