The Miami Chapter of the American Institute of Architects highlighted Downtown Winter Haven apartment building RainGarden at their annual awards gala. The apartment building’s Miami-based design firm, [Strang] Architecture, received the “Honor Award of Excellence” for their work on the project.

The RainGarden Apartments were completed last year and represent Downtown Winter Haven’s first multifamily development in over 25 years.

Max Strang, a Winter Haven native, designed the building one block from Central Avenue to continue the legacy of modern architecture in his hometown. In 2013 he received the Silver Medal for Design, the highest honor from the Miami chapter of the American Institute of Architects. RainGarden is just one of many residential projects Strang has designed.

The project was developed by Six/Ten LLC, a local residential and commercial real estate developer spearheading the economic and urban revitalization of Downtown Winter Haven.

“RainGarden puts residents within easy walking distance of parks, restaurants and shops, creating a work­live‐play environment downtown,” said Kerry Wilson, Six/Ten’s President. “We have only two units remaining for individuals seeking urban living at its finest.”

RainGarden features nine apartments with 1,600 square feet of living space, two­ car garages and private courtyards. For leasing information, please contact Chad Lennox at (863) 595-0237.
