With a population a little above 30,000 and an area of only 6.5 sq km, new property developments in Gibraltar are viewed as a policy priority for the local government and are highly sought-after by investors. But residential accommodation is not the only type of property under development. Gibraltar’s robust economy and beneficial tax regime has attracted many businesses to domicile on the Rock, bringing with them teams o professional staff. Not only does this influx of personnel require residential accommodation, preferably reasonably close to their place of work and amenities, but the businesses themselves require office and commercial property as well as storage and other work spaces. This is why the past few decades have seen tremendous construction activity as Gibraltar’s new developments rise into the Rock’s twenty-first century skyline.
Most new property developments in Gibraltar include car parking facilities and a range of communal facilities for the benefit of the residents, and most new housing developments will also include office space, and ground floor commercial units.

Like other housing developments nearby, such as Quay 29 on Queensway and Imperial Spa Plaza at Ocean Village, both of which are also in the process of completion and handover of the new properties, Mid Town provides a variety of apartment sizes, attractive to both families and young, single professionals.
In recent years, there has been a very clear move to provide residential accommodation for those young professionals seeking to move to Gibraltar to pursue career opportunities. The Hub, on Gibraltar’s up-and-coming Eastside, is currently under development and will be providing 143 modern, self-contained studio apartments – ideal starter homes for those
looking to take their first steps on the property ladder. These are also ideal investment opportunities for those investors seeking to expand or even start a property rental portfolio in Gibraltar.
Not all of Gibraltar’s new housing developments are at sea level or on land reclamation sites; there has been a flurry of superb restoration projects providing new housing in the Upper Town. Superbly central and part of Gibraltar’s historic city centre, new developments such as Sylvian Suites near the exclusive Prior Park School, the Arches, developed on the site of the historic Police Barracks and incorporating some of the original architectural features, and Bado’s Gardens, just minutes’ walk from Main Street, have great appeal for the growing professional population of this increasingly affluent city.

Luxury Property Developments in Gibraltar
One of the most exciting features of residential real estate in Gibraltar is being able to be involved in the luxury housing market, especially in a city that is bold and willing to apply innovation in design and construction. Luxury housing developments have been a more recent phenomenon in Gibraltar, linked to the development of the luxury marinas at Ocean Village and Queensway Quay, and also to the beneficial tax arrangements and business- friendly environment that have facilitated investment in luxury properties.
New luxury developments in Gibraltar come as both individual properties, some of which have hit headlines worldwide – sometimes because of their stunning locations and at other times because of innovative design features. Luxury housing developments in Gibraltar can include town houses, stand-alone villas or luxury penthouse apartments, usually with the inclusion of private lifts, gardens and a private pool. When these happen to be situated on rooftop gardens at the edge of a marina overlooking the Bay, as is the case in some of the new Ocean Village developments in Gibraltar, then the acquisition of the property can be a very special investment indeed, and one with more than just financial benefits alone.
At the time of writing, construction is taking place for a new marina-side development at Quay 31, part of the prestigious King’s Wharf complex. And there are plans already being progressed for further developments. New developments of housing, including luxury housing in Gibraltar, shows no sign of slowing down, and demand continues to be as high as ever.
