Project Detail

Malden City Hall

New Seat of Government | Malden, Massachusetts

Upon the completion of its new Police Headquarters, the City of Malden retained Flansburgh for the second phase of the Downtown Revitalization Project, the fit-out of 47,625 sf of interior space for municipal use within a new building shell. This new Flansburgh-designed Malden City Hall will be part of a thriving mixed use development, and is integral to the City's vision of redeveloping Malden Center into a vibrant, inviting, and thriving urban center. The design reflects the values of the City including quality of living, transparency of government, and an inviting and welcoming community. The universal barrier free design of the main entrance from Pleasant Street creates a bright modern space that features accents of the City’s quality of character and dedication to its citizens. The wayfinding features allow a visitor to quickly recognize the zoning of the City Hall departments with graphics and interactive kiosk and electronic display panels. The lower level consists of the public area of the lobby with a comfortable lounge area and the community room which is also utilized by the City Council. The next two floors are dedicated to departments most frequented by the City, residents, and visitors. The fourth floor is dedicated to the City administrators such as the Mayor’s office, City Council, and legal department with additional outdoor gathering space on the roof plaza. The fifth floor is dedicated to the City services and staff.
