Luxury Apartment Complex Offers Affordable Housing for Veterans

Fairway Towne Center For RentOne-of-a-Kind Program Salutes the Service of those who have Sacrificed

PISCATAWAY, NJ – July 20, 2012 – Veterans groups are saluting an unprecedented initiative from a Piscataway-based developer to slash rents for ex-soldiers who opt to live in a luxury apartment complex now under construction on Stelton Road.

 “Villas at Piscataway,” developed by Edgewood Properties, now has 22 one- and two-bedroom apartments with rents 30 percent lower than o ther units in the complex. These units are reserved for veterans and their families.

 “The cost of living in New Jersey has gotten to the point where veterans can’t afford to live here,” said Jack Morris, president of Edgewood Properties. “We expect these men and women to sacrifice their lives for us. But when they return, there is no decent place for them to live. It’s offensive; we are doing our part to change that.”

 When the Villas at Piscataway is built out by 2015, there will be a total of 88 units reserved for veterans, out of the 166 units planned. Each of the units will have all the amenities of new construction, including loft-like ceilings, walk-in closets, and deluxe kitchens. Veterans will have access to a clubhouse, swimming pool and o ther amenities.  Morris said there are specific plans for the clubhouse to host veterans’ meetings and speakers. He also envisions the clubhouse can host informational fairs and exhibits, in which veterans can easily link with service providers, as well as officials from the Veterans Administration.

 Jack Fanous, executive director of the GI Go Fund in Newark, which provides a host of services to returning veterans, said he has never before heard of a developer willing to provide affordable housing to returning soldiers.

 “It is amazing that the owner of this project is willing to do this without being pushed and prodded,” Fanous said. “It’s actually pretty incredible when you think about it. I’ve never seen this done before. Wow.”

 Fanous said affordable housing is one of the three most significant issues facing veterans returning from duty; the o ther two are finding a job and securing benefits through the federal Veterans Administration.  “This developer is offering brand-new housing to veterans at an affordable rate,” Fanous said. “That simply doesn’t happen.”

 Piscataway Mayor Brian Wahler noted there is no one more deserving of a break than veterans - both men and women – who step up to the plate, sometimes many more times than once, to make sure all of our citizens remain safe and secure.

 “Offering affordable housing to veterans at the “Villas at Piscataway” is a unique opportunity to let our veterans know, in a tangible way, how much their service is long-remembered and much-appreciated,” Wahler said.

Malaysia tour packages Yes No   Travel Tips To Be Considered By Everyone

Many people know that traveling is not very expensive, but don't know where to get started. This article has the information you need to make sure your next trip goes smoothly.

Calling a family or friend when you leave and arrive on a trip isn't just for kids. It is a good way to put them at ease, and also to make sure that if something goes wrong on your trip, someone will know about it quicker. If you have not called by a certain time, and they cannot reach you, this person will be able to take appropriate actions to find you or find out what happened.

online marketing company in pune Yes No   Obviously, this would end up attracting a lot of customers. If the website is dedicated to a particular company, this would obvious end up as a mass promotion for the brand and would reach the households of many. When a website attains a higher rank, it would appear on the top of the page when searched using the search engine.

google play gift card codes generator 02 14,2017 (04:06)  
google play gift card codes Yes No   I have searched the internet trying to find a way to freely get google play gift card codes because I know there's nothing impossible when it comes to the technology. I found several website asking me to download a particular program, others asking for my email and password which I gave and in the end I got nothing. With this urge I contacted my friend who studied computer science and ask him if he could write a program to bridge google fire wall and give the community free play store codes for you to redeem. Now am so happy that the google play store gift card online codes generator works perfectly well just like I wanted it to. You can only generate once code a day, per account (your google account).
