Of all the selling points Hudson County has, one sore spot seems to come up all the time: parking. Complaints about the lack of parking in Hoboken or Jersey City over the years could fill an entire set of Encyclopedias, but relief in the form of a new car club and storage facility is coming soon to Northwest Hoboken.
Hudson Stables is putting the finishing touches on renovations to a warehouse uptown on Madison Street, which will initially offer luxury car storage for vehicles when they open in the Fall. The project comes from Jonathan Lloyd-Jones, an investor in Classic Car Club Manhattan.
“The New York-area can be pretty hostile to automobiles,” says Lloyd-Jones. “We want to give members a ‘no worries’ experience when it comes to their cars.”
Local developer Pegasus Group is building out the space, which will do a lot more than just give members a safe, secure, humidity-controlled spot to store their vehicles off the street. Members will have access to a lounge area that’s being built in the space, which will be outfitted with televisions and a bar.
Hudson Stables, who are pitching their services to more of a car enthusiast demographic, will make sure customers’ cars are ready to roll whenever needed. The facility will take care of detailing, fueling and inspections for all the vehicles they store and will also feature a fully-stocked workshop and a detail bay for members who want to get their hands dirty and wash their cars themselves.
The club will additionally provide consignment services for customers wishing to sell their cars or motorcycles. Race car storage, including spots for equipment, will also be available, as will transportation services to tracks for races.
