Re: Malden + Melrose

This is a site with 5 minute bus service to Malden Ctr, and a not unpleasant walk on more temperate days. It's tucked out of the way. I could understand not wanting to add traffic to the Fellsway E, but it sucks to see Malden blow it here. Why not seize the opportunity to build housing where no one else is?

It's a symptom of hyper local governance. When you have a city that is basically a neighborhood of a larger city controlled 100% locally the NIMBYs have more power.

Re: Malden + Melrose

There is a building under construction on Florence St (next to 10 Florence) in Malden. It looks like what used to be the parking deck is being turned into a residential building.

They are also using the same ugly facade they used on its older sibling.

Re: Malden + Melrose

I took a ride through Malden Square the other day. Its becoming very hip--
*Hundreds of Condos centrally located for instant transit access to Boston--
*Lots of restaurants
* the ARCH going on the new condo development on the old city hall area looks like it could be unique.
*boda borg located there.

Very interesting when the city hall condo development is done. The area looks like it has a ton of potential for a very lively crowd.

The arch looks to be part of a skywalk. I agree though the area does look pretty cool. Here are some renderings: https://maldenredevelopment.com/site...t_may_2017.pdf

Re: Malden + Melrose

If anyone could take some pictures of the new developments around the old City Hall area I'd really appreciate it. I lived in Malden for years but haven't gotten back there since I moved away back in 2012. I've heard the changes are amazing.

Re: Malden + Melrose

Unsure of what building this is, but its on the corner of Canal and Medford (big parking lot is ugly)


Old city hall development:
standing under the OL bridge at Malden Center


Pleasant and Commercial intersection


A little further up


Another new building right next to the tracks (what was this a parking garage before? lol)


Looking down pleasant


New building on the corner of washington and exchange




Really a shame that they couldnt do anything better than a 1+5

A few years back Malden put a 6 floor max on new construction.

Hmm. Well they still seem to be abiding by it.
