An 80-unit apartment building will be built on the Florence Street site, and a mixed-use building with 195 housing units, retail space, and a parking garage will be built at the Dartmouth Street location. A small municipal lot will replace the Florence Street lot in about a year, and the Dartmouth Street parking garage will open in about two years, according to the Malden Redevelopment Authority.
