Boraie Development has built a large number of luxury residential and commercial buildings over the years, mostly in and around New Brunswick.

Omar Boraie’s first building was the Albany Street Plaza Tower One. This building is comprised of 40,000 square feet of office space, 10,000 feet of retail, and topped with 121 residential units. This building was a symbol of his dedication in redeveloping the blighted downtown that was New Brunswick in the 1970’s. More recently he added Tower Two next to Tower One and added more needed quality office space to the city.
Omar has supported a large number of charities over the years. One of these would be Elijah’s Promise, a charity for which Mr. Boraie serves on the board of. He has donated money to this nonprofit in addition to help manage their decisions. Elijah’s Promise runs a culinary school to teach young people the profession, operates a soup kitchen for the homeless population in New Brunswick, runs a catering program that hires students that have completed the culinary school, and created a community garden in the city so that local residents can grow their own food.
