A new multi-purpose hub business centre was given planning permission by the Planning Board today.

The business centre will replace the ex-Malta Dairy Milk processing plant in the industrial estate of Xewkija.

While the old processing plant will be demolished, the administrative block of the old plant which is a protected Modernist building, will be restored and used to house offices, conference rooms and ancillary facilities.

The building is a 1950s modernist building designed by the renowned Maltese architect Joseph George Huntingford. The building is characterised by a streamline design, devoid of any ornamentation, using cantilevered canopies and window hoods in concrete.
