Midi proposed casino hotel in Malta

A casino hotel at Fort Manoel, an extensive shopping complex at the historic Lazaretto are among the proposals in Midi’s official development plans for Manoel Island.

However the plans were instantly attacked by Gżira mayor Conrad Borg Manche, who called the whole thing a “completely unacceptable” proposal that would create “another jumble of retail outlets and commercialised space”.

Beyond the mayor’s reaction, however, a lot of people made it a point to express their disapproval. These people come from all walks of life, from architects and other Maltese Local Councils, to members of the general public from both political parties.
