This is great info, and I just included it in Centerplace at Edison Community Blog@ http://centerplaceatedison.blogspot.com/
to benefit qualified families.
In general, new developments in NJ all have affordable housing requirement to qualify for state funding and comply certain law. It is very common.
The units thru affordable housing is normally "smaller" and "less amenities"; it just tries to give qualified families a chance to buy at nice new communities.
For example, extremely popular Starpoint at Piscataway http://starpointatpiscataway.blogspot.com/
when built dozen years ago also had that, and once in a while (like one or two a year), you see affordable housing unit at Starpoint came out for sale for very low price, but they NEVER impact the neighbor value there because those "cheaper units" are also smaller with less amenities. e.g. they do not have garage.
I would say, if you are qualified thru affordable housing for Centerplace at Edison, you should grab one, but keep in mind, there are also rules like you have to live there, you can not sell it for certain years, say, within 10 years ...etc.
One the other hand, if your family income is far exceed that, you should really try to get the nicest one that your family deserve. This place is going to be very very popular as you can see ... Why?
Next to it is Middlesex County College where Middlesex Academy of Science locate that won #1 in NJ Science League of Physics in 2007 over hundreds of ALL other NJ high schools.
Hey, this year, I just found out it also won #1 in NJ Science League of Biology in 2008 over hundreds of ALL other high school. East Brunswick High School is very good still, got #5 this year. Last year East Brunswick High got #1.
