Though construction of The Ring in downtown Clearwater only began in December and won’t be complete until late spring, the list of entrepreneurs and small business owners interested in calling the co-working space home keeps growing.
“We haven’t done any marketing yet,” says Simee Ikajevs, the project’s co-Founder. “But there’s already word of mouth; there’s a buzz. People are excited about what we’re doing. It’s needed here.”
Her husband, real estate developer Daniels Ikajevs, who owns three office towers downtown, including One Clearwater Tower (previously known as the Bank of America building), says the early interest is a good indicator of what’s to come in Clearwater.
