New Brunswick during the 1970s – employers felt the crunch of fiscal issues, taking their businesses to where land and labor were less expensive, leaving behind a scenery of many empty, rundown buildings. Today is a whole new picture, thanks to what Omar Boraie started over four decades ago.

The vision for a restored New Brunswick keeps moving forward, as Sam Boraie, along with his siblings, helps to keep his father’s company, Boraie Development, in line with sustaining and creating new buildings. According to NJ Biz, these buildings not only house various companies, but also residential units. The revitalization project goes beyond what New Brunswick had in the past as now employers and those they employ can reside in closer proximity to one another. Imagine no more gridlock.

Sam states that Boraie Development has more plans for the long haul. For New Jersey to significantly rise from under, Boraie Development has collaborated with those interested in seeing these developmental processes continue. Additionally, Sam’s company goes through a tremendous amount of marketing strategies to influence other investors from New York to keep projects going: one celebrity who took the bait was Shaquille O’Neal.
