Major Façade Changes at Iconic Downtown Building

The owners of the Dowling Building located at 6 Pleasant Street have made significant improvements to the façade of this iconic structure which sits as an entrance to Malden Square.  The one-time dark, almost foreboding awning at 6 Pleasant Street has been removed and replaced with new paint, sleek signage and lighting.


Mayor Gary Christenson and the Malden Redevelopment Authority had been advocating for this upgrade for several years. Timing for this project is appropriate given all the economic development and progress going on in the Square. The Dowling Building has a mix of tenants including office and ground floor retail.
