Hoboken is Automated Garage Central!

Automated Garages in Hoboken taking off

Prominent local developer Bijou Properties is building several notable projects right now in Hoboken – including the super-advanced Park and Garden Hoboken uptown, and 900 Monroe over on the west side.

Bijou Properties 1415 Park Place Automated Garage Unitronics

Some Hoboken buildings are more than just “compartments”

But what is setting these projects apart from the rest of the “standard cookie cutter” buildings in the area is the careful thought and planning which Bijou puts into them. Many “sustainable” features like LEED-certification, natural-gas powered common electricity (i.e., a “cogeneration plant”), and some of the largest automated parking garages in the country.

1415 Park Place is getting a nearly 400-spot automated garage that is touted to be able to retrieve cars in 60 to 90 seconds. A smaller 135 spot (also) automated garage is going into the building at 900 Monroe. At 1415 Park Place, over 180 spots will be available to the public for both daily and monthly parking. Price TBD when they open.

For those of you who don’t know what happens within these robotic garages – here’s a rendered video depiction of Unitronics automated garage in West Hollywood:

It’s the future. Even while it was dropping cars, that garage was an example of forward thinking in the right direction. When it came to daily operations, that’s another story.[quote comment=”223496″]this is nothing new…918 garden street was the first garage in 04…250 per month and cars dropped like flys in the begining…guy named gearhart developed the idea..idea started in europe …nothing new. wonder what the fee is now..[/quote]

I like how you describe Bijou as “prominent”. You really don’t know much about them until you have lived in one of their buildings. They always seem to have good intentions, but Bijou is completely clueless and naive in terms of property management for maintenance and upkeep. There is something to be said for larger companies with extensive property management such as Toll Brothers. I know, I know… cookie cutter apartments, but at least they offer their tenants/owners a consistent experience.

Awesome, it’s about time. We could use a couple more like 916 Garden around town, that blend into the neighborhood, maybe one on Washington St. in one of the bank locations.
