New ParkFast commuter lot opens in Secaucus

Newark-based real estate company Edison Properties announced on Tuesday it has opened a new Edison ParkFast commuter parking lot at the Frank R. Lautenberg Station at Secaucus Junction in Secaucus.

The lot, located at 650 Paul Amico Way, has 387 self-parking spaces and is the newest addition to a growing number of parking facilities popping up nearby the station. Edison ParkFast also owns and operates a separate 1,094-space lot outside the same station.

The gated facility includes amenities to maximize security and convenience, it said, including full camera coverage, on-site attendant during operations hours and the addition of a newly-constructed sidewalk.

“We are extremely excited to open this new and much-needed parking lot for the tens of thousands of New Jersey commuters who pass through Secaucus each day,” Shaun Kirby, president, Edison ParkFast, said. “Having seen the incredible demand for our existing parking facility at this station, we look forward to helping new customers ease their daily commute by utilizing our newest location.”

Edison Properties said it acquired the asset, which was the former home of a Goya manufacturing plant, in 2016.

“The new parking lot is a welcome addition to the Secaucus Junction area,” Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli said. “It is an added convenience for all commuters and the special discounts offered to Secaucus residents will make it even better for us.”

“This expansion of our parking business comes at a critical time as New Jersey commuters continue to seek efficient ways to get into New York City, while local residents also look for alternatives to driving into midtown Manhattan,” Jon Dario, chief operating officer of Edison Properties, the parent company of Edison ParkFast, said.
