We Are

Founded in 2003 by Kylie Burton, KaidCo. is a multi-faceted development company specializing in hospitality development projects & operations throughout North America & Australia.  KaidCo. has a reputation for attaching innovative hospitality concepts & strategies to the fundamental human need to come together, connect & be inspired.


We identify & add value through specialized redevelopment & deep repositioning of existing, under-utilized real estate, mixed-use & hospitality forward businesses.  We work with investment groups, developers & asset owners to oversee the creation & execution of each project.  As a female led development team, we understand the intricate nuances of space, hospitality & people.  Our systematic approach, creative outlook, strong business acumen & in depth project modelling brings to light a unique vision, economic performance criteria & market understanding to create relevant concepts, spaces & businesses that enhance building typology, user experience, feasibility & performance. 


We’re driven by a deep curiosity of the world. This keeps us open to possibilities—for our partners, projects & ourselves.”- Kylie Burton 




On behalf of our stakeholders & partners, KaidCo. works to acquire, entitle & develop new & existing assets with innovative, hospitality forward brands & owner-operated concepts.  Our growing portfolio of brands & properties is centred around definitive third spaces, including boutique hotels, wellness retreats, shared workspaces, culinary programs & membership platforms in & around the Pacific Ocean.  

KaidCo.’s development division & its first proprietary brand, private club Sora was developed in 2016, followed by two boutique accommodation brands Venice Beach Abodes & Cardero Abodes in 2018.  We are currently working on new hotel, creative office, corporate retreat & culinary developments scheduled to launch in Vancouver, California & Mexico in 2021 & 2022 respectively. 

It’s about observing a situation – a need, process, objective or place – and believing it can be better.” - Kylie Burton




KaidCo. Studio is the in-house creative engine behind each of our proprietary projects, as well as a number of real estate & hospitality clients that we love to work with.  We work seamlessly to maintain project integrity, thoughtful & relevant creativity & to outpace project milestones in a competitive real estate & industry landscape. 

Our team works with a vast network of preferred consultants, partnering studios & collaborators across every aspect of hospitality, design, development, brand & real estate.  We value the strength of our relationships & understand that they allow us to deliver diverse, innovative & controlled work environments for each of our projects, stakeholders & clients alike.

Alone we can do so little.  Together, we can do so much." - Helen Keller
