at Gramercy Park of Eagan is easy living. We are
in the heart of the city and close to
everything. I enjoy reading and we have a
wonderful library with a lot of choices and
up-to-date books. On nice days I can walk up to
a local park, and when the weather is not nice I
enjoy the use of our fitness center where I can
get a good work out. We have a lot of activities
in house along with special dinners and
entertainment which I always enjoy.
best thing about living here are the members.
They are friendly, smart and a whole lot of fun
and there is always someone there for you when
you need them. The first time I walked into our
beautiful lobby several people I did not know
said hello and welcomed me. I knew right away
this would be my new home. - Joanne M.
Glenn had by-pass surgery in 2003 it became
obvious that we would have to live a simpler
life style. Our daughter, who lives in Eagan,
persuaded us to start looking here in her
neighborhood for a place where she could help
us, and we could enjoy being closer to her and
her family. We chose Gramercy Park of Eagan and
we relocated here from Michigan in 2004.
believe that we made an excellent choice, for
several reasons: we have a comfortable home just
a mile and a half from our daughter, and
excellent health care is available here in the
twin cities. Also, we enjoy the arts and this
area has much to offer. We have made many new
friends here and have time to enjoy their
company, since there is less strain and work in
apartment living. We recommend Gramercy Park of
Eagan because it is a friendly community and
very convenient to retirement style living.

were the first ones to move into Gramercy Eagan.
My wife liked that everything was on one floor
she was tired of lugging laundry down to the
basement and then back up again. I was tired of
maintaining a 40-year old house and the “honey
dos” that involved. When my wife passed away,
our unit was too big for just me so I took
advantage of another feature of the
cooperative—the variety in unit size—and
moved into a small unit. - Neal B.
like Gramercy Park of Eagan because of the
location. It is close to church, shopping,
restaurants and readily assessable to the
airport and the Twin Cities. The aspect of
community life appealed to us. We like the more
secure way of living and the security of our
property, while traveling, is important.
By downsizing we’ve been able to simplify our
lifestyle and have more time to travel and
pursue other interests. It’s a more hassle
free way of life. There are no surprise
expenses. We like the idea of general repair,
replacement and upkeep, as well as utility bills
being included in the monthly payment.
We like the layout and appearance of the
building and grounds as well as the different
floor plans to choose from. We picked the Willow
floor plan because it was within our budget
guidelines and we wanted something big enough
for the two of us now but not something too
large for one person when one of us dies. Living
here will eliminate any abrupt changes in where
the survivor lives when one dies. We like the
idea of having our living space on one level, no
stairs, and we have elevators to the other
floors. - Jim
