Six/Ten Announces “Raingarden Apartments”

Six-Ten Logo- Revised for LLCSix/Ten, LLC,  announced today the official groundbreaking of a 9-unit apartment project in downtown Winter Haven. The project will be the first new residential project in the downtown area in more than 25 years. The apartments will be located on a now vacant lot at the corner of Avenue A and Second Street, SW. A brief groundbreaking ceremony will be held on the site at 10:30 a.m., Monday, January 27, 2014.

“The Raingarden” apartments have been designed by Max W. Strang, of Max Strang Architecture, with offices in Miami and Telluride. Mr. Strang is an award-winning architect, recently honored with the 2013 Silver Medal for Design, its highest honor, by the Miami chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Strang is a native of Winter Haven.

“Promoting downtown living and the revitalization of the neighborhoods around the downtown core is a primary goal of Six/Ten’s”, said Kerry Wilson, the President of the Company. “These apartments will not only epitomize the modernist movement of which Max Strang is a rising star, but will harmonize with Winter Haven’s amazing collection of Gene Leedy architecture.”

The apartments will each consist of approximately 1,800 square feet of living space, with a private courtyard and enclosed two-car garage. Their location is within easy walking distance of Winter Haven’s downtown amenities, restaurants and retail locations. Renderings of the project will be available at the groundbreaking.

Everett R. Whitehead & Son, Inc., will construct the project expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2014.

Six/Ten, LLC is a real estate, leasing and diversified investment company.

    These apartments can not be built fast enough, and many more should follow.
    Last year Main Street Winter Haven, Inc. brought Kennedy Smith, a nationally recognized expert in downtown revitalization to Winter Haven. Her advice to us was to build residential in the downtown district as fast as we can and watch it explode. I am looking forward to that!
