I have often heard from those in America, who are quite opinionated, that the rich 1% are selfish jerks that step on every common man to get to where they are. I am sure this can be characterized of at least some of them, but it cannot be applied to Omar Boraie who is like a father to the city of New Brunswick.
Omar Boraie has led to this cities resurrection through his Boraie Development company. He dreamed of helping New Brunswick flourish ever since he visited the influential cities on the continent of Europe. He visited places such as Munich, Berlin, London, Paris, and Sicily and saw how powerful these places were. He felt that he can make New Brunswick, New Jersey just as influential and powerful for the North East portion of the United States.
Omar Boraie set to work on the four pillars that make a strong society. He began by working with the community to make it more oriented towards families. One of the many things he did was provide social events for families to get to know one another. One of these events was hosted by the State Theater and was a summer of movie nights given to the public for free Omar Boraie paid the admission for 7500 families so that they could all get to know one another and begin working as a community to help New Brunswick become great.
According to NJBiz, Omar then began by making the job market in the area more stable. His first step to doing that was keeping Johnson and Johnson in the area. The second step to doing that was building commercial real estate that would attract factories so that they could employ a large portion of people.
Omar then looked through his Rolodex and began calling people who could unite together and help New Brunswick thrive. Eventually, he had a coalition of 20 people which included the President of Rutgers University, the city Mayor, and the editors of several newspapers. Check out Press of Atlantic City
Omar then focused the rest of his attention to bringing back a strong middle-class. He knew that the middle class was the backbone of any society. He wanted to target young professionals who are just starting their practice so he built upper-class office space, which normally they could not afford, was sold at a lower price. This was so enticing that hundreds of families moved to New Brunswick.
