While it's still very much a work in progress, I wanted to share a quick update on Valletta's new city gate. Behold: The scaffolding is finally retreating! Approaching the city you are now greeted with a beautiful, streamlined vista that encourages the eye to travel right down Republic Street. It is quite impressive, especially at night.
Although anticipated to be finished long ago, the parliament buildings are still under construction (politics) but the open-air theatre is fully functioning and quite lovely.
I can't wait for the project to come together and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that, even though Malta's 'new' bus service is leaving the country, the bus terminal will still be transformed into an open green space as Renzo Piano planned.
The New Valletta is really taking shape.
I, for one, like what I see.
