Omar Boraie is like the tender-hearted father of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Through the compassion he instilled into Boraie Development LLC, the New Jersey city is thriving today. Omar Boraie had it as his dream to see New Brunswick become a bustling economic center just like the great cities in Europe. It took him over four decades of hard work to make it happen, but New Brunswick is a hotbed of economic activity today because of his commitment.
Boraie Development LLC has been reported as one of the largest financial donors in the city of New Brunswick. Omar Boraie tried his best to keep it a secret, but NJbiz.com was able to secure his donation records. They discovered that Omar Boraie gave over $150 million in the last ten years to this magnificent city. That money was earmarked to the city council to be used to rebuild the residential and commercial areas of the city.
NJbiz.com reports that Omar Boraie worked through Boraie Development LLC to develop a four-part plan that would bring New Brunswick to new heights. The first part of his plan was to help New Brunswick become a place families wanted to stay. The second part of his plan was to convince current employers to stay in the city. The third part of his plan was to bring new jobs to the area. The last part of his plan was to bring back the middle-class.
According to NY Times, Omar Boraie formed an alliance with the State Theater to begin hosting family events in the city. Omar Boraie donated enough money that the State Theater was able to host seven Disney movie nights free for the community. These movies included Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and the Lion King. The State Theater reported in an article on the New Jersey Stage that over 7,500 people were in attendance and all were begging to make this an annual thing.
Omar Boraie implemented the second part of his plan by sitting down the Johnson and Johnson. They were the big factory in town and everything hinged on them staying. Omar Boraie was able to convince them it was in their best interest to stay in New Brunswick.
Omar Boraie then implemented both the third and fourth part of his plan in a single stroke by building commercial and residential building that were equivalent to the upper class lifestyle but for a middle-class price.
