Berkeley Investments (Berkeley) is working with the City of Malden and the Malden Redevelopment Authority on the repositioning of 200 Exchange Street, which has been rebranded as Exchange Two Hundred. The building is in the heart of Malden Center, immediately across from the Malden Center MBTA stop. Exchange Two Hundred will benefit from significant investment to upgrade all aspects of the building, providing the environs that creative economy tenants have come to expect in a dynamic workplace.
Berkeley is currently working with Boston-based architect, Stantec, to redesign the building by replacing whole sections of exterior brick façade with new glass curtainwall, adding ground floor retail along Exchange and Commercial Streets, updating the landscaping, adding cutting-edge lobby and amenity areas, increasing bicycle parking, as well as modernizing the building systems. To appeal to innovation-economy tenants on the upper floors, Berkeley is adding a light well and grand stairway into the large and deep floor plates to allow tenants the benefit of more natural daylight and collaboration space. Berkeley anticipates that creative office, medical office, data center and retail tenants will be attracted to all the benefits Malden Center has to offer, including great transportation, living, dining and entertainment options. The renovations are expected to get underway in July.
