Boraie Development, LLC has been significantly influential in revitalizing New Brunswick, New Jersey,,and its surrounding communities. With a 30 year record in development, not only are they being highly sought out by New Jersey developers, but they seek to bring to communities together and move forward. A key player in making progress happen is Sam Boraie who serves as Vice President to the family real estate business.

One of the most recent accomplishments of Omar Boraie‘s son, Sam Boraie is The Aspire, a new luxury rental tower in New Brunswick that houses 121 residential units, 40,000 square feet of office space, 10,000 square feet of retail space, and an outdoor space for tenants and visitors to relax and enjoy some time outside. Recognized for its unique and modern appearance, according to the NY Times, The Aspire has caught the eye of many young and aspiring renters within the vicinity who have chosen the building for its trendy location, and in turn these renters have helped in the further developments of the city.

The positive effect of Boraie Development is not just present in the community of New Brunswick, but throughout the state of New Jersey says a review. Sam Boraie helped build Newark’s first high-rise residential project in over fifty years, by partnering with world renown basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal who also hails from Newark, in constructing the building. The structure, known as One Riverview at Rector Street, has paved the way for transforming its surrounding neighborhood.

Sam Boraie is heavily involved in the local community and well recognized charities such as Elijah’s Promise. Elijah’s Promise is a non-profit organization that provides meals to underprivileged people in addition to education and job training for the food industry. Sam Boraie serves as a board advisor to the organization and assists in making beneficial and progressive decisions.
