Residents may rent a parking space in the Exchange Street garage for $150.00 per month. Parking spaces will be available to residents on a first come first served basis. The management office will retain information on all legitimate vehicles to be parked in the garage. Cars illegally parked in assigned parking spaces will be towed at the vehicle owner’s expense.
Residents may not perform vehicle maintenance of any kind while parked in the garage.
Residents park their vehicles in the Exchange Street garage solely at their own risk, and should therefore take care to remove valuables and secure their vehicle when parking. Because of specific garage clearance heights, not all tow trucks will fit in the garage safely, therefore residents should report illegally parked vehicles in the garage to the management office rather than calling a towing company. Management will contact an approved towing provider.
Visitor parking is available for guests of Residents. The cost is dependent on the time needed. There will be a visitors permit issued.
Visitor parking is also available in the neighboring public garage, or in public parking spaces along Exchange and surrounding streets.
Your access FOB will work on any designated entrance way as well as the lobby, common area living room and fitness facility doors. Look for the rectangular black FOB reader adjacent to the door latch.
A SECURE COMMUNITY:
In order to continue to keep The Exchange Street Apartments community secure, please do not allow unknown individuals to enter the building. If someone asks you to open the door for them, advise them that they need to utilize the intercom system to be admitted as a guest in the building. If you observe anyone loitering or looking suspicious, contact the Management Office. If it is after business hours, you can contact the Malden Police Department for their assistance. Your cooperation in keeping our community secure is much appreciated.
In order to receive packages at Exchange Street, you must be on a lease. Packages that we receive addressed to non-residents will be sent back. Unfortunately, we claim no responsibility to their whereabouts after that.
Your packages are safe and secure with our Package Concierge System. Pickup as you please with a safe locker package delivery system.
You can also sign up to have your packages delivered to your apartment.
Mailbox keys will be distributed at time of move in. Mailboxes are located off the Lobby on the first floor down the hall from the elevators. Please put your name on the inside of the mailbox you are assigned to. This is necessary in order for the Post office to deliver your mail. Also, please download and fill out our package/letter form.
If you are going to be away for more than 10 days or unable to pick up your mail, please file a “mail hold” with the post office. Otherwise your mail maybe “returned to sender”.
There is a trash room available on every floor to accommodate normal household waste. Trash must be put in the trash shoot, not left in the room. During a busy move-in period, dumpsters are provided in the lobby level of the garage adjacent to the garage entrance. All boxes should be broken down and trash must be in bags.
We’re pleased to offer free recycling for paper, glass, aluminum and plastics – and no sorting necessary. The bins are located in the lobby level garage. Please fill them up!
The onsite fitness facility is open for your use and convenience. The fitness room is open 24 hours. Sanitized wipes are located in the fitness room to wipe down all fitness equipment after use.
