Paramus Park is situated between the northbound lanes of Route 17 and the southbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway, roughly two miles from both roads’ interchanges with Route 4. It is unrestricted from the northbound Garden State Parkway at exit 163 and the southbound Garden State Parkway at exit 165. The southbound lanes have access to the mall’s back parking lot. In addition, two access roads off of NJ 17 provide an entrance to the park. The entry to Sears Drive is only accessible from the northbound lanes. At the same time, southbound traffic may reach A&S Drive through an exit, and an overpass built expressly for the mall.
With 767,000 square feet (71,000 square meters) and approximately 100 stores, Paramus Park is a more regional, destination-oriented mall than the three-times-larger Westfield Garden State Plaza, with higher-than-average sales per square foot, assessed by industry experts to be between $400 and $500 per square foot or more. According to a 2011 NorthJersey.com research, the mall garnered visitors escaping the late-2000s recession because of its smaller stores, less traffic, and location along the Garden State Parkway in an affluent area.
Paramus Park, Westfield Garden State Plaza, The Outlets at Bergen Town Center, and Fashion Center account for most of the $5 billion in yearly retail sales produced in Paramus, which is more than any other ZIP Code in the country. The 107 establishments in Paramus Park attract 6 million tourists each year. The mall, located in Bergen County, is subject to both the county’s Blue regulations and the borough’s more challenging code, which requires it to shut down on Sundays.
Paramus Park is a retail mall in Paramus, New Jersey, in the United States of America. Brookfield Properties owns the building, which opened in 1974 and has a gross leasable area (GLA) of 770,941 square feet (71,622.8 m2).
At its completion, Paramus Park was one of three enclosed malls in Paramus. The Fashion Center, situated near Paramus Park on Route 17, was the first indoor shopping center created primarily for women. It opened in 1967. When the original outdoor mall was covered in 1973, the Bergen Mall, established in 1958 and situated on Route 4, became the second. (At the time, Garden State Plaza, which opened in 1957 as an outdoor mall, had not yet been converted to an enclosed mall; it did so in 1984.) Paramus Park is still one of three indoor malls in the city; the Fashion Center and The Shoppes on IV, built after Paramus Park, have been converted to outdoor retail plazas.
