First Phase of Affordable Apartments Grand Open at Premier Development’s Sunnymeade Run in Somerset County

Sunnymeade Ribbon CuttingA prominent real estate developer that has helped fulfill the need for low and moderate-income housing throughout central New Jersey has brought to market new affordable rental homes in Somerset County, N.J.

Premier Development, which has previously introduced affordable housing for Military veterans at Stonebridge at Raritan, seniors at Summerfields in Franklin Township and other communities, has launched leasing for the first phase of affordable rentals at Sunnymeade Run, a new collection of 383 apartments located at 110 Falcon Road in the Town of Hillsborough.

Demand has been strong for the one-, two- and three-bedroom homes which provide high-quality apartment living to low-and moderate-income residents of Somerset County.   Leasing for the rentals is being handled by the Central Jersey Housing Resource Center (CJHRC), a 501 (c) non-profit organization which provides housing counseling, information and referral services.

Designed to blend harmoniously with the 131 market-rate rental townhomes at Sunnymeade Run, the affordable apartments feature many similar high-end interior finishes, such as hardwood flooring and designer ceramic tile in bathrooms and kitchens.  Additional attractive features include maple cabinets, granite countertops, full size washer and dryer, GE appliances and central heating and air conditioning.

All homes are Energy-star certified with energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment, appliances and features to provide greater savings, a considerable advantage for budget restricted households.

“Affordable housing is a vital component of building a greater community in central New Jersey,” says Andy Nowack, Community Builder for Premier Development.  “Sunnymeade Run was conceptualized to include an affordable component that is durable, modern, energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing.  This neighborhood is creating a new standard by providing the working class residents of Somerset County an opportunity to live in a brand new community with stylish homes and a full roster of recreational amenities.

“We’re proud to work with the various local, county and state agencies involved in the planning and introduction of these homes and help fulfill the housing needs for this area’s low and moderate-income individuals and families.”

Priced in accordance with New Jersey affordable housing guidelines, homes in the initial offering at Sunnymeade Run are available with immediate occupancy.  In all, the community will feature a total of 122 affordable rentals.  The balance of the apartments – which are spread throughout the neighborhood — are expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

Residents of the affordable apartments will have full access to the social and recreational facilities at Sunnymeade Run, including a 5,000 square-foot state-of-the-art clubhouse which recently debuted.  The fully-equipped facility features a large fitness area, club room, business center, lawn recreation field and playground and sparkling outdoor pool and sundeck.

Sunnymeade Run is conveniently located near central New Jersey’s work centers and a short trip away from Princeton and Somerville.  The community is surrounded by a network of major highways including Routes 206 and 287 providing easy access to the major business centers of northern New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York City just 50 miles away.

Named one of Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live, Hillsborough also provides a wealth of cultural, entertainment and recreational activities within its borders.  The Township is home to Duke Farms, the Royce Brook Golf Club and Neshanic Valley Golf Course and countless parks and recreation centers.  Shopping is also available within the township at Nelson’s Corner and the Hillsborough Promenade or at the nearby Bridgewater Mall, as well as boutique shopping in Princeton.
