Farash Co. Opens Housing Complex

Symbolizing the official opening of a new multi-million dollar apartment complex in Webster, N.Y., Webster Mayor R. Case today presented a golden key to Max M. Farash, president of the Farash Construction Corporation.

Built by the Farash Construction, the beautiful new Country Manor Apartments has 328 apartment units, both one and two bedroom, which are completely air-conditioned. Garages are available for the tenants of this project and a sizeable recreation area is now being developed for the use by Country Manor apartment tenants.

During the opening ceremonies Mayor Case paid tribute to the Farash Corporation and indicated the delight of the Village of Webster in having such a well planned, well constructed and well managed apartment project in Webster. He referred to the Farash Corporation as a new and welcome neighbor.

In his remarks Mr. Farash told the large gathering present, “We welcomed the opportunity to come to Webster. It is our feeling that the Village needed an apartment complex such as Country Manor.” Mr. Farash also said, “While we are pleased with Country Manor, we are by no means completely satisfied, it is always our desire to bring to any community which we enter projects that are not only a source of revenue to the Towns, but they must also be eye-appealing. We trust that our neighbors feel with us that this has been accomplished in the case of Country Manor.” Mr. Farash went on to say. “We are dedicating our efforts to making projects which we present in the future, even more desirable than those which we have completed.

Mr. Farash paid tribute to the home owners in the immediate area for their understanding. He noted the problems faced by both the developer and the neighbors during the period of construction. Country Manor was a vast undertaking and he thanked the people for their patience.

Following the opening ceremonies all the guests were invited to participate in refreshments which caterers had all arranged for over 500 guests. Among the guests were most of the Village and Town officials, including both the planning boards and the zoning boards. There was also a good representation of community and business leaders from Webster, the city of Rochester, and the surrounding towns..
