Six/Ten LLC is bring renewed life to one of Florida’s most beautiful cities with new office, retail and residential offerings in the historic downtown district. The company has acquired more than two dozen properties here and is recapturing their original, beautiful architecture while modernizing them with updated technology and amenities.
“Six/Ten is catapulting the revitalization into reality by creating desirable, contemporary workspace environments and retail destinations,” said Kerry Wilson, President of the company.
The company is supporting the efforts of local groups, such as Main Street Winter Haven and the Winter Haven Economic Development Council, to bring people and businesses back to the city’s original hub just south of Lake Silver. This effort includes the historic Beymer Building, which has been fully rehabilitated into Class A office space and is fully occupied.
Other unique properties include the site of the original Publix market, an arcade building from 1928 that now houses an artisanal cheese shop, and a multifamily rental community designed by award-winning, modernist architect Max Strang. The properties are designed to meet tenant needs for price, size, configuration and location.
“We are creating a synergy of office, retail and residential offerings,” Wilson said. “Tenants enjoy the pedestrian-friendly environment of downtown Winter Haven, and they also want to be a part of its revitalization.”
Six/Ten is also investing in technology, having purchased and remodeled two former telecommunication towers with state-of-the-art fiber connections. The buildings have direct connections to more than five high-speed Internet providers, including Level 3 and Verizon, which owns portions of the company’s Inland Fiber & Data Park.
The creative combination of historic charm and high technology is attracting medical and professional practices, along with restaurants, stores and people seeking an urban lifestyle in a small-town setting. The company’s multi-year plan calls for continued investment in downtown properties and technology, and bringing new companies and residents to the area.
