Omar Boraie is an Egyptian immigrant who moved to New Brunswick 40 years ago with the objective of attaining his Ph.D. in Chemistry. However, while in New Brunswick, he was inspired to get into the real estate sector. He did not hesitate and quickly got into the business.
In 1975, when New Brunswick was not doing too well as an urban city, Johnson & Johnson committed themselves to staying in the city. Omar Boraie then decided to take the opportunity and began to purchase plots and neglected structures along Albany Street. By 1988, Omar opened Albany Street Plaza Tower One offering first class offices to the residents. In 2007, he put up Albany Street Plaza Tower Two and quickly, the One Spring Street condominium followed.

The One Spring Street condominium had the capacity of 120 apartments of different sizes on about.me. These apartments were; one, two or three bedrooms. Each of them had floor-to-ceiling windows as well as full balconies. Most of the apartments are two-bedroom units and had a variety of designs with a price range between $400,000 to almost $500,000. From this moment to the current state, Boraie Development has dedicated itself to taking up underutilized plots and buildings and turning them into good properties that provide adequate housing and office space.

Additionally, he would renovate the students’ hostel to suit a capacity of up to 400 students. And , sure enough, he did it.
