A new residential and commercial building is currently being built on Oakland Avenue in Jersey City – and it will have a fully-automated car parking system with 181 parking spaces. The system with the stolzer brand name is designed and manufactured by Stopa Anlagenbau GmbH.
The company received the good news about the contract a few days ago. This is a resounding success for Stopa and its American cooperation partner Automotion (APS) – and still more proof of the convincing advantages of the sophisticated technology from the Achern-based company. The car parking system will considerably relieve the future parking situation on Oakland Avenue. Compared with conventional car parks, fully-automatic car parking systems can accommodate twice as many vehicles in the same space.
Residents in detached houses and blocks of flats in the area around Oakland Avenue in Jersey City, have been living next door to tradesmen, workshops, and warehouses for decades. This is a typical, mixed area utilization, well known in American cities. However, the face of the Oakland Avenue neighborhood will change dramatically over the next few years – and the keyword is consolidation. Existing areas will be used more efficiently. A 15-story commercial and residential building with a considerable floor area is being built on Oakland Avenue – and local residents are really worried that the parking problem will get worse. However, 181 parking spaces of the fully-automated system by Stopa will certainly ease the situation, at least here.
The universal car parking system, auto-UP for short, will be used in the building. Auto-UP extends over three levels and vehicles will be transferred to three transfer rooms. Two fully-automated storage and retrieval units are planned. They will convey vehicles safely and reliably to and from their parking places via the relevant transfer rooms. Drivers can also exit the building easily in their cars because their vehicles are already facing in the direction of travel. The fully-automatic car parking systems from Stopa are characterized by long working lives, high levels of operational reliability and low maintenance costs. They are an investment for the future, not only in terms of total lifetime costs but also for urban planners, architects, investors – and the future of our cities. With its stolzer brand name, Stopa is looking forward to the start of the project in Jersey City.
