It is clear, at this juncture, that electric vehicles are the future. Electric cars are becoming more and more popular thanks to their environmental benefits and because electricity is cleaner.
While more and more charging stations are popping up in various public places, such as stores, most people charge their electric cars at home, which is great if you have your own a single-family home, but for people living in a condominium, it is not easy to charge their electric cars.
Many buildings are now offering EV charging stations and Gramercy Towers, of course, we want to provide the same service as they are offered in many luxury properties. At this time, we would like to know if you would be interested in an EV charger for your use, presently or in the future. As always, your comments and concerns are welcomed and encouraged.
As you know by now, Gramercy Towers is getting ready for a new look. The two (2) noted design concepts were presented at the Paella Tapas Pool Party on March 15th. We received quite a bit of feedback from homeowners and tenants alike and have taken all of your comments into great consideration. In light of the feedback received, Cindy Bayon is now working on a new design which will be more traditional and reflecting of the Nob Hill style. This is an important project for Gramercy as it is the first impression that owners, tenants, visitors and potential buyers are given.
In addition to the improvements that have been made around the building, the entrance gates are in the final stages of being repainted and repaired to preserve Gramercy Towers’ curb appeal and maintain the luxurious aesthetics of the building.
We are excited to announce that we are currently in the planning stages of the replacement of our laundry equipment and the painting of the laundry rooms. We are looking to replace the current machines with top of the line Quantum machines which will allow you to pay as you currently do with a mag strip card, pay at the machine with a credit or debit card, and even have the capability to pay with your smart phone. You will even be able to see which machine is available, check on the status of your laundry in the washer and dryer!! The new machines will be more efficient in that they will use less water and energy.
On Monday, January 30, Gramercy began its preparations for painting and waterproofing the building, which will take place in 2017 and 2018. The inspections and investigation have already taken place and we are proceeding with more specific testing and a mock-up. Contractors were out and removed some fluted metal panels, stripped the paint and sealant from a few windows and from some stamped/patterned metal panels, resealed the windows, spot painted the frames where damage or scratches existed and painted the stamped/patterned metal panels, the Architectural Committee will now review the results of the inspection and investigation as well as the analysis of the testing that will make Gramercy Towers look like the jewel of Nob Hill!
