NEWARK, N.J. — Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal is opening a highrise apartment complex in New Jersey’s largest city.
O’Neal was joined by city and state officials in Newark recently for a news conference to discuss the project.
The Newark native partnered with New Brunswick-based Boraie Development and Goldman Sachs to build the $79-million complex.
The 22-storey tower will house 168 units. It sits near the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
O’Neal says he wants to invest in things that make a difference in the city.
O’Neal and Boraie Development also have a $150 million apartment complex in Newark in the works.
The highrise is scheduled to open by the end of the year.
