Kyle Moran ­– A Perfect Day in Bonita Springs

When you become part of the fabric of a community, it’s only natural to be invested in its future. As the principal of Moran Kennedy LLC, an integrated real estate development company, Kyle Moran is focused on revitalizing local businesses and residences in downtown Bonita Springs.

“It’s an exciting, vibrant place at all hours of the day,” Moran says. “It’s a really special place, and we’re working on a number of projects to continue to add layers to the beautiful complexity of downtown Bonita Springs.”

Home to popular beaches, the McSwain Home and the 3-acre Wonder Gardens, Bonita Springs has long been on the radar for locals and visitors alike. His goal is to build upon that momentum, especially in its downtown area. “People come in droves [for events and attractions], and we’re working on bringing in more restaurants so that everyone has great gathering spaces in our community.”

He notes how easy it already is to create a perfect #MyFortMyers kind of day: “You can spend mornings at a cute coffee shop connecting with friends and afternoon[s] at art fairs or going to the beach. Evenings are spent dining out with friends while enjoying craft cocktails at Chartreuse Craft Cocktail Lounge and capping it all off with intimate concerts at night.”

Among the exciting initiatives that he’s developed in Bonita Springs is the Sugarshack Session Experience — live, acoustic musical performances that are shared on a popular YouTube channel. Moran is also backing the development of mixed-use developments that will include dining, shopping and living spaces — all designed to infuse even more appeal into this already lively area. For anyone who hasn’t yet experienced Bonita Springs, he says, “They don’t know what they’re missing!” It’s got all the amenities, like being close to the airport, near the beaches and with a walkable downtown, and he points out that “The hidden secret is in its culture.”
