The Shoreline project solidly on track

Site excavation works for The Shoreline Residence’s multi-purpose project at Ricasoli, in the vicinity of SmartCity Malta, have commenced. The competitive tender for the complete excavation of the site has been awarded to Polidano Group, a long established and experienced Maltese firm well equipped to handle this large-scale assignment. 

During March this year, The Shoreline received the definitive approval of its development application by the Planning Authority (PA) regarding its upmarket and distinctive landmark project on the east coast of Malta. Excavation works are expected to be completed by end October 2019. This will be followed by the engagement of the main construction contractor.  

Home to approximately 370luxury apartments, The Shoreline will comprise a 2-storey, double-height shopping mall covering 25,500 square meters, with ample space for underground parking, overlooking the Smart City Laguna, recreation areas and other amenities, making it one of the larger private construction project in Malta to date. The Shoreline aims to offer its residential clients affordable luxury in a secure, car-free and clean environment close to all that matters, as well as the added value of exciting investment and retail options so lacking in the South. 

“Our vision is to create a great place to establish roots, raise a family, and appreciate the great views – in one phrase: to enjoy the superb location close to all that matters. When one considers all tangible and intangible aspects of these properties, one realises that The Shoreline  is truly offering affordable luxury in a safe, car-free and unpolluted environment,” said Andrew Gatt, Sales and Marketing Manager

At this stage on site heavy equipment, including a  special cutting machine, is being utilized. This phase is divided into two parts: preparatory work for excavations to be followed by direct digging for construction purposes. The earmarked site will be excavated down to five levels to accommodate one double-height retail area, and three levels of garage spaces for over 1,000 cars. 

As a responsible enterprise, The Shoreline has further announced that it appointed En-Sure ( as environmental site monitors. “We recognize the importance of environmental responsibility, which includes on-going environmental monitoring according to a comprehensive suite of parameters that comprise air quality, noise and vibration, among others. The good news is that some 90% of the 230,000 cubic meters of rock to be excavated will be used again as recycled material,” said Ben Muscat, Chairman of The Shoreline Residence Ltd. 

En-sure carries out such site monitoring in accordance with international standards, using sampling protocols in accordance with approved method statements.
