Bay State Commons (BSC) is in the process of clearing our last permitting hurdles that will allow us to demolish the old American Legion building at 368 Pleasant Street, Malden, and begin construction on our three-story, 30-unit building. We are aiming for a mid-2021 move-in. Twenty-three of our 30 units have been pre-sold to those who have gone through the membership process to become equity members.
A few units available
We still have several of our studio, one-bedroom and one bedroom+ units remaining, as seen below. If you want to learn more about cohousing and BSC, please join us at our meetings (first and third Tuesdays of each month; see listings at Meetup or Facebook.)
In addition to private units, the property is envisioned to have 5,000 square feet of expanded common spaces, including a meeting & work room, entertainment room, wood shop, yoga/workout studio, kids play room, arts room, music room, social room/pub, great room and large common kitchen and dining area for occasional shared meals. There are outdoor decks on each floor, and a courtyard with green space that is for gardening and other outdoor activities.
