The 84-unit Residences @ Malden Station dropped on the leasing market back in April. It promised apartment living that was both tech-centric (every unit comes with what the developers call a "computer nook") and transit-oriented (the Orange Line is close by). Move-ins started over the summer and just yesterday the complex held its official ribbon-cutting with Malden Mayor Gary Christensen the guest of honor.
The Residences @ Malden Station, too, are part of a Malden Square area that's going to see roughly 720 more apartments in the near future, including the 195-unit Residences at Malden Square. All are coming just in time given the Thunderdome-ish dearth of supply in bigger neighbor Boston.
About 40 percent of the Residences @ Malden Station's 84 units have been leased so far. Plenty left then (and at these newer complexes as well): Studios start at $1,781; 1-BRs at $1,944; and 2-BRs at $2,451. A 530-square-foot studio is rendered above to give you an idea of Malden Square's brave new world.
