A hint of Nantucket in Houston – Tradition on Buffalo Speedway gives senior living a designer look

Jhe talented design team at Olasky & Sinsteden who dressed The Tradition at Buffalo Speedway would have been thrilled to hear my reaction to the Tradition Club on the fifth floor. “It looks like the Nantucket Yacht Club,” I say.

Sinsteden has a home in Nantucket, so the resemblance was no accident. You see, there is little in this luxury senior development that says ‘senior living’.

Security, yes. Managed care and memory care, yes. But there’s also the full-service spa, chef-led restaurant and curated wine list, daily fitness classes, fitness trainer, bridge club, Bible study club, and upscale interiors. range of Olasky and Sinsteden.

The Buffalo Speedway Tradition was in the spotlight recently when the team of owners arrived from Dallas, as some do every week, to present the property to real estate agents in the Houston area. Real estate agents? Yes, says Vanessa Randall, COO of The Tradition.

People in a certain age group often consider selling their home and looking for a more purposeful form of living as they get older. Yet they often don’t know where to jump. This event planted the seeds of future tenants.

“We wanted to develop a community that has a warm residential feel with the amenities that our age group really loves,” said Jonathan Perlman, Founder and CEO of The Tradition. “And then we want to take care of them. We work really, really hard on good food, socializing.

“It’s an all-inclusive rental model with allowance in the dining room. You can bring guests. Utilities are included. Cleaning once a week. Scheduled transport. Social directors.

The mid-size Buffalo Speedway community decor is traditional with authentic antique furniture, hardwood floors, gas fireplaces, water features and generous landscaping. The Tradition Woodway, a skyscraper, has a more contemporary look.

Both properties, Perlman says, allow seniors to settle into a luxury community located in the middle of all the neighborhood things they’re used to being a part of.
