Omar Boraie Brings Back the Dead

As the United States of America becomes increasingly hostile toward the richest people in our country, CEOs, corporate headhunters, presidents of universities, and nonprofit giants have become the focus of hatred and the objects of protest. While many of these entities deserve to be called greedy, this does not apply to Omar Boraie who has revived and saved New Brunswick, New Jersey from near destruction.

Omar Boraie has been working through his business affiliate, Boraie Development LLC, to revive an entire city so that it achieves the potential he always knew it had. He has accomplished this in several ways.

The first way that Omar Boraie began reviving the city was to focus on the family structure that made New Brunswick, New Jersey such a wonderful place. By allying himself with Provident Bank Foundation, he was able to go to the New Jersey Stage and offer an event that would bring families together for several nights of fun.

Throughout the summer, Omar Boraie provided seven free movie nights for families in the community to enjoy a Disney movie with one another. Over 7500 people came to one of those movie nights, and this has left a wonderful impact on the community.

The second way that Omar Boraie began reviving the city was to focus on keeping jobs in the area. At first, many businesses were leaving to get employment in other areas. Omar Boraie was able to convince them to stay in New Brunswick. Perhaps the biggest corporation that he got to stay was Johnson and Johnson. Once Johnson and Johnson decided to stay, the rest of the businesses followed after.

The third thing that Omar Boraie did to revive the city was create a coalition of the city’s main leaders. This coalition included the president of Rutgers University, the current city mayor, the head of New Brunswick Development Corporation, and the editor at New Brunswick Tomorrow. Together, they were able to paint the city in a positive and attractive light. Check out Central Jersey Working Moms to see more.

Lastly, Omar Boraie was able to develop real estate that would attract businesses and professionals. His first phase was to create thousands of feet for class A office space to convince doctors, lawyers, and small businesses to come to the area. The second phase was to provide them housing accommodations that would fit their quality of life. Much of this housing can be found in his Aspire building. You can visit his website boraie.com
