What Can New Jersey Residents Expect from The Newly Established Shaq Towers and The Aspire

New Jersey’s skyline is changing and so is investor opinion of its real estate potential, thanks to Shaq O’Neal’s collaboration with Boraie development. The two have come up with industry and economy revitalization program that they hope will have more people interested in living and working in New Jersey.

In Newark and New Brunswick Cities that haven’t seen any new residential developments in years, the two have kickstarted luxurious developments aimed at spurring the real estate growth within the communities. Shaq O’Neal would start by establishing the One Rector Street condominiums in Newark while Boraie Development markets The Aspire apartment in New Brunswick. But what can residents in these cities expect from the two luxurious residences:

The Aspire

Smacked right at the heart of New Brunswick is the cities most luxurious mixed-use property. It consists of 238 spacious units in the form of Studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments as well over 10,000 square feet of retail space. The fact that it is situated deep in the city makes give it ease of access to different points in the city like eateries, entertainment joints, and shopping malls. More importantly, the live, work and play type of residence built and managed by Boraie development sits just a few steps from the city’s train station.

The One Rector Street

The One Rector Street apartment, fondly referred to as ‘Shaq Towers’ was developed by the NBA star and legend Shaq O’Neal in collaboration with Boraie development company. Tearing up Newark’s skyline, the block that features 168 apartments will be the first luxury residential property to be developed in the city in over five decades.

Shaq and Boraie company developers are confident that the building is just the first in a series of steps that will eventually change the Newark landscape and real estate narrative. To this end, the two have committed an additional $150 Million towards the development of yet another 350-unit luxury apartment in the city upon completion of Shaq Towers.

Larkin & Lacey

 #BlackLivesMatter

#BlackLivesMatter is an organizations that was founded in 2012 after the murder of Trayvon Martin by a white/white-passing man named George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was acquitted for the crime, which sparked outrage among many people, especially people in the black community. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/5-smart-ways-people-and-places-are-resisting-trumps-immigration-policies/ and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/

#BlackLivesMatter does not just focus on specific injustices done against black people, or black nationalist ideas that black people should support the black community by only doing things within the black community.

#BlackLivesMatter strives to create an inclusionary environment where the concerns of women and LGBTQ people are at the forefront.

Throughout the years, movements for black rights were dominated and lead by straight, cis-gender black men while black women and LGBTQ people were brushed off to the side.

Black Lives Matter strives to amend this issue by providing an organization about black rights that also stresses the importance and equality of women and LGBTQ people.

Some of their views and foci include:

The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund

  •  How the state is committing violence against blacks by keeping them in poverty and attempting to genocide them.
  • How the state is committing violence against black people by making efforts to assault children and destroy familial structures.
  •  How the state is committing violence in the form of 2.8 million black people being locked up in the United States.
  •  How Black women and girls are used as mere objects of negotiation during conflicts.
  •  How 500,000 black people are not having their concerns heard, and are not being provided with crucial services, due to the fact that they are undocumented immigrants.
  •  How the state is committing violence against blacks by using Euro-centrist and Darwinian-types of policies that go against the interests and rights of disabled blacks.

The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund, like #BlackLivesMatter, is an organization that supports a specific racial group and community of people, while also supporting various other causes.

As opposed to #BlackLivesMAtter, which supports issues surrounding the black community, the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund focuses on the Hispanic community. Just like #BlackLivesMatter, it focuses on LGBTQ rights and dialogue about various issues of discrimination.

The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund was founded the year after #BlackLivesMatter. It’s founders, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, founded the organization as a result of their civil rights being impeded upon by local authorities.

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Help Citizens with The Frontera Fund

Joe Arpaio was the Sheriff of Maricopa County for 24 years. Beginning in 1992, Arpaio went on a trail of terror. His has targeted nearly everyone in the community at some point: political opponents, the press, minorities, and immigrants. In 2007, he has a nationally publicized run-in with Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, two journalists in Arizona.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were using their newspaper the Phoenix New Times to expose the illegal actions of Arpaio to the world. Obviously, Arpaio didn’t want his dirty laundry in the public eye, so he sent his deputies to arrest Lacey and Larkin. This obvious attempt to silence the press, a violation of the first amendment, resulted in nearly 4 million dollars being awarded to Lacey and Larkin.

The two journalists have sold the Phoenix New Times and put the settlement money to good use. Lacey and Larkin have created The Frontera Fund and Front Page Confidential.

The Frontera Fund is their way to help the people that Arpaio targeted through out the years. Arpaio began to target Hispanics in 2005; he used Hispanics to try to make a name for himself. This is why The Frontera Fund is working with so many Hispanic-focused charities. They are trying to make amends for the horrible behavior of Joe Arpaio.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are not only working to correct Arpaio’s wrongs, they are using Front Page Confidential to prevent Arpaio from holding office again. Joe Arpaio is currently running for a Senate seat on Capitol Hill. If Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are successful, Joe Arpaio won’t even make it through the primaries.
