Latest Developments in Brunswick – Boraie

“Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel for Brunswick!” says an excited Omar Boraie, president Boraie Development Inc. “We are currently developing several projects bound to take the city to a whole new level.”

A Brief History of Brunswick

Before 1980, Brunswick faced many challenges among them neglect, a steep rise in its number of immigrants, low property values and slow rate of development on wsj.com. This led to investors fleeing the city in search of better pastures.

A major turning point for the city was in 1975 when Johnson & Johnson decided that it will hold on to it, come what may. Its rebound journey later began during the 1980’s.

Johnson & Johnson’s move inspired Omar Boraie to purchase neglected parcels of land on Albany Street. In 1988, he developed Albany Street Plaza Tower 1, which highly attracted lucrative businessmen looking for classy office space. In 2002, he developed Albany Street Plaza Tower II.

Later, there arose a need to provide convenient housing facilities for professionals who worked in both towers. Out of necessity, he built the one street condominium

It’s Present and Future

Rutgers, the New Brunswick Development Corp. (Devco), private firms, the mayor’s office and Boraie are all working towards remodeling the outlook of the city.

According to Wasseem Boraie, vice president Boraie Development Inc, It is similar to high-end accommodations in Manhattan. Its tenants get to live in a two bedroom for $2,800 a month.

In the next 12-18 months, it plans to offset a project involving a commercial site, close to the train station, on Albany Street. So far, this will be its third commercial building in Brunswick.
