Newark, New Jersey has done a serious turn around since economically hard times with several new projects in the works, according to a NJBIZ article. During the Newark CRE Summit, the city’s economic improvements over the years was highlighted. Real estate and industry leaders discussed ongoing projects as well as where they hope the city to be developmentally in the future.
Among the top professionals is Wasseem Boraie, vice president of Boraie Development. Boraie attributes the turnaround in Newark to several smaller projects going on that are, in turn, attracting more developers to consider the area. According to him, in the past, city officials had focused too much on getting one big development hoping a “Big Bang” would help the city get the momentum it needed; however, Boraie says it was a foolish thought, and it is better to have several smaller, more meaningful projects in the works. The ultimate hope of Newark is to attract contractors and investors who have sought opportunities in Manhattan.
