An architectural and interior design firm with projects around the U.S. has renewed a five-year lease in downtown Winter Haven. The firm, C & K Architects|Interiors, Inc., (formerly Collman and Karsky Architects, Inc.) will retain its office at the ground floor of the Beymer Building. Six/Ten, LLC, serving as landlord, handled the lease renewal.
“C&K Architects has been responsible for many of the area’s most well-known projects, such as the new Heartland Community Church complex, award-winning downtown parking garage and the new Central Tavern , coming to downtown Winter Haven. We are happy to have them renew their commitment to being in Winter Haven,” said Six/Ten’s CEO, Bud Strang.
C&K worked with Six/Ten to refurbish several buildings in the downtown area to attract new businesses, including work on the 331 and 347 W. Central Avenue properties. Some of C&K’s current projects in the area include a 64-unit residential building in Haines City, and work on 273 W. Central and the Mann Building in downtown Winter Haven. The firm currently has projects in 12 states.
Formed in 1961 in Tampa, C&K has maintained a presence in Winter Haven since 2006. One of the firm’s first projects in Winter Haven was transforming the Verizon building into a multi-tenant project that today is part of the Inland Fiber & Data Technology Park.
C&K leader Bryan Karsky says his goal is to continue expansion of the firm’s Winter Haven business by of adding more commercial and mixed use multi-family projects. “We chose Winter Haven because of its great growth potential,” said Karsky. “With the addition of CSX, Florida Polytechnic University, the growth of Legoland and Polk State College converting to a four-year school, this area is really beginning to blossom.” For more information on C&K Architects | Interiors, Inc., please see the website at ck-arch.com.
