Capstone Real Estate Development is excited to announce that pre-leasing is underway at Factory 243, a modern, urban-style loft apartment complex in downtown Canandaigua. This development project brings new life to the former site of the Lisk Manufacturing Company’s facilities.

“Factory 243 is the ideal residential location for anyone who wants to enjoy the spirit of the city in the heart of the Finger Lakes, from young professionals to empty nesters,” said Don Lasher, CEO of Capstone Real Estate Development. “We are thrilled to offer something unique to the local market with sleek, urban-style lofts that are unlike anything else in the Finger Lakes region.”

The industrial, loft-style apartments at Factory 243 all feature granite countertops, high vaulted ceilings, and other high-end finishes. One- and two-bedroom units are available, and some floorplans offer an additional in-unit loft area. Standard features include energy-efficient LED lighting, smart-lock mobile-phone-enabled entrances, and large windows. The pet-friendly complex has an outdoor common space with multiple pergolas, a grilling area, abundant green space, and more.

Upon completion, Factory 243 will include 83 units across three buildings on the former site of the Lisk Manufacturing Company at 243 Gorham Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424.

“We are proud to have restored these character-rich buildings on the site of the historic Lisk Manufacturing plant, which dates back to the 1890s,” Lasher added. “Lisk was important to Canandaigua’s past, and we are confident Factory 243 will play a major role in its future.”

The Lisk Manufacturing Company, which closed its Canandaigua operations in 1965, was a leading producer of anti-rusting tinware and enamelware in the first half of the 20th century and employed up to 800 people in Canandaigua at the height of its success. Throughout Factory 243’s construction process, which began in summer 2017, Capstone was mindful of preservation, exposing each building’s original charm as much as possible.

The property is located within walking distance from Canandaigua’s City Center as well as the north shore of Canandaigua Lake. The Ontario Pathways Trail System, New York State Thruway, and Finger Lakes Wine Region are also in close proximity.

Pre-leasing for Factory 243 is in progress now. For more information on the new community, its buildings and floorplans, or for pre-leasing inquiries, visit Factory243.com or call (585) 546-6459.
