New Brunswick was once notorious for its dilapidated streets and buildings. It was so bad that people barely walked outside after 4 pm, and many decided to move altogether. Today, however, the city is undergoing a transformation that has seen the rise of deluxe residential areas thanks to the decades-old vision of Omar Boraie.
Who is Omar Boraie?
Omar Boraie is the head of Boraie Development, LLC. He is originally an Egyptian who schooled in Europe and settled in New Brunswick about 40 years ago. He says he fell in love with the city in spite of its deteriorating condition, and he desired to make it look as good as the high-end residential areas he had seen while studying in Europe. Today, at 72 years of age, Omar Boraie is one of the faces of the city’s transformation.
Transforming New Brunswick One Building at a Time
Omar began implementing his dream by buying old buildings and rebuilding. He began by building Tower One, a building that was constructed in the 1980s. He then bought Tower Two, a similar building that was constructed in 2003. He then tore down the buildings and in their space built luxurious residential houses.
His first residential building, Aspire, was the tallest in the city. It stands at 25 stories and contains 121 units. All the units are not residential houses, however, as he also included large and elegant office spaces and commercial units. The building also features a spacious garage for tenants to park their cars and an outdoor parlor for barbeques and walking dogs.
Today, Omar Brunswick is being credited for transforming the city one building at a time. He has held on to his dream for decades, and at 72 years of age, he is happy to see it come true. He says that the journey has just begun as he hopes to construct more buildings in the near future.
