Devco and the Heldrich Hotel Loan Repayment

There is much concern across the struggling communities of New Jersey regarding the repayment of development loans with one of those being a $20 million Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) loan provided to New Brunswick Development Corporation, or Devco. With a vision of urban redevelopment in New Brunswick, NJ, Devco has a history of bringing together both public and private funding to redevelop urban areas into profitable projects for the benefit of the communities. Devco was founded in the mid-1970’s and since then has overseen nearly $1.6 billion of investment in the New Brunswick area. This model has been replicated in Atlantic City and other areas hard-hit by the recent economic recession. This particular loan is for a project renovating the 235-room Heldrich hotel and conference center, which opened in 2007 as the recession hit, and has struggled to attract guests with only a 63.5 percent occupancy rate in 2015. Business has been so poor for the hotel that Devco was forced to provide an additional $776,000 to pay for necessary mattress and carpet replacement. Funding for the Heldrich project also included $70 million from municipal bonds alongside the CRDA amount. While $30 million has been repaid to the senior bond holders, this $20 million CRDA loan has been delinquent for years. Municipal lenders do not seem concerned, as local employment, a rise in real estate taxes, and local tourism due to the hotel have benefited New Brunswick.

Kyle Bass Predicts Financial Crisis in China

Kyle Bass, a hedge fund manager, the founder of Hayman Capital Management, and a onetime investment genius spoke to Wall Street Week’s Maria Bartiromo on his views on the upcoming presidential election and the general economy in 2016. According to Kyle, there’s a 40 to 50 percent chance of there being a minor recession next year.

Kyle says that Hillary Clinton will be the best president for the markets since she appears to be the sanest. He says that though he agrees with Donald Trump’s recession prediction but does not agree with the reasons Trump gives for the recession. The credit problem in Asia and slow global growth cannot cause a persistent recession in the United States.

According to Kyle Bass, the United States, negative interest rates should not worry people since it will be a matter of time and the problem will end. If banks continue to tax their client’s deposits, gold will take off since people will prefer investing their money in that form than keeping in the costly banks.

Speaking about Chinese markets slow down, Kyle says that China is experiencing some hard time. The 5.8 percent nominal GDP recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015 is the lowest GDP growth in 41 years. There has been a high rate of urban to rural migration with 5.8 million Chinese migrating, the largest reverse migration in 30 years.

Everything that predated the US financial crisis is currently happening in China and they are going to experience a similar crisis. However, this will not be the end of the world for China. The crisis will be something the country can get out of if necessary steps are taken early enough.

Kyle first came to the limelight and international headlines in 2006 when he correctly predicted the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis. He became famous for a while but has since lost his magic touch making bad investments and bad career alliances from time to time. There have been reports that Bass’ funds lost around 30 percent in 2014

Kyle’s alliance with Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of Argentina has seen him defend Argentina’s default on its sovereign debt. His shady ties with Erich Spangenberg saw them sue Pharmaceutical Companies leading to thousands of deaths but making profits for themselves.

Former NBA Great to Help Build Future Homes

For many of us getting to go to a professional sports game can be a real treat. Having the opportunity to see some of the best players in the world, whether its the NFL, NBA, or MLB. For some, that may be the most exposure you will ever have in coming into contact with that type of celebrity.  Learn more about Boraie Development: https://www.facebook.com/BoraieDev

However, as was read about on the New Jersey Stage, the Boraie Development LLC has been working with former NBA great Shaquille O’Neal to help invest in and build apartments in Atlantic City. This is a combination of two great teams coming together to help build the future.

The Boraie Development LLC specializes in developing and growing urban development, commercialization of areas that need attention, which specializes in property management and sales marketing for their projects.

Boraie works with some of the most talented architects to create ideal and contemporary developments. They also collaborate with top investment and financial firms so ensure they deliver the best client and customer service and meet expectations and deadlines.

The strength behind the culture and vision of Boraie’s success is because of founder and president Omar Boraie. He has been helping to reshape and rebuild communities for over four decades. He helped turn New Brunswick into a more family friendly town. The attitude and determination to make things better is what helps drive the culture and direction of Boraie Development LLC.

With that same drive and determination, Boraie Development LLC has been working with Shaq since 2013 to plan and develop the $61 million apartment complex called The Beach at South Inlet, which will be constructed near the Revel Casino.

The project has been in planning and development stages for a couple years now as the Redevelopment Authority have been unable to make a decision because of the local economy. Several local casinos have closed their doors in recent years, and this has given pause to financial institutions for ongoing development.

Some of those casualties of the economy include famous casinos like the Revel and Showboat. Even Trump’s Taj Mahal has been struggling and could follow the same path.

However, Boraie Development LLC has had the financial backing it needs and is ready to move the project forward, and is just waiting on the RDA’s approval. With a strong business partner like Shaquille O’Neal, it would be easy to have the investments you need to make the project move forward.
