Since Malta's Independence in 1964, there has been a rapid increase in buildings all over the country. However, most of the urban areas are concentrated around the Grand Harbour and Marsamxett Harbour areas where some of the country's most busy places are situated; Sliema, Saint Julian's, Paceville, Msida, Gżira, Ta' Xbiex and Pietà.
As cars and road transport grew more and more popular in the country, the population started to spread out to farther areas and nowadays some other urban areas have developed; Saint Paul's Bay (including Qawra, Buġibba and Xemxija) and Mellieħa in the North, whilst having Marsaskala and the Malta Freeport area in the South of the country.
Some of the tall buildings in Malta, such as the Metropolis Plaza in Gżira, are still under construction. The highest structure ever built in Malta was the Delimara Power Station chimney, standing 150 metres (490 ft) above ground, until its demolition in 2017–18. The tallest building will be one of the towers at the Metropolis Plaza in Gżira, with 33 storeys.
