Description:

Update November 2022: WE’RE MOVING IN! After many delays, our building is finally ready, and we’re now in the process of moving in. Lots of boxes and furniture in motion! Our first meal together in our new home will be Thanksgiving — which has added meaning this year.

Bay State Commons is a cohousing community growing in Malden, Massachusetts, an inner suburb of Boston. We are located at 368 Pleasant Street, 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 has 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 also has a patio and yard for gathering and gardening, shared decks on the upper floors, and underground parking.

Our new home has an award-winning, environmentally friendly design 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.

Our multigenerational community includes families, couples, and single people, with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. Through thick, thin, and Covid, we’ve already evolved into a community, growing in our capacity to support each other and keep us all growing. And now we finally get to live in community!
