According to the news website nj.com, basketball legend Shaquille ONeal returned to Newark, his hometown to co-host a 3-on-3 basketball tournament on Broad Street, just in front of City Hall. Despite leaving the city for his basketball career, the star player has been actively involved in his hometown affairs. In 2012, in conjunction with the Brunswick-based Boraie Development LLC, ONeal was instrumental in the opening of Cityplex Movie Theater. In 2013, Shaquille, again in partnership with Boraie broke ground on The Aspire New Brunswick. This is the first high-rise development in Newark in half a century.
The Aspire New Brunswick, a 17-story high rise features 238 spacious luxury units. These are either One-bedroom and Two-bedroom apartments or well-appointed studios. This development will ensure New Jersey residents enjoy the lifestyle they deserve. Residents will be treated to unparalleled amenities like central New Jerseys most vibrant restaurant. An on-site maintenance and management as well as doorman services, 24 hours a day are some of the services to be enjoyed by the residents. There is also direct elevator service from the garage to the lobby.
These residences are built with a variety of the designs as well as the finishes. Some units feature 9- to 10-foot ceilings, private terraces as well as balconies. Hardwood floors characterize the living areas, wall-to-wall carpeting is done in the bedrooms as well as having oversized windows overlooking the downtown. These are features that are employed in all the units.
Boraie development has been in existence for over three years. Perhaps their long stay in the real estate industry is what convinced Mr. ONeal to partner with them. Or could it be the fact that they have developed over a million square feet of property in New Jersey, both commercial and residential? That is a detail we may never find out but what we know for sure is Boraie Development have what it takes to deliver.
