The future Mag©¤tab Park is located on a site with some of the greatest development opportunities in Malta. Some of the sites inherent characteristics includes its location on the northern coastline of Malta, the sites elevated position enabling views north to the Mediterranean and south to the remainder of the country and the sites central position between some of the most populated centres of Malta.

Suitably qualified participants will be able to submit designs, with the winning design concept being selected by a panel of judges composed of a number of local and international experts competent in various fields relevant to the project.

The competition has been launched on 31 July 2006, with registration beginning on 1 August 2006 and closing on 29 August 2006. The closing date for the reception competition submissions is 27 October 2006. The Registration Form can also be requested by fax on +356 2295 2231.
