      I felt apartments at Malden Gardens are pricey. As apts are not recent constructions but they offer strong public transport to Boston and other neighborhood. It offers nice city view if you live above 10 floors. You will see many old people in this tower staying since long time. Management is not very welcoming or quick responsive to issues. Gym facility has very few equipment in poor condition. It has in-house swimming pool which remains open almost whole year.
