Where the Suburb Meets the City
Montclair Center is classic and edgy, urban and urbane, great business and great fun. Montclair Center is a First Suburb and a modern Transit Village. Most of all, Montclair Center is a great place to shop, dine, work, live and play. These exciting dichotomies and more are summed up in our tagline — Montclair Center: Where the Suburb Meets the City.
Montclair Center Business Improvement District (the BID) celebrates its sixteenth anniversary in 2018 and continues to proudly serve the businesses, property owners, residents and customers of the district.
The BID was founded by merchants and property owners who were concerned about on-street aesthetics, safety, code enforcement, customer attraction and district marketing. Montclair Center Corporation started operations in the summer of 2002. Since that time, Montclair Center has become known for its vibrant street life, fabulous restaurants, award winning retail, great art scene and pedestrian friendly office setting.
In 2012, 2013 and 2018 this ribbon of commercial zoning was recognized as New Jersey’s Favorite Downtown Arts District and A Great Downtown. In 2015, Downtown Montclair won the Great American Main Street Award for the best Downtown in the US. And no wonder! The district is New Jersey’s restaurant row; an arts and entertainment destination; home to some of the best independent, national, and international retailers; and a magnet for creative businesses.
