Lawrenceville, NJ (October 15, 2019) – Community Investment Strategies, Inc. (CIS) is

pleased to announce the Grand Opening of The Place at Plainsboro, a unique, sustainable new residential community in a fabulous location. This stunning property represents the flagship in the company's new series of "The Place" affordable properties.

"The Place at Plainsboro introduces a new branded paradigm within the CIS portfolio," Christiana Foglio, President, notes. "Private and effortlessly elegant, this collection of 70 spacious new 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom residences offer the look, quality, and lifestyle of market rate housing."

A community filled with "firsts," The Place at Plainsboro stands on the cutting edge of design and functionality. It's the first CIS community that meets Enterprise Green Community (EGC) standards, demonstrating the company's commitment to environmentally sound standards and practices.

"We employ sustainable materials, techniques, and energy-efficient appliances and fixtures," Ms. Foglio elaborates, "but more than that, we engage tenants in sustainable lifestyle practices with a 700 square-foot community garden, and other fun, incentivized tenant engagements."

The Place at Plainsboro is set in a vibrant town where history and natural beauty meet the future. Conveniently located on 10 acres along Dey Road, the property is near parks, museums, and historic destinations—notably Plainsboro Preserve, whose 1,000 acres of pristine parkland offer a spectacular lake and nature trails. The community is just 2.8 miles from Penn Medicine/Princeton Health Medical Center; 3.6 miles from Princeton Junction Train Station; 5 miles from Princeton University; and 15 minutes from Quaker Bridge Mall. Residents love the fact that The Place at Plainsboro is part of the outstanding West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District.

The Place at Plainsboro offers residences in 9 buildings ranging from 675- to 1265- square feet. Elegant stone exteriors offer the ambience of European townhouses, and each apartment has a separate entrance for maximum privacy. There is an attractive clubhouse with a social room and catering kitchen—a great setting for community events, celebrations, summer reading groups, and computer training. There is also an outdoor Children's Playground.

Residences offer gracious living areas finished with contemporary flooring and designer lighting. Kitchens feature Energy Star® certified refrigerators, stovetops, ovens, and dishwashers; plus a full-size washer and dryer. Baths offer porcelain tiling and sleek decorator fixtures. Three-bedroom residences have grand master suites with private baths. Also discover high efficiency HVAC systems, high speed cable and Internet access. Each home has an individual, tankless water heater; as well as pre-wiring for Cable, Internet, and phone.

There is a full-time Property Management office, a live-in Superintendent, 24/7 emergency maintenance, and a fire suppression system. The community is smoke- and pet-free; and parking is ample.

"The Place at Plainsboro was built in close partnership with Plainsboro Township, Boston Capital, and TD Bank," Ms. Foglio added. "We are delighted to have them join us in celebrating The Place collection, and look forward to completing the next in this extraordinary series."
