Grande New York City Fund - Coming Soon!
The Grande New York City Fund is a pooled equity real estate investment fund focused on acquisition, development, and redevelopment in targeted areas of the New York City metropolitan area.
Funds invested in the Grande New York City Fund are delegated to current and future TGO projects in the New York City metropolitan area at The Grande Organization’s discretion.
The fund focuses on specialized projects that appeal to the unique markets that fraternize New York City. Entertainment, sports, and education are among the targeted projects types. As part of a longstanding business model of developing celebrity partnerships, TGO utilizes funds raised from the Grande New York City Fund to invest in celebrity-supported businesses. Partnerships with associated celebrities and celebrity brands enable projects to stand out from competitors in one of the busiest and wealthiest places in the world.
An existing partnership with the estate of Edna Anderson-Owens has allowed one of music history’s celebrated personalities to continue the legacy of a life that celebrated music. Edna Anderson-Owens was a music executive and assistant to Motown founder Barry Gordy. Her influence helped bring about one of the most powerful movements in recent music history, and helped it to become more than just fun. In memory of her life, her accomplishments, and her work, The Grande Organization has developed a project that will carry on her love for music, and hopes to carry on the spark that led her life to invigorate the tradition of American music, in its past and modern state.
Toward this end, The Grande Organization is developing Edna’s Place, EVAO, and Edna Anderson-Owens Pavilion—a three part concept centered on music, live performance, dining, bar, and café features. Edna’s Place is a bar and café concept able to seat up to 250 guests. By day, it would offer café service, and bar services at night. While its live performance functions are on a smaller scale than its sister concepts, Edna’s Place features a uniquely intimate and casual setting. EVAO, a 500 seat bar and restaurant, assiduously honors the music theme in its selection of décor, branding, atmosphere, and services. Small-scale shows accompany the regionally modeled full-service restaurant and bar. The Edna Anderson-Owens Pavilion is the largest and grandest venue. Capable of seating up to 1,200, this concept draws from national talent to host large-scale shows and entertainment. Features include a bar, restaurant, lounge, and concert stage, as well as the possible addition of VIP areas and other high-end services.
Residential and Hospitality
The New York metropolitan area offers exciting opportunities for residential and hospitality development. Leveraging its experience in multiple development types, the Grande Organization has identified trends in residential development that are driving economic activity in development and real estate. The conversion and re-development of apartment units into condominiums is one such avenue. New York City also has a record setting hospitality industry, with rising levels of hotel rates and occupancy. Targeted residential and hospitality projects will be announced and marked as candidates for New York City Funding as these projects mature into a stage ready for investment.
Sports and Education
The Grande New York City Fund also invests in regional sports and education projects. The foundation of these projects are based respectively on celebrity branding and existing relationships with educators. Celebrity partners, to be announced in stages, lend their personality and branding to specific TGO sports brands, relevant to the celebrity in question. Excelsior International School, an established educator with 2 years of successful operation and a member of a prolific international education group, is The Grande Organization’s education partner, and will share their tested curriculum and operation with TGO on New York metropolitan projects, which may combine sports with education or other functions as specified by the project.
Funds raised by the Grande New York City Fund will be allocated at The Grande Organization’s discretion for New York metropolitan projects to be announced in the near future.
This exciting opportunity will be available soon. Stay tuned. Check back or sign up for our newsletter!
