Xiao Jin Yuan is a patient, determined man. The 54-year-old owner of the Urbana Landmark Hotel built his first hotel in Crescent City, Calif., over a decade ago on spectacular Pacific Ocean frontage. Doing so wasn’t easy. It took him more than three-and- a- half years to get the approval of the California Costal Commission, which tightly controls development along the California coastline.
