Omar Boraie is a visionary. For forty years he has seen the outstanding potential in New Brunswick. His latest investment is in the center of The Aspire. This city will house an incredibly deluxe residential, high rise building. This project has been his dream for decades and he is delighted it is coming to fruition.
Omar is the head of Boraie Development LLC, and admits this project has had disbelievers for many years. His desire was to be able to rebuild New Brunswick in the same manner as he saw in Europe when he was traveling as a scholar. He has said the area was terrible. Walking in the open anywhere on the street after four P.M. was simply not done. He knew then he could make this so much better, and his dream began.
Today, Omar has a gorgeous view from an office located on the eighth floor. Originally, the area consisted of twenty one buildings on the same block that were all crumbling. With foresight, Omar Boraie began buying all of these buildings. Once he acquired them all, his plan began. Although most thought he was insane, he was just a visionary well ahead of the time.

The first building was for office space, and was called Tower One. This building was built in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The second Tower, aptly named Tower Two, was constructed in 2003 and was built next to the first tower. Although the towers were an excellent beginning, Omar realized high quality residential space on about.me was desperately needed as well. His vision here was a deluxe building for condominiums. This building was indeed built, and was the tallest building in the city. Standing at twenty-five stories high, this building containing one-hundred-twenty-one units for residents. There was also massive space allotted for offices, retail businesses, an amazing garage for parking, and places outside for barbecues and even dog walking.
Now, finally, the people began to believe. Omar has publicly thanked so many people who did stand beside him and believed in him. He says he could not have accomplished on NYTimes what he did without them. He says they were responsible for bring in culture, theaters and hotels, even though people did not believe it was necessary.
