J Malden Center Fully Complete: Revitalizing Downtown Malden
Callahan Construction Managers announces today, in partnership with Jefferson Apartment Group and the City of Malden, that they have completed the new J Malden Center. Designed by CBT, J Malden Center is a reimagination of Malden Center, which now connects residences with the MBTA station, shops, and restaurants.
Jefferson Apartment Group has worked in collaboration with the City of Malden since 2013 to bring about this transformation of Malden Center. The project is a testament to the persistence and creativity needed to bring a high- quality mixed-use public-private partnership to fruition. From the outset, the project was intended to bring vibrancy to the city’s historical retail corridor by reinvigorating the gateway to Malden Center with an iconic design and activated ground floor uses that will enhance the experience of all Malden residents.
“We are thrilled to see that vision come to life as Pleasant Street is now re-opened and providing direct access to the MBTA, Malden’s new City Hall is a much more welcoming and accessible building for both employees and residents, and our residents are able to enjoy all the amenities Malden Center has to offer,” said Sandi Silk, Senior Vice President at Jefferson Apartment Group.
The story will be completed as new retail and restaurants begin to open later this summer when Malden Center Fine Wines and Soul City Yoga open for business as the newest businesses on Pleasant Street.”
J Malden Center brings over 550,000 square feet of mixed-use space that includes retail and restaurant space, 320 residential apartments, and an expansive civic office condominium that is now the new Malden City Hall, strategically positioned at the Gateway to Malden Center. The project’s design focused on reconnecting a major pedestrian street link to the central hub of the city. The development is located across the street from the Malden Center T Station and offers nearly 25,000 square feet of new retail.
“Collaboration between the CBT design team, Jefferson Apartment Group, the City of Malden, and Callahan Construction was integral to creating an impactful project that would serve as a gateway to the city”, said Ellen Perko, Senior Project Manager at CBT. “J Malden Center reinvigorates Pleasant Street with vital urban and civic space, introducing downtown living in a dynamic, mixed-use environment.”
The J Malden Center project fosters a civic, commercial, and residential precedent for the city of Malden’s future. The residential project includes a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments with parking for 320 vehicles, inclusive of 80 publicly accessible parking spaces.
The design of the project brings out a sense of play in residents and provides a sophisticated backdrop for fun. Residents have access to an all-inclusive living experience with shopping, restaurants, and transportation all just steps away. J Malden Center also features over 30,000 square feet of amenities, offering everything from an indoor solarium, rooftop terrace, resort-style pool with sundeck featuring outdoor swings, hammocks and cabanas, courtyard with outdoor kitchen featuring an outdoor dining room and grills, lounge seating around a fire pit with outdoor gaming, and fitness center featuring Peloton bicycles.
“J Malden Center broke ground in March 2017 and although we faced many challenges throughout the course of the project we listened to JAG’s concerns and adapted to help them achieve the desired design,” said Patrick Callahan, President of Callahan Construction Managers. “The finished product speaks volumes about the persistence and dedication of the Callahan project team and our close collaboration with JAG and the City of Malden, and we are so proud to be part of Malden’s downtown revitalization.”

Construction Continues on Transformative Jefferson at Malden Center Development
Boston-based builder Callahan Construction Managers, joining forces with CBT Architects and Jefferson Apartment Group, are building a massive mixed-use development that will transform Malden Center, replacing the city's former government center with three new buildings oriented about a walkable, 21st-century streetscape.
Jefferson at Malden Center will feature 320 market-rate apartment residences, more than 22,500 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 45,000-square-foot office space that will serve as Malden's new City Hall. The future complex will reconnect Pleasant Street to Commercial and Florence Streets for the first time since the former City Hall's construction in the early 1970s, helping restore Malden Center's walkability, creating new public parking and improving access to the train station.
Current construction is ongoing on all three buildings comprising the complex. In the North building, roof truss installation is complete, as is 1st-floor fireproofing installations. Interior and exterior pre-sheetrock wall installation is ongoing, as well as plumbing, electrical and mechanical installations. Additional construction includes exterior sheathing waterproofing installation and sixth-floor wall panels. In the South building, floor truss installation is wrapping up with floor wall panels installation to follow. Slab on deck placements are currently ongoing for levels. Underground plumbing and electrical backfill will be complete this week. In the Northeast Building, structural steel installation is ongoing and should be completed in mid-May. Level 1 slab on deck placement occurred the first week of May.
Work begins on transformative Malden Center mixed-use development
Demolition has begun to make way for Jefferson at Malden Center, a $120 million development that will replace former government buildings with three new mixed-use buildings and reconnect Malden Center through a pedestrian streetscape. Malden’s former city hall and police station, as well as the former First Church of Malden, are now being demolished, clearing 3.2 acres for Jefferson at Malden Center’s construction. The development will restore the connection of Pleasant Street, one of Malden’s main thoroughfares, to Commercial and Florence Streets and the Malden Center train station. Pleasant Street has been divided into two by City Hall and closed to through traffic since the early 1970s, when the building was built at Pleasant Street’s center facing the train station.
Demolition work will continue through this Summer, after which foundation work for Jefferson at Malden Center will begin. The development is expected to open by Fall 2019. Jefferson at Malden Center will feature 320 market-rate apartment residences, over 22,500 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 45,000-square-foot office space that will serve as Malden's new City Hall.
