The Visionary Omar Boraie has Seen The Potential Of New Brunswick for four decades

New Brunswick has spent the last decade in meeting the same challenges as other American cities: neglect, declining values of property and the growing number of immigrants. But, Omar Boraie now has a different vision for New Brunswick.
As his latest project is almost done ( a deluxe high-rise residential in the heart of the city known as ‘The Aspire’), Omar Boraie’s vision for New Brunswick is finally taking shape, and many people support him.
Omar Boraie is the patriarch and president of Boraie Development LLC, a privately held company in New Brunswick that has been doing business for 39 years. His dream was to rebuild New Bruncwick in the similar way he witnessed when he was traveling from Egypt to Europe as a scholar of chemistry.
New Brunswick was in an awful state in 1972. People were not allowed to go out and walk on the streets after 4 p.m. Many had also left the city for different reasons, and this is why Mr. Boraie wanted to do something really big for this city.
Since there were more than 20 dilapidated and vacant buildings, he decided to buy them all and do something about them. For instance, Albany Street Plaza Tower One building brought 250,000 square feet and a famous Class A office space. This happened in the 1980s and 1990s. Then in 2003 Tower One building added even more Class A office space. But , according to Omar Boraie, this was not enough. He thought that New Brunswick needed top-flight residential units ,so he envisioned something that would be in a New York style ( One Spring Street Condominium building ). The building is incredible . With 25 stories, 10, 000 square feet of retail, 40,000 square feet of office space, more than 120 residential units and 400-space garage , together with the space for barbequing, it represents the tallest building in New Brunswick.
People were very suspicious about this, they didn’t think Mr. Boraie would do this, since it was impossible to build such building at that time. However, the building was finished in 2007, and sold out in just two months. This was when people started to believe. Mr.Boraie said that other names were also important for this project : Johnson & Johnson, John Lynch, Mayor James Cahill, David Crabiel and many others.
All in all, this luxury building will bring its population back to the city. Furthermore, the culture offered here has attracted many doctors, teachers, lawyers and other professionals, and all this will help New Brunswick grow even more.

Josh Verne’s tips on how to become a good manager

– As a manager, you can either be a leader or a boss. A leader is different in that, he earns respect from his employees. Contrary to this, a boss demands to be respected. Respect is earned when the leader does what is in the best interest of the whole organization, considering the employees. A boss demands respect by doing only what is best for him. Verne advises managers to be leaders.

– Whereas successful managers look to achieve only win-win situations, the ones who fail mostly don’t mind acting on win-lose situations, provided the employees are on the losing side. A good manager knows that a win for the employees or society has a positive impact on the firm.

– To command authority without too much effort, a manager ought to listen more and talk little. The fewer the words one speaks, the more power they have. Good listeners have a good chance of being listened to.

– Your life shouldn’t only be revolved around your business. A good manager allocates time for everything, and strives to improve every aspect of his life. One may have a lot of money but lead a sad life, just because he doesn’t have stable relationships. All areas of life, including relationships and health, should be given the focus they need.
