Hampshire Cos., Pinnacle To Redevelop Retail Plaza in Montclair, New Jersey
MONTCLAIR, N.J. — The Hampshire Cos., along with joint venture partner Pinnacle Cos., have announced plans to redevelop Lackawanna Plaza in Montclair. The planned 216,772-square-foot mixed-use development is expected to revitalize the complex through the development of a range of modern retail, office and residential spaces while preserving historical elements of the station. Originally built in 1913, Lackawanna Plaza was a stop on the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad until the station’s closure in 1981. The redevelopment plan seeks to reactivate the Plaza through the creation of retail, residential and office spaces while preserving the unique history of the existing buildings. The site will be anchored by a 28,509-square-foot Lidl grocery store. In addition to Lidl, the plan calls for 35,714 square feet of retail space and 21,032 square feet of office space. A 153-unit mixed-use residential building is also planned for the east side of the site along Grove Street. Construction is slated to start later this year.
