Community Investment Strategies announced Friday its new affordable housing community in Plainsboro has begun leasing.

The new development, The Place at Plainsboro, combines social and recreational services with housing for residents, CIS said.

The community has 71 homes, including townhome-style and ADA compliant apartments, 14 one-bedroom, 34 two-bedroom and 22 three-bedroom units each with private entrances. It has amenities including a community center, outdoor patio, community garden, washer and dryers, air conditioning, off-street parking and more.

“We are excited to bring high-quality housing to residents in the Plainsboro area,” Christiana Foglio, founder and CEO of CIS, said. “We expect high demand for these high-quality, contemporary apartments at affordable pricing. We are excited to introduce another innovative project by the CIS team.”

All homes, CIS said, can be subject to income qualifications to lease to help Plainsboro meet its affordable housing need.

“We are pleased with the housing opportunity these apartments bring to Plainsboro.  It is a well-planned development, excellent quality and close to our town center. It furthers our commitment to affordable housing in our community,” Plainsboro Mayor Peter Cantu said.
