According to Fundacity, Boraie Development was established in 1972 by Omar Boraie, an immigrant from Egypt. When he first arrived in New Brunswick he noted that the city was utterly deserted after 4 pm. It was also blighted with abandoned properties and dilapidated structures. He decided to found a property development company that would buy these buildings, level them, and put in towers that included residential, retail, and office space.
When Sam Boraie first started his company he notes that most people thought he was basically crazy to be doing what he was doing in New Brunswick. Omar, however, believed in the opportunity the city presented to him. His first tower, Albany Street Plaza Tower One, was completed in the 1990’s. His second building right next door to this one and called Tower Two was finished in 2003. Both buildings brought direly needed office space as well as places that people could live in and buy things at. There are now a lot of other new buildings near his and the area is now busy and populated long into the night.
