When a community faces times of hardship and struggle, they will often look to a single leader to help them out of the mess they find themselves in. The community of New Brunswick, New Jersey began looking to Omar Boraie as the savior and leader of their city to bring them out of the devastation they found themselves in.
Omar Boraie has often been described by those who know him as a man with a kind heart who loves the city that he was born in. His compassion for the city is unmatched, and he has always desired to see the city reached the heights he knows is capable of. He has dedicated 40 years of his life to making New Brunswick, New Jersey into the metropolis that it is today.
According to Patch, Omar Boraie is so passionate about growing New Brunswick, New Jersey that he donated $150 million of his own net worth to help the city continue to grow. This donation has mainly been used to build residential and commercial areas so that professional families could relocate and find all they needed in the city.
NJbiz.com reports on how Omar Boraie began working on the four critical areas needed to turn New Brunswick around. Omar wanted to see New Brunswick become a place where parents wanted to raise their children, where businesses could not help but flock to, where local businesses help to drop the unemployment rate, and where the middle class was thriving.
He began improving the community by bringing several nonprofits together in a coalition. Together, they focused on library readings, free movie nights for the family, local parks within every 20-mile radius, and after-school programs the focus on the family.
Omar Boraie also focused on industry and business within New Brunswick. He took a considerable amount of time convincing Johnson and Johnson to stay in New Brunswick. Once this occurred, the economy was able to stabilize, and other businesses decided to stay. Check out his website boraie.com
Now that Johnson & Johnson committed to staying in New Jersey, Omar Boraie had a much easier time bringing the middle class to the area. He decided to build commercial office spaces inspired by New York styled towers. This class A office space, known as Albany Street Towers, made it easy for lawyers, doctors, counselors, and dentists to move to the city. He also provided them condo space, so they had a place to live.
