Plan Malden Square


A group of 34 Master in Urban Planning students from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design recently presented their report of ideas and plans for improvements to Malden Square.

Through a Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) grant obtained by the Office of Mayor Gary Christenson, the students researched Malden's past to help influence their ideas on Malden's future by studying the Square and speaking with community members.

These teams of graduate students reported on strategies for Open Space and Natural Systems, Redevelopment, Transportation, Urban Design, Downtown Activities, and Housing and residents were encouraged to discuss, debate, and modify the plans as presented.
