Tigne’ Point could be getting a new 16-storey tower after MIDI unveiled plans for the new project, which is expected to face a decision by the end of 2019.
According to plans, the high-rise residential block will be built within the Garden Battery, a British-era fort. The fort itself will now form part of public area and will include a pedestrian link to the promenade. The full details are as of yet unavailable on the PA’s website.
A planning application has been submitted, with a decision expected by the end of this year.
Mark Portelli, CEO of MIDI plc, said: “LOM has designed a striking and high-quality scheme that responds to its historic, seafront location. This is the final phase of the Tigné Point development, transforming the former brownfield site with new homes, commercial space and public amenities.
In a planning hearing over MIDI’s revised plans for Manoel Island, it was revealed that the developer could be able to use 8,000 square metres it removed on other developments.
It remains to be seen whether the 8,000 square metres will be applied to the Tigne’ Point development.
