PA approves new business centre in Xewkija industrial area

Thursday, 5 October 2017, 17:54 Last update: about 6 years ago

A new multi-purpose hub business centre in Xewkija received planning permission by the Planning Board on Thursday.

The business centre will replace the ex-Malta Diary Milk Processing Plant in the industrial estate of Xewkija. While the old processing plant will be demolished, the administrative block of the old plant which is a protected Modernist building, will be restored and used to house offices, conference rooms and ancillary facilities. A 60 space car park will be constructed underneath the business centre.

The Administration Building of the former milk factory which is to be restored is a 1950's modernist building designed by the renowned Maltese architect Joseph George Huntingford. The building is characterised by a streamline design, devoid of any ornamentation, using cantilevered canopies and window hoods in concrete.
