Fort Cambridge gets its name from its location: the old fort that defended the Sliema peninsula from the beginning of the 19th century up until Malta ceased to be a British colony in 1964. Within the grounds of Fort Cambridge is the Cambridge Battery, a fort built in the shape of a pentagon in the second half of the 19th century. Once it stood surrounded by soldiers’ barracks and by the homes of British army officers, built in the Edwardian style in the early 1900s. Now it is a historical attraction, which is being carefully restored and will be surrounded by gardens open to the public. The battery once held one of the famous 100- tonne guns that defended Malta. The other gun is at Fort Rinella, which Fort Cambridge resembles closely in design. Both Fort Rinella and Fort Cambridge were built by the British as a reaction to the unification of Italy in 1871, and the upgrading of the Italian naval fleet.
The Fort Cambridge development is one of a few sought after projects being built in Malta. Located in the Tigne area of Sliema, this 341 apartment development was designed with convenience and security in mind. The architects maximised on space, provided the luxury of privacy and ensured that each unit would be oriented in one of three directions. One can choose to have an apartment with open sea views, views overlooking the town, or with the World heritage city of Valletta as a background. The development is also complimented with a communal private swimming pool as well as a fully equipped fitness centre with indoor pool.
There will be no commercial property located within the development however the owners of the one to three bedroom apartments will have the luxury of being within a five minute walking distance of the centre of Sliema, which is where the hustle and bustle of the main cafe's, restaurants and high street shopping is located.
