YK America is proud to announce that the Chinese American Construction Professionals (CACP) awarded the Excellence in Development Award of 2018 to YK America Group.
The purpose of the CACP Awards is to recognize outstanding achievements in the construction industry exhibited by Chinese Americans. Besides the award given to YK America, architectural firms, interior design firms, builders and others also received awards. Andy Jiang, the President of CACP said, “The award ceremony is to recognize excellence in construction and development as an encouragement to the outstanding Chinese Americans in the field. Our association received nearly 100 projects. The projects were given points based on a given criteria, and in the end the awards were given to 18 projects. YK America’s Delano Marketplace was among those that were chosen.
Delano is the second largest city in Kern County, and is located at the northern region of Southern California. At 14.4 square miles, the city of Delano saw a dramatic increase in population from 38,800 in 2000 to 60,460 in 2015. The area is well known for its agricultural products such as grapes and mangos, with the famed “Wonderful Citrus” company producing the beloved mandarin oranges. As one of the fastest-growing areas in California, Delano is located between San Francisco and Fresno to the north and Bakersfield and Los Angeles to the south, and strategically located on State Route 99.
In 2008, YK America brought in the Delano Marketplace anchored by Walmart Supercenter, followed by Big 5 Sporting Good, Ross, Panda Express, Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Dollar Tree, GNC, UPS, Sally Beauty, etc. By creating over 3,000 jobs, the local unemployment rate decreased from 37.6% in 2009 to 8.9% in 2017.
In 2018, YK America opened two projects – the Hyatt Place Delano and the Maya Cinemas, two major projects for the city of Delano! The award ceremony took place on August 31 in Alhambra. The economic revitalization brought forth by YK’s projects was widely recognized by CACP!
Since 2009, YK America has synergized commercial real estate development with the EB-5 immigration through investment program. Besides creating jobs and tax revenues, it also became the ideal platform for foreign investment, making possible the American Dream for many people. It has maintained a 100% success rate in immigration approvals for the past decade.
Currently, YK has rolled out its 15thproject: the Turtle Creek Luxury Apartments in Riverside. We welcome your inquiry!
