New Jersey has had a bad reputation in the past and this is often because the media only shows people from New Jersey that talk and act like Fran Drescher. Others have even labeled this state as “Dirty Jersey” and believe what they see when watching infamous reality shows like Real Housewives of New Jersey or Jersey Shore, which do nothing but reinforce this false belief. In addition, cities like Atlantic City and Newark have taken punishment because of this negative view of the state.
Thanks to Sam Boraie and his real estate development company, Boraie Development LLC, the days of dirty Jersey are gone and life in the Garden State is getting better by the day. This is because Sam has held on to a vision to create a better New Jersey and he has already started with projects in both cities that will transform the landscape and promote prosperity and changed attitudes.
Launched in Newark, Cityplex 12 is part of Sam’s vision to revitalize Newark. This is the first urban movie theater concept that was entirely derived from private ownership. In partnership with NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal and Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group, Sam has already taken steps to make Newark a better place for people to live with this project which was a renovation of a 4-acre parcel into a state-of-the-art retail destination.
It includes 12 screens that provide 3-D and digital quality for Newark moviegoers. Best of all, this project is a part of Sam’s vision to improve the city of Newark one project at a time. This was done since it also served as a catalyst project which spurred over $200 million future development for Newark’s Springfield Avenue Corridor.
Changing Downtown Newark Forever
The partnership with Shaquille O’Neal did not stop with Cineplex 12. Since the NBA star was born in Newark and spent most of his childhood there, he shares the same vision as Sam to create a better city and eliminate the bad reputation it had before; especially in the city’s downtown area. This was done with the groundbreaking of a 23-story, 169-unit apartment building on Rector Street.
This partnership was the first of its kind in 50 years which took a very run-down historical building and transformed it to create growth in residential investment in the city of Newark. This building now stands as a powerful symbol for the city’s future and follows Sam’s vision to make Newark a better place for urban living.
Atlantic City Gets Rejuvenated
Much like Newark, Atlantic City also needed rejuvenation and rebuilding. Sam made this happen with a groundbreaking on his other latest project: The Beach at South Inlet. Located just steps away from the boardwalk and the Atlantic Ocean, this 250 residential unit project has changed the landscape of the South Inlet section of Atlantic City to provide exceptional urban living with luxurious amenities.

This renowned developer has taken a personal responsibility to erase the stereotypes and negative views of his beloved state through entrepreneurial and innovative approaches that will not only develop better urban communities and spur new economic growth in New Jersey, but also improve the lives of thousands of New Jersey residents.
