Time to give it a standalone thread. The IS NJ Morristown Building is closing and the replacement location is on Valley Road in Wayne. What do you think about the whole thing? Post your thoughts, I'll go first. 1. The new building seems pretty far from any major highway. If you look at the location, you'll see it is pretty equally far from 287, 80 and 208 . The current building is next to 287. Mahwah is right off 17 and close to 287. I bet the lease was cheap considering it is quite literally in the "middle of nowhere". 2. Anyone south of the current location is going to be faced with the gauntlet of the 287/80/46 interchange. Your new commute will be significantly longer and more congested. 3. Anyone south of the current building will probably start looking for a job in Mahwah one the internal jobs start opening up. It will take less time to get to Mahwah than the new location considering travelling to Mahwah will be major highway compared to 'country lanes'. 4. I predict very few will actually leave UPS in 2010 because of the new location. The economy is still bad for IT and finding a new job will mean sacrifices including the possibility of an even longer commute. 5. A lot of people I spoke to in the Morristown building actually will have their commutes shortened. If this was intentional, kudos to the planners. 6. A big duh to the current building's owner. With the commercial real estate market crashing, your building is probably going to remain empty like the refurbished building behind the Morristown location. What were you thinking? 7. A big duh to the Morristown town council. Failing to step in to help keep UPS is plainly stupid. Lots of local businesses are going to notice when Motown is closed. I wonder if the Morristown town council even knew or cared?
