Housing the Stars

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
