Description: Excelsis Development has been active in urban renewal throughout the country, and has a reputation for convincing people to sell their property for redevelopment. In Seattle it has recently taken on responsibility for the Chinatown "revitalization". Its CEO, Chad Evanston Thurgood, Esq., actually moved into Seattle to oversee the development personally. He has already bought out 15% of Chinatown, and has made offers on much of the rest. Key properties in the zone of revitalization that have refused to sell are finding themselves beset by lawsuits, civil inspections, code violations, and tax audits. In certain cases, the Zhao family has noted increased spirit activity in regions under dispute, but of course this must be a coincidence.
