Hector Torres started from humble beginnings in New York City where he learned construction practices and principals working in trade union vocational training programs. He has since completed over 10 million sq. ft. of real estate development. His projects include hi-rise residential luxury condos, multifamily developments, hotels, restaurants, spas, commercial offices and industrial uses. The latest, Boulevard 57, is a catalyst within the MiMo District evolution, incorporating the past, present and futuristic elements that make the district so appealing to domestic buyers. “Boulevard 57 comes to life with artistic architectural design by award-winning Sieger Suarez Architects, landscaping design by ESG2 and curated pieces of notable artwork by Manolo Valdes,” he says. “It will deliver abundant world-class comforts in every facet — from high ceilings, to 7-10 ft. deep terraces with glass railings, summer kitchens in the penthouses and much more.”; Blvd57.com.
