Join our mailing list!


We are an emerging cohousing group in the Boston Metro-North area. We are actively searching for new members. If you like what you see, shoot us an email, visit us on Facebook, or join our Meetup group!

We are growing!

We are actively seeking families who live in Malden to join our community. Join our mailing list to learn more about this exciting project!

Bay State Commons holds an Option to Purchase agreement for the American Legion site at 368 Pleasant Street in Malden! Malden was named "Best Place to Raise Your Kids" in Massachusetts by Bloomberg Businessweek in 2009. The site is 750 feet from the Malden T stop, 20 minutes to downtown Boston. It is a short walk to groceries, public and charter schools, restaurants, and public parks. It is 1 mile from the Middlesex Fells, a 2,200 acre state park.

Together with our architects, Neshamkin-French and French 2D, we are designing the future home of Bay State Commons. In the rest of 2017, we are seeking permits and financing for construction. If all goes well, we will break ground in early 2018!

If you’ve been thinking about cohousing, now is the time to seriously check out Bay State Commons. We will be holding an open meeting soon to share more of our plans.

Email baystatecommons@gmail.com to find out when our next meeting is. We look forward to meeting you!
