Husband, wife combination plays key role in transformative development projects in county By Lou Sorendo Falecia Avery They are Oswego’s version of the ultimate power couple. Atom and Falecia (Murray) Avery have hardly hit their stride in the business world, but they are already heralded for their high level of entrepreneurial spirit while generating significant economic and community growth in the city and county of Oswego. The couple’s latest creation is the Litatro building in downtown Oswego, one of several recent developments that have spurred a renaissance in the city. Dominating the Oswego city skyline, Litatro features 20 housing units, private-access underground parking and a rooftop bar area. “It is very fulfilling,” Falecia said. “Both of our families have business backgrounds and are from the Oswego area. We are very proud to be from Oswego and are happy to be a part of its growth and revitalization.” Since 1999, Avery Rental Properties has provided housing for students, families and business professionals throughout the community. In 2011, the couple teamed to transform Oswego’s historic Knights of Columbus building into the Beacon Hotel, a 14-room boutique style hotel. The hotel project earned them the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Small Business Excellence Award
