What we do

The Kingsley

acquisitions + development


We unlock unique, authentic spaces. Our team creatively invests in up-and-coming areas of cultural interest to craft experiences that set a new standard.

We have vast experience in ground-up development and re-development projects delivering award-winning results. Our team has completed a number of “value-add” acquisitions and projects, redevelopment of historic/vacant buildings in underutilized spaces, and ground-up development projects throughout the country.

We directly oversee all facets of the development process from acquisiton through stabilization. Our team is highly skilled at managing through the full development life cycle— from engineering, design, tenant approvals, permitting, financing, construction, and obtaining local-, state-, and federal-level incentives.

hospitality + destination retail


We start at the end. Wowing the end customer guides our experience-led approach to developing innovative retail spaces and consumer brands.

Elia Group has a collective entrepreneurial spirit that is a key pillar to creating opportunities. Through our expansive network and creative thinking, we’re able to find or create projects that others do not see. From acquisition to branding to interior design, we constantly innovate to generate impactful value for our partners, guests, clients, and communities.

public/private partnerships


We’re invested in revitalizing urban spaces. From parks to mixed-use developments, our team forges new paths to stimulate economic development. Working with our public, private, and philanthropic partners, we create warm and welcoming environments that authentically offer something for everyone that live, work, and play in the communities we serve.

operations + management


Iconic moments drive business. From coffee shops to fine-dining restaurants to nightclubs, we curate and manage global destinations that expand expectations and deliver our client’s bottom line.
