Site Plan & Units Available

Things are moving quickly at Bay State Commons (BSC)! We have cleared our last permitting hurdle, allowing us to demolish the vacant structure at 368 Pleasant Street, Malden, and have a February 2020 groundbreaking for construction on our three-story, 30-unit building. This puts us on a path for move-in during the second half of 2021. Twenty-two of our 30 units have been pre-sold to those who have gone through the membership process to become equity members.

Units available

See below for a list of available units. 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.)

Special features

In addition to private units, the property will 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. The energy-efficient building will mean low utility prices for residents, while the presence of 45 or so friends as neighbors means there will be a lot of sharing of tools, appliances and all sorts of things. So each household doesn’t have to purchase its own circular saw, deluxe mixer or extra-large pot that you use once a year.
