Our building is nearing completion, and we still have room for one more household!
Last year, Bay State Commons cohousing held a groundbreaking ceremony for our new home in Malden MA, and since then we’ve excitedly watched our plans becoming reality. We anticipate moving in early in 2022.
As of November 2021, we still have one unit available, a 2BR — a good size for various household types (a couple, a single parent & child, etc.) … or maybe for you? Please get in touch with us if you’d like more information, or join us at one of our meetings to learn more about us and our project first-hand. We meet (via Zoom) twice a month, every first and third Tuesday; details can be found at our Meetup page (
Bay State Commons is a cohousing community growing in Malden, Massachusetts, an inner suburb of Boston. Our new home is currently under construction at 368 Pleasant Street, located a short walk from the Malden Center subway station (20 minutes to downtown Boston), schools, groceries, restaurants, and public parks. The Northern Strand Community Trail and Bike to the Sea pass nearby, and the Middlesex Fells (a 2,200-acre state park) is one mile away.
Working with our architects and consultants, we have designed an energy-efficient 30-unit building for the site. Our community will have 5,000 sq ft of shared common space, including kitchen, dining room, living room, meeting rooms, kids’ space, exercise room, art room, and soundproofed music room. The property will also have a patio and yard for gathering and gardening, shared decks on the upper floors, and underground parking. (For more about the design, please visit our website.)
Our multigenerational community includes families, couples, and single people, with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. We aim to create a cohousing community that fosters group cohesiveness and serendipitous social interaction among neighbors, growing in our capacity to support each other and keep us all growing. Ours will be an environmentally friendly home that reflects our commitment to sustainability and emphasizes beauty in both architecture and landscape. We value a balance between the private and the shared, with individually owned homes complemented by extensive common facilities and shared green space.
