In the early summer of 2012, I met the producers for the upcoming movie, "August: Osage County." They wanted to see Gramercy Lofts. I said, "Sure!" We toured the site even though it was only partially complete and construction still ongoing. They loved it and leased 11 units in the 2023 building and 2031 building. The entire top billing cast stayed here and they talk about their experience gathering at Meryl's place, 2023-5, where she would cook dishes like chicken stuffed with goat cheese making special trips to Tulsa to Whole Foods and watching the election debates together. So, if there are Oscar Awards to be had, maybe our community gets just a small assist. You can watch four of the cast talk about living and bonding here at Gramercy via this clip from the Hollywood Reporter. The cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Ewan McGregor, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney, Margo Martindale, Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, Julianne Nicholson
What is Gramercy Lofts?
Gramercy Lofts is a new residential living concept for Bartlesville and will offer a fresh living style for those looking to own their home, yet have the freedom that comes with a managed community. An on-site fitness gym along with an inside and outside dry sauna, pool and clubhouse gathering room will provide owners the sort of choices usually reserved for larger metropolitan areas. The interiors will be coordinated by our first class design staff and will include hardwood floors in 2nd floor living spaces, granite kitchen counters, granite bathroom vanity counters, Low E & argon windows, full-size washer and dryer room arrangements, covered 1st floor rear patios and covered 2nd floor balconies in selected units. Gramercy Lofts will be located one block west of highway seventy five on Stonewall Drive and is part of Park Place Addition.
The forty unit condominium community exteriors are styled after the townhomes common in New York City 150 years ago. Our adaptation will be blended from local materials including brick, stone and stucco, but will still retain the side-by-side townhome style concept. There is actually a gated community in Manhattan called Gramercy Park, which derives it's name from the Dutch Krom Moerasje meaning "little crooked swamp". The private fenced 2 acre neighborhood is 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."
And so our concept borrows on the idea of the neighborhood belonging to the owners and being a unique, respected and well-maintained placed to live. We have designed eight units of varying size and amenities and named them for places in and around New York City. These units will be called Soho Flat, Brooklyn Flat, Brooklyn Loft, Hudson Square, Central Park, Gramercy Loft, Greenwich Village and Union Square. Each unit will be decorated in one of four color palettes to appeal to a variety of tastes and styles.
The first is called Weathered Urban, an eclectic blend of distressed black trim and doors along with dark stained alder cabinets and urban style brushed nickel hardware and light fixtures. The second is called Cool Midwestern, which will be a relaxed, cool silver-toned wall color with crisp white moldings and doors and Spiced Walnut stained maple cabinets. The third is called Clean Linen, featuring a modern twist with very light and bright walls, soft white painted moldings, stained knotty alder cabinets & chrome fixtures. The fourth is called Old Town, which will feature oil rubbed bronze fixtures, creamy umber distressed moldings, stained alder or maple cabinets and warm, inviting wall hues.
We are excited about offering a fresh way to own a residence in a unique low-maintenance high-amenity community while we our commitment to craftsmanship and energy efficiency. Here are some of those energy saving features: Low E; argon windows, dual unit for zoned temperature control, tankless hot water systems and R-38 blown ceiling insulation. In addition to these great features, the nature of the stacked side-by-side townhome lends itself to low heating and cooling costs. Each unit will also be insulated from the adjacent unit by a double insulated 2 hour which also includes air space for sound control.
Gramercy Lofts Homeowners Association will maintain landscaping, lawn, pool & spa, fitness gym, parking and driveways and community clubhouse. The monthly fee will be established in the amount of $185 monthly. This amount will fund the following: 1. water, sewer & trash 2. lawn & landscaping 3. snow removal & parking lot maintenance 4. management and maintenance of community building
5. management and maintenance of fitness gym, sauna and pool.
The addition of on-site fitness gym along with a dry sauna, pool and clubhouse gathering room will provide owners the sort of choices usually reserved for larger metropolitan areas.
