Our modern interior finishes and convenient community perks are the perfect addition to this historic and cultural hub. Founded in 1885, Ybor City coined a unique profession and cultural leaders known as “Lectors”. To stay entertained throughout the workday, the historic cigar factory workers would open pay individuals to read books, newspapers and magazines aloud for hours on end. These individuals eventually became known as Lectors and evolved into highly respected influential leaders who imparted new ideas. Today, Lector 85 exists to celebrate Ybor’s roots while providing a space for a new generation of cultural leaders to emerge.
