The Future of the Malden Hospital Site

As of June 7, 2018, there were four proposals that had been discussed or presented in various city circles / meetings related to the future of the Malden Hospital site.

These included the following:

At a June 27, 2018 Ward 3 public meeting, a fifth plan was introduced to the public, with slides shown but not apparently widely shared or distributed

In early February 2019, a sixth plan was revealed. It's unclear when that plan was produced or initially circulated, but evidence indicated it had been discussed privately with a number of city officials and city residents.

As of February 11, 2019 there were five plans in circulation, but only three had been shared in wide circulation by the authors.

To recap, here are links to information on the four proposals which have been publicly disclosed.
