Studio Montclair, a non-profit organization that hosts exhibits of professional and emerging artists, has signed a lease to occupy a 1,100 square-foot studio in the ground-floor retail space at The Montclarion at Bay Street Station, according to Richard Polton, a member of the development team. The Studio Montclair space, located at 127 Bloomfield Ave, will feature a gallery, meeting facilities, workshops and offices for Studio Montclair. There will also be eight large street front windows programmed for public art displays.

For two decades plus Studio Montclair has promoted culture and education in the visual arts in northern New Jersey through events, community programs, development workshops, lectures and talks, as well as curated art exhibits.

“We’re delighted Studio Montclair has decided to call The Montclarion at Bay Street Station home,” Polton says. “This is a wonderful fit for both the organization, the neighborhood and residents of the building. This growing arts organization will unquestionably enliven the Eastern Gateway area of Montclair and bring a range of activities to the neighborhood. We’re excitedly looking forward to a variety of openings, displays, sales and other art related activities that will engage a wide audience.”

Polton says the addition of Studio Montclair displays the developer’s support for the local arts community and vision to create a building that’s not only a residential landmark, but also a great place to access the cultural resources of Montclair. Studio Montclair is expected to open this fall.

The Montclarion at Bay Street Station is nearing a complete lease-up with 32 of its 40 one-and two-bedroom apartment homes reserved. Value Asset Management, the exclusive leasing and management agent for the five-story LEED Silver building, is expecting to complete its leasing program less than five months after opening to the public.

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
