Demolition Ceremony Marks Beginning of School’s 70,000sf Expansion Plan

Malden, MA – Malden Catholic High School’s expansion plan for its academic and athletic programs recently reached a significant milestone with a demolition ceremony at 50 Crystal Street in Malden. Timberline Construction Corporation (Timberline) will be completing the design-build of a new, academic building and indoor athletic facility.

This ground-up, 70,000sf in-house, design-build project is designed to provide state-of-the-art academic and athletic facilities to the Malden Catholic community. To accommodate the school’s projected enrollment growth and expanding class offerings for the current high school population, the new building will provide 16 new classrooms.

The design of the facility extends beyond academics by incorporating updated, versatile athletic spaces featuring a field house, gymnasium, locker rooms and weight room.

The demolition ceremony was attended by Malden Catholic’s President Thornburg, Mayor Gary Christenson, Councilor Chris Simonelli, Former Board Chair Jim Donovan, the school’s board of trustees, Timberline and Scalora Consulting Group. Together, they symbolically marked the beginning of a journey representing the school’s commitment to growth and progress, ensuring that its students have access to exceptional facilities that will prepare them for success in both academics and athletics.

Timberline started demolition of the existing building in October, and a groundbreaking will be held in early 2024 with completion in 2025.
