- O’Neal entered into a partnership with Boraie Development to ensure the success of this project. Shaq O’Neal was particularly motivated to see this project through because he comes from Newark, and he wanted to do something big for his home. Besides the desire to do something for his home, Mr. O’Neil also joined the project because The Aspire is the city’s third-tallest structure.
- O’Neal ventured into real estate development after retiring from his successful NBA career. After the retirement, he came into partnership with Boraie, a firm that has proved successful in its real estate ventures. The former NBA player considers this real estate company as the ideal teammate because it has done a lot to ensure the success of the projects. Shaquille O’Neal went for the project because he believes in the city. In fact, he said he was not in it for the money.
