Secaucus Junction might be the first stop for many outbound trains leaving New York Penn Station, but there are few hotels in the area immediately surrounding this station in the Meadowlands.

With the exception of the Xchange at Secaucus Junction complex, much of the developed land near this transportation hub is used for parking or industrial purposes.


Now, a new proposal calls for constructing a hotel that would be situated just a half mile’s drive from the station.

A developer is looking to construct a Comfort Inn and Suites location at 82 County Avenue in the Hudson County town, according to a public notice from New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA) Director of Land Use Management and Chief Engineer Sara Sundell.


The proposed hotel would be constructed within the Hackensack Meadowlands District’s Neighborhood Commercial zone by Vedant Hospitality and consist of 72 guest rooms.

Located next to Legends Diner and a New Jersey Turnpike Authority facility, the property previously contained a house but currently sits vacant.

Vedant Hospitality, which was registered out of the Clark offices of the TAK Group, filed an application with the NJSEA for variances related to use, height, and parking for the project.

The Comfort Inn and Suites location is slated to be 57 feet tall, 22 feet higher than the zone’s limit. Plus, according to the notice, the hotel’s parking lot would include 62 spaces, 10 shy of what is required in this zone.

A hearing on the matter was scheduled for Tuesday.
