Montclair OKs Giant Mixed-Use Project


Share post:

If you think the development planned for 200 Bloomfield Avenue in Verona is big, wait until you take a look at the mixed-use project that the Montclair Planning Board approved Monday night.

Dubbed CentroVerde, it would cover the former DCH Montclair property from Orange Road to Valley Road along Bloomfield Avenue. Three six-story buildings are planned for the site, with ground-level commercial and retail space, and residences above that would be both rentals and condominiums–nearly 320,000 square feet of new living space in all. There will also be a parking deck, which, according to Baristanet, will have room for more than 500 cars.

The project will run from Orange Road to Valley Road along Bloomfield Avenue.

  1. This isn’t Verona. According to the article, it already has commercial buildings established on site. They will not be adding an ingress/egress on a 19′ wide residential street for the commercial traffic like the developer plans in Verona. Are they demolishing a beautiful Victorian home and cutting down a lovely copper beech tree too? What about the blasting? The Montclair project is not the same as the Verona issue.
