Gramercy is more than a housing complex
– it's a neighborhood, and any good neighborhood has gathering places and spaces to be who you are but also be part of a community.
Gramercy offers a fresh living style and a freedom that comes with a managed community. Two fitness gyms along with dry saunas, a dipping pool and clubhouse with a tornado shelter provide residents choices usually reserved for metropolitan areas.
Three phases of Gramercy will comprise 100 unit ownership trusts (condos is the common term) and these take the shape of town homes, cottages, bungalows, and tiny cottages. The town homes at Gramercy Park in New York City built 150 years ago were the inspiration for phase I. Gramercy Park is a 2 acre neighborhood in Manhattan, referred to in John B. Pine's 1921 book, The Story of Gramercy Park: "...Gramercy Park represents one of the earliest attempts in this country at city planning."
Gramercy Lofts Homeowners' Association maintains landscaping, pool, fitness gyms, driveways and clubhouses. The fee for owners is $185 monthly. This fee funds the following services: 1. water, sewer & trash 2. lawn & landscaping 3. management and maintenance of clubhouses, parks, gardens, and walking trails. 4. management and maintenance of fitness gyms, sauna, and pool.
Ordinary folks and movies stars enjoy the Gramercy community. In summer of 2012, the producers of the movie, "August: Osage County," toured Gramercy. They loved our neighborhood and leased eleven town homes in the 2023/2031 buildings. The cast talk about their experience gathering at Meryl Streep's town home at Union Square, 2023 se Nova ave, Unit 5, where she cooked stuffed chicken with goat cheese while watching the election debates together the cast of the movie. The cast included the following actors and actresses who all stayed at Gramercy for nearly three months: Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Ewan McGregor, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney, Margo Martindale, Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, and Julianne Nicholson.
Walking trails, hammocks & fire pits
room to run and a place to belong
Where else can you have a sense of belonging to a community that shares many things. A green space with lawn to lounge in a hammock on a lazy Saturday or throw a frisbee. A dipping pool to cool off in the summer heat. A great place to stretch the legs and go for a walk around the neighborhood, or ride a bike to Pathfinder Parkway just a couple blocks away. Swings, benches, fire pits, and for the green thumb crowd or if you just want some fresh vegetables, check out our community gardens.

Future plans: Gramercy Phase 3
More Bungalows, Cottages, and Tiny Homes

We've left green space in our 3rd phase for community gardens. Nothing is better than tomatoes, peppers, squash, and sweet potatoes fresh from the garden and into your kitchen.
