Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

New Brunswick and its residents owe a ton of gratitude to the visionary and altruist leader, Omar Boraie. Forty years ago, Omar set out on a quest to transform the skyline of this American city into something spectacular. For decades, New Brunswick had been on a downward spiral and, the town became a ghost town after people left their offices in the evening.

Tower One is Born

According to the blog Central Jersey Working Moms, Omar’s first agenda once settled in was to secure an office space. The developer ended up owning the building, Tower One which housed his office and, the entire block eventually. By 2003, Mr. Boraie had bought over 20 high rises. Now the real work envisioned by Omar finally commenced.

Most of the high rise properties acquired by Mr. Boraie’s company were in derelict states. Omar realized that to attract clientele, then, hard work needed to take place to improve the quality of the residences.

Welcome to New Brunswick 2.0

Omar Boraie went back to the drawing board, with his experts, and, came up with new architectural plans. The infrastructure of the block got a massive overhaul. Tarmacked dog walks and small parks complete with benches got introduced. Affordable office spaces and retail spaces emerged to cater to the business community interested in calling New Brunswick home.

Critics and Naysayers

In the beginning, there were quite a large number of naysayers and critics to the ambitious projects by Omar Boraie. Many experts rubbished the claims by the immigrant from Egypt about being able to breathe new life into the desolate and stinking hell hole, Brunswick had become by the 80’s. Today, however, Omar proved to everyone what is possible with the right attitude and determination.

About Omar Boraie

Omar, 72, is a highly successful property developer living and working in New Brunswick. His ancestral roots trace to the land of the Pharaohs, Egypt. As a student, he had a chance to tour the European continent and behold all of its majestic sights and sounds. Later when he relocated to America, he got a rude shock upon discovering how certain areas got neglected. The buildings in places like New Brunswick were in dire need of an expert retouch to make them comfortable to the tenants. It would take Mr. Omar 40 years to achieve just that.
