The Northwind Group and the Tsunis Family

Founded in 2002 by senior community homebuilder Jim Tsunis, The Northwind Group is the natural successor to a highly successful building business begun by Jim’s father, James Tsunis, Sr., in the 1960s. Back then, the Tsunis name was synonymous with quality and community-minded construction. And so it is today. Recognizing the ever-growing need for top quality living choices for today’s active seniors, Northwind is dedicated to building the very best communities for homeowners 55 and better, and boasts extraordinary condominium communities all over the region. With its deep roots in Long Island, Northwind has a history of working closely with local officials and civic organizations to create desirable homes that address the needs of not only potential homeowners, but the community at large.

Successful Developments

In 2004, Northwind broke ground on one of its first adult communities — Setauket Meadows in East Setauket. Converting a former commercial site, Northwind built a beautifully landscaped community of 150 townhomes designed to provide a fashionable living experience for today’s 55 and better buyers. Residents soon noted Northwind’s meticulous attention to detail and dedication to environmental improvement, which included transplanting more than 100 Eastern Cedar Trees to preserve the esthetics of the community. Today, Setauket Meadows is fully occupied, and its residents enjoy a high standard of living in a quiet gated community.
