Ripple Coworking restored an iconic oceanfront Flagler Beach building badly damaged by Hurricane Matthew, offering entrepreneurs and remote workers office and deskspace rentals, virtual office plans and meeting rooms.

Get an affordable workspace, collaborate with peers, and live a beachside lifestyle.

Six months after Hurricane Matthew devastated Flagler County’s shoreline, an iconic Flagler Beach building badly damaged by the storm has reopened as a coworking space.

“We closed on the building three weeks before the storm,” says Ripple Coworking founder, Kristi Furnari. “We had just begun renovations when the storm came through.”

The building lost nearly half its roof and supporting structure in the storm. Says Furnari, “it looked so bad, the Daytona News Journal included it in an article about the most badly damaged properties in Flagler County.”

Now fully reconstructed, Furnari believes Ripple Coworking will become a hub of entrepreneurial activity in Flagler County.

“Despite the challenges from the storm, it was a great opportunity to restore a marquis, oceanfront building in Flagler Beach’s business district, while at the same time creating place where entrepreneurs living a beachside lifestyle can get an affordable office and collaborate with peers.”


Featuring oceanfront views and a modern design, Ripple Coworking offers clients furnished office rentals, coworking memberships and virtual office plans. “It’s an ideal place for small business owners and remote workers who find it challenging to be productive in a home office,” says Furnari.

Office rentals start at $350/month and include high speed Internet, guest reception and free conference rooms hours. “The idea is that you can show up with your laptop and be working in minutes without having to spend a fortune.” says Furnari.

But the best part of Ripple Coworking is their community. “I’ve already seen clients help each other with online marketing, scaling businesses and managing staff. Our hope is that the value our clients get from being around their entrepreneurial peers will far exceed the rent they pay.”    

According to Furnari, offices are filling up fast. “We’ve only been open a matter of weeks and half of our 19 offices are already occupied.”
