The Portomaso Business Tower (the Tower) is the tallest building in Malta. The Tower stands in the Portomaso section of St. Julian's, a town just north of Malta's capital city, Valletta. Opened in 2001, the Tower is 98 metres (322 ft) tall, with 23 floors of mixed commercial office space.[1]

The first six floors of the Tower have 465 square metres (5,010 sq ft) of floor space, while the remaining floors have 295 m2 (3,180 sq ft) each. The main floor is occupied by a shopping centre while the top floor of the building is a nightclub with balconies affording views of the island nation.[2]

The tower is located close to Paceville, and it overlooks the Portomaso Marina. The surrounding area has many hotels, apartments, bars and restaurants, shops and a tree-lined promenade.[3]

The Portomaso Casino is located in the Tower, and was the venue for the 2012 and 2013 Battle of Malta Poker Tournament.
