In a story published by the Hudson Reporter on Wednesday, a contracting company has submitted a proposal to make Secaucus the home of Amazon’s second global headquarters.
Midland Park-based DT Allen, which has 60 acres of property in town, is looking to turn 105 acres near the Secaucus Junction train station into the new site for Amazon’s new facility. More than 200 cities and towns have made proposals to Amazon, which will make its final decision in 2018.
Mayor Michael Gonnelli and DT Allen’s vice president confirmed the proposal to the Reporter. But Gonnelli confirmed to the paper that Secaucus officials are against the plan because it contains corporate housing, which would add to the town’s population.
