Lackawanna Terminal is a small shopping mall in Montclair, Essex County, New Jersey, United States, originally built as a railroad station in 1913 on the Montclair Branch of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad. The station building was built of brick, and followed a Grecian-Doric style of architecture. The station had six tracks, and electric service began in 1930. It and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 8, 1973.
The station closed in 1981, and was replaced by the Bay Street station two blocks to the east as the first stage of the building of the Montclair Connection, forming the modern Montclair-Boonton Line. The building was then converted into its current form. The adjacent Grove Street Bridge, a reinforced concrete overpass spanning the terminal tracks with enclosed stair connections to the platforms, was demolished and replaced with an at-grade street. Until April 2015, the structure was occupied by a Pathmark supermarket store and several fast food service establishments and several low-end clothing retailers, but in the wake of announced plans to alter the building's "character" by allowing the leases of current tenants to lapse without renewal and to seek out a different and more high-end quality of commercial tenant, the terminal now stands mostly vacant.
