Sam Boraie has been making a big impact on the community of New Brunswick, New Jersey, says this Yahoo.com article. As vice-president of Boraie Development, LLC, he has been instrumental in revitalizing the urban landscape of this city. From high-rise apartment buildings to beautiful housing communities, this development company has been building up neighborhoods with their real estate development projects for 30 years. Perhaps no project personifies this more than The Aspire, which according to the New York Times, offers 238 residential units with state-of-the-art amenities. They are known for their commercial developments as well, and this includes Albany Street Plaza, which is located right near the New Brunswick train station and offers 250,000 square feet of office space. Boraie Development also provides property management as well as real estate sales and marketing services to the people in New Brunswick.
While his position at Boraie Development enables Omar Boraie to give back to the community through urban rejuvenation, he also believes in giving back in a more direct way. He sits on the advisory board for the non-profit Elijah’s Promise. This charity was founded in 1989, and it runs a soup kitchen that feeds the poor and homeless. Additionally, it provides education and job training. It does this in keeping with their philosophy that by giving people the tools they need to feed themselves, no one in their community will go hungry. Their outreach and educational programs include Promise Culinary School, Promise Catering and Community Gardens.
At the age of 73, Sam Boraie can look back knowing that he has spent most of his life helping his community. As a trained chemist in Egypt, he has come a long way since he arrived at the shores of America in 1970. Whether as a businessman or a philanthropist, he has lead efforts that have improved the city of New Brunswick and have eased the suffering of its less fortunate residents. As vice-president of Boraie Development, he continues to build new developments that enhance this city and help it grow well into this century.
