New Police Headquarters Open for Business

The new Malden Police Headquarters is open for business.  The 24,000 square foot facility is located at 800 Eastern Avenue.  This is the first phase of a plan by the City to revitalize Malden Square by demolishing the existing City Hall and Police Station at 200 Pleasant Street, reopening Pleasant Street to through traffic and connecting Downtown Malden to the Malden Center T Station. Jefferson Apartment Group will then redevelop the combined 184 and 200 Pleasant Street sites into a thriving mixed-use retail/residential/office development.

The State provided $9.85 million in MassWorks Infrastructure Program funds for this transformative development to aid in the construction of the police headquarters.  This will be followed by a private investment of approximately $130 million by Jefferson Apartment Group for the Pleasant Street redevelopment project.

The Police Headquarters Project Team members include Flansburgh Architects; Hill International Inc., the project manager; and Commodore Builders, the construction manager. The Building Committee members include Mayor Gary Christenson, Ward Three Councillor John Matheson, Ward Six Councillor Neil Kinnon, Ward Seven Councillor Neal Anderson, Police Chief Kevin Molis, Mayor’s Appointee Ron Hogan and Public Facilities Director Eric Rubin. The Advisory Committee members include Malden Redevelopment Authority Executive Director Deborah Burke, former Assistant City Solicitor Thomas Brennan and Special Assistant to the Mayor Maria Luise.
