Omar Boraie now works with members of his family to bring real estate development success to many different areas of New Jersey, but also looks to the past to see just how far his work has taken him. Boraie began looking to buy real estate in the Aubrey Street area of downtown New Brunswick and purchased 21 lots before bringing his unique vision of an office tower with 250,000 square feet of what he describes as class A space. Omar Boraie has faced local government officials on who do not share his vision for the future, which includes his creation of a large residential and retail tower known as the One Spring Street Condominium.

Boraie has a vision that sees him look to bring a little New York style to the many different buildings and areas he has developed over his long career, which he feels is far from over as he sets his sights on Atlantic City’s many real estate development options. Boraie is not looking to take all the credit for the development of New Brunswick for himself, but instead looks to others who brought live theater and high quality restaurants on to the area to aid in creating a culturally diverse city all residents can be proud of.
