SmartCity Malta, Kalkara

(3.4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
SmartCity is a technology park under development in Kalkara, Malta. The plan is to transform the Ricasoli Industrial Estate into an information technology and media city on the models of Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City. The project was unveiled on 10 September 2007 by then Prime Minister of Malta, Lawrence Gonzi. The project will cost at least €275 million. The whole development, which covers an area of 360,000 square metres, is to be fully completed in 2021, although the first offices opened in 2010.Outline planningOn 23 April 2008 it was announced that the decision by SmartCity Malta to allocate more space for its business park meant that this park would employ more than 8,500 people, when the agreed figure for employment there had been 3,000. Smart City Malta, would have the space to employ 11,000, making it one of the biggest economic concentrations in Malta.SmartCity Malta formally submitted its outline planning application for the development at Ricasoli to the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (Mepa) on 29 April 2008. The submission includes a full Environmental Impact Assessment and Traffic Impact Assessment. SmartCity Malta has applied for up to 158,500 square metres of business space, which represents an increase of 54 per cent over the business space which Smart City Malta is contractually bound to develop. On the other hand, the gross floor area of the residential component has been reduced by 30 per cent, down to 60,000 square metres. In terms of the Outline Planning Application, the residential component makes up 19 per cent of the total gross floor area of the project.

  • A nice building that is still under construction and is home to a university, companies and a few restaurants.  more »
  • Beautiful musical fountain and water games. Otherwise a open air yard. Complex owned by the United Arab Emirates, I recommend going to see the fountain and its games, but otherwise nothing afterward

  • Nice stop if you're on a tour. Nice views and maybe lunch. Not a destination in itself. Basically a mini industrial park in the making. Pretty fountain.  more »

  • Good spot for a Sunday lunch with the family. Parking good and easy. Pity there is nothing to do except a walk around the lagoon. It would be great if there are kids facilities/play area.
  • There's open sea with beautiful landscaping, water of fountain dances to rhythm of music and fountain lights up in the evening
  • Great place needs more variety of places and venues. The view is amazing more outlets would make the place justice.
  • Went here with my girlfriend to meet some friends for a coffee & cake. Such a beautiful setting at night with the fountains & lights. We walked around the fountain afterwards & it was such a pleasant experience.
  • New business park, we visited for the Malta airshow flying display. Facilities great and building work indicates more to come. Bus service a bit infrequent.
