The final addition
Tigné Point has been guided by people and place. Its human values, elegant aesthetic and nurtured community have attracted local and international buyers. Fortress Gardens is the final phase, completing a neighbourhood that prizes a way of living that effortlessly integrates leisure, work and well- being with a proven return on investment.
An Architect’s Vision
The apartments are designed to make most of the amazing views over the Mediterranean Sea and across to the UNESCO World Heritage city of 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, socialise and appreciate the island’s military heritage.”

A Sense of history
In a land with a long and storied history, each era has left its mark. As the final chapter, Tigné Point has respected the past by preserving each of the historic sites including Fort Tigné, St Luke’s Garrison Chapel, the Clock Tower and the Garden Battery – the unique centrepiece.
The ambitious restoration and conservation of this once formidable British defensive battery breathed new life into a site which played a pivotal role in the islands’ history. Rejuvenating original materials and preserving the original layout, MIDI plc’s meticulous approach delivered a new destination for the whole community as the Garden Battery was integrated into Malta’s heritage trail.
The outstanding results were officially recognised with a prestigious Architectural Heritage Award for outstanding contribution to Maltese cultural heritage and architectural excellence awarded by Malta’s foremost heritage NGO, Din L-Art Helwa. Today, the fully restored Garden Battery is an integral part of a cohesive whole, offering residents and visitors alike the opportunity to enjoy their place in a continual history.
A Proven Track Record
MIDI plc origins lie in the Government of Malta’s international call for the redevelopment of two prime brownfield sites of 44 hectares on Malta’s north-east coast – Tigné Point and Manoel Island. Established in 1992, the consortium, submitted a proposal and in 1999 became a public limited company that acquired the land.
Spearheading the exciting revitalisation of these two former military bases at a cost of €600 million, MIDI is leading the most high-profile and ambitious property regeneration project in the island’s history. The shareholding of the company reflects the scope and scale of the project with a number of Malta’s leading businesses and institutions.
Located in the island’s most desirable areas, with views across Marsamxetto harbour and within easy reach of the capital Valletta, all of the development’s residential units to date, have been sold.
