The Jia Chinatown Project is a completed 280 unit rental, mixed use project. Located at 639 N. Broadway, at the famed dragon arches, it is an important gateway project to a transitioning Chinatown. KBA obtained the original Master CUP, which encapsulates the full 13,803 square foot space; which spanned 4 restaurants and one off-site beer and wine venue with a tasting room. Entertainment rights were also obtained to public dancing, piano, a string musical quartet, karaoke and use of a DJ.  
 
Subsequently KBA was responsible for obtaining all land use approvals for an exciting new Chinatown addition: an 11,000 square foot food hall called Apiary. Apiary will offer multiple food options in an open floor plate marketplace, amid dramatic 17 foot high ceilings and a floor-to- ceiling glass storefront. The food hall CUP was obtained as part of the Master CUP Plan Approval. KBA has also nearly completed the Plan Check permitting work for this innovative marketplace use.
