According to NJ Biz, the building is one of the developments done by the former NBA player since he took part in real estate development. During his recent interview, Shaquille O’Neal confessed that growing up in the 1970s at Newark was not easy. The only way that his family could keep him off the streets was by ushering him to the local Boys and Girls Club and the movie theatre that was nearby at that time. He rarely had a stable place and noted that any place that would keep him for three to four hours was just right if not enough for him. With his childhood memories very clear, O’Neal was happy to come back home and build a modern state of the art building in Newark. He is also glad of his partnership with Boraie Development not only to establish the Aspire Apartments but also in the construction of One Riverview.
Newark is also about to host its first downtown high-rise residential project, the construction of a 23-story building hosting 169-unit market rate apartment is underway. The apartment is called One Riverview and is located on Rector Street.
