Brazil is a land of opportunity for people who have enough base capital and motivation. The country is so spacious and has so much to offer. People who are minimally educated about Brazil might only think of it as a place where macaws fly around, tribal people live in tropical rainforests and other people live in crammed cities. When hearing about Brazil, images of Carnival celebrations and the statue of Jesus at Rio de Janeiro might come to a person’s head. However, there is more to this fascinating place than those things.
Brazil is a land where different ethnic and racial groups have settled. The concentration of people with certain ethnic and racial backgrounds is highly dependent on the neighborhood and region. For example, Gramado is in the southern portion of the country. It is a place where many Italian and German immigrants raised families. As a result, there is a sizable population of people in that city with those backgrounds. The city’s architecture is reminiscent of Germany and Italy. When you do a Google Image search of the city, you see European style buildings and images of young people in ethnic German costumes with beers in their hands. Guilherme Paulus, the leader of a tour operator company, made sure to build a hotel in this city so that people from far away could experience the architecture and interesting culture of this area.
Guilherme Paulus also built a hotel in Natal, a city that is in the northeastern portion of the country. Northern Brazil is generally hotter and browner than the south of the country. This creates an environment where people like Guilherme Paulus have the opportunity to create a large selection of tourism services and choices for clients. Guilherme Paulus has really helped Brazil live up to its potential and put its talents to good use.

One Rector Street in Newark, NJ is now open for renting and it’s the first high rise building Newark has seen built in 50 years. Boraie Development was the main planner and capital holder for this property, but they also worked with several private contractors and city leaders who subsidized the project. But one other famous person who partnered with Boraie Development in this property investment was Shaquille O’Neal, the longtime NBA star. O’Neal grew up in Newark and had always considered returning to it at the end of his MBA career to help the community out. He bought a small portion of the shares in One Rector Street and even told reporters at the opening that he’s considering moving into the top floor. Upon hearing that, some in the crowd started naming the property Shaq Tower.
Boraie Development is a company who has worked hard to spur New Jersey’s real estate industry, and they’ve worked with commercial banks, public fund managers and private contractors in each project. Omar Boraie decided to start the company over 40 years ago after relocating to New Brunswick, NJ to teach chemistry at Rutgers. He saw a lot of empty building lots in the city that he decided to buy, and he told some development groups that he was going to rebuild the city. Most told him he couldn’t do it, but Boraie started having buildings completed on his properties anyway. It was the Albany Street tower one that was finished first, and the plaza was completed with tower two in 2003. That was the start of of Boraie Development’s portfolio becoming successful. You can check out pressofatlanticcity.com for more details.
High rise buildings were not popular at the time in New Jersey when Boraie Development first decided to build one at One Spring Street. But that would change when this property was finished as all 25 stories were completely rented out. After that happened, Boraie Development became convinced they could continue bringing more high rises to the city, so they added The Aspire near the New Brunswick metro station and One Rector Street followed. Also built in New Brunswick and Newark were the Estates at Waverly Place, the CITYPLEX 12 area and the Milltown Ford Avenue housing. Omar Boraie is mostly retired today with his sons Wasseem and Sam managing most of the company’s decisions now, but he was recently honored with the Omar Boraie Chair at Rutgers University’s genomics science department for a grant he gave to it.
