Sam Boraie Continues to Focus on Revitalizing New Jersey’s Cities and Charity

Posted on by

Real estate businessman Sam Boraie is continuing their family tradition of revitalizing New Jersey’s cities. Sam Boraie is one of the key leaders of Boraie Development, a firm founded by Omar Boraie, his father. Sam Boraie has been involved in their own family business for many years. Sam’s main focus over the years has been finding new development targets, and he is currently one of the many vice presidents in this organization. Other major leaders in this business include his younger sister, older brother, and several other family members. Furthermore, Sam Boraie is the contact person for the current development sites and building acquisitions, and that includes construction of that his father purchased in New Brunswick through their family business Boraie Development.

Boraie Development is a leading development company in the U.S. The New Jersey-based firm has put a significant amount of their resources in New Brunswick and has already come up with a comprehensive plan to revitalize this city completely. By now, they have developed many facilities that are now luring many small businesses and individuals to the city. But these projects are just the start of the firm’s plans for revitalizing the city.

Sam’s father made up his mind that buildings along the main artery in the city of Jersey would make the best residential and commercial sites. Sam Boraie opened many first-class office buildings. One of them is Albany Street Plaza Tower One that he opened in 1988. The other is Albany Street Plaza Tower Two in 2003. After attracting experts to New Brunswick, Omar Boraie developed One Spring Street condominiums to cater for the housing needs of the experts building Albany Street Towers.

While Sam dedicates a lot of his time to the family business, he is a key stakeholder in several charitable causes such as the State Theatre of New Jersey.

As a community-minded philanthropist, Sam Boraie is both a trustee of the State Theater in New Brunswick and a great supporter of the theater’s artistic and educational programs. At the State Theatre Benedict Gala in 2014, where Sam was present, their development company was recognized as a corporate honoree. Sam serves on the board of trustees together with several other businesspersons. The State Theatre puts on many different productions annually in New Brunswick and New Jersey. This organization depends mainly on charitable donations, a significant portion of which comes from Sam Boraie himself, other members of the Boraie family, or the development firm.

Sam is also involved with a charitable organization that strives to fight and defeat poverty particularly in and around communities in New Jersey, Elijah’s Promise. The top objectives of this organization include preventing hunger, empowering people to get reliable and sustainable employment opportunities, creating businesses that promote social benefits and providing hygienic and nutritious foods. Sam Boraie also serves on the board of directors of Elijah’s Promise and takes part fully in the planning for future projects. Sam’s efforts to improve people’s lives is already bearing fruit.

All of this possible with a degree in Technical Engineering. Bonar is also the owner of the Bellamy’s restaurant chain that is based in San Diego. This amazing man’s resume does not stop there. He has also worked for Trucept, Inc. and The Amanda Co., Inc.

Brian’s strong passion for design has lead him into many companies that have only enhanced his professional career. There are a number of awards that Brian has received throughout the expanse of his career and I am sure there are more to come.

There has not been an endeavor that he has walked away from and he tackles them with such great spirit and professional grace. For example, he worked within Delrada Financial Corporation, Trucept Inc., and the Bellamy’s restaurants which have all flourished to extreme heights.

Going through this man’s lengthy resume you begin to realize that this man has set out and stepped into many endeavors. The most impressive would have to be Bellamy’s restaurants.

When you see that his career path has been consistently working in business and technology, it is hard to see that he would have the time to step into the restaurant business. Not only has he turned a restaurant around, but he has taken that restaurant and made it into a huge sensation that is well loved in San Diego.

They serve high-end cuisine that is sought after by so many tourists and many regulars as well.
