Center City Mall is a shopping mall in Downtown Paterson, New Jersey. Built at a cost of over $100 million, the 320,000-square-foot (30,000 m2) space opened in 2008 in the heart of the city's central business district.[1][2] It is located with the city's urban enterprise zone, which permits merchants to charge half of the state's general sales tax rate (from 6.625% to 3.3125%).[3]

Among shops are Marshalls, Modells, Skechers, The Children's Place, AT&T, PSEG, TD Bank, PriceRite and other shops and restaurants.[4][1] It includes the eight-screen cinema, the Fabian 8, on the upper level.[5] Hamilton and Ward is a restaurant located with the mall

The mall has struggled to retain tenants within the city with a population with limited buying power.[6]

Various proposals have been put forth to expand the mall[7] including a roof-top sports arena and underground parking using state credits.[8] The redevelopers of the mall have also proposed a hotel.
