Bloomfield Center has changed massively in the past five years. This view along Broad Street shows the new 'The Green at Bloomfield' building on the right with the Bloomfield College Franklin Street Residence Hall and Barnes & Noble location on the left. 'The Green' was built in a little over the year, and several buildings, including the former Annie Sez store and headquarters of The Independent Press and The Glen Ridge Paper, used to be located at the site.
The photos below show when construction began in May, 2015.
