Bay State Cohousing is a multigenerational community 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 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 community spans four generations, including families, couples, and single people, with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. During the development process — through thick, thin, and Covid — we evolved into a real community, growing in our capacity to support each other and keep us all growing. And in late 2022, after nearly a decade in development, we finally moved in and began actually living in community!
