Bay State Commons Groundbreaking

Thursday, February 27, 2020

City Officials and Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) Executive Director Deborah Burke attended the groundbreaking for Bay State Commons at 368 Pleasant Street, Malden.  Bay State Commons is a 30-unit condominium complex that will operate as a co-housing community.  Co-housing balances private units with shared common spaces for group meals, activities, etc. to give residents the feeling of a traditional neighborhood. Residents will typically work with the architect to create a development plan for the units and common spaces.  There are currently 175 co-housing communities nationally, according to Bay State Commons.
