Senior living the way it’s meant to be

H

ave you ever noticed how everyone wants to live to a ripe, old age but nobody wants to be old? I’m not old yet (despite what my children say) – at least not old enough to live in the new Overture Sugar Land apartments currently under construction between the old Imperial Sugar factory and Constellation Field. If I were old enough, I’d seriously be considering the benefits of residing there. I like the location and the convenience to so many local shops and local points of interest. The apartments, which are due to open in March, include one and two-bedroom floor plans ranging in size from 676 to 1,143 square feet of living space. That’s perfect for anyone age 55 and older looking to downsize and simplify their life. The homes will have elegantly modern kitchens that feature granite countertops, tiled backsplashes, glass-paneled cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and under cabinet lighting. Interiors will include wood-style plank flooring, large windows for more natural light, spacious bathrooms with spa-style showers and soaking tubs, walk-in closets, full size top-load washers and dryers and private balconies or patios in select units. Service doesn’t stop with luxury living. Overture Sugar Land will offer trips and tours, Sunday brunches, social

activities such as happy hours, cooking classes, wine tastings, professional concierge services, and thoughtfully designed amenity spaces. A full-time activities director and resident concierge will serve residents through programming of activities and coordinating and delivering a la carte services such as housekeeping, personal trainers, etc. Additional amenities will include a resident clubhouse, swimming pool and spa, demonstration kitchen, coffee bar and bistro, library, game room, theater room, yoga studio, fitness center, full service hair salon, nail salon and business center. We’re talking about a seriously fun lifestyle without a lot of the headaches that go with it. Imagine having a swimming pool but not having to maintain it. Do you enjoy a yard but hate mowing grass and raking leaves? There’s nothing like being able to leave those annoying chores to someone else while you get the leisure of living the good life. If you’re over 55 and want to know more about this wonderful way of life, be sure to read the cover story inside this issue of The Fort Bend/Katy Business Journal.
