Located on N. Broadway in the middle of a vibrant community, Optima Lakeview will bring together the surrounding architectural aesthetic with our passion for Modernist design to create a truly unique living experience.

Optima Lakeview will feature an undulating façade with deep recesses, shades, and shadows, and setbacks designed for outdoor terraced landscapes. An elegant and sophisticated palette of warm-toned exterior materials — including transparent bronze glass and rich, dark brick — will complement the surrounding neighborhood. Inside the building, a striking, landscaped interior atrium will bring in plenty of natural light and create a connection to nature.

Scheduled for completion in 2022, Optima Lakeview will include one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes, 14,000 square feet of commercial space and 40,000 square feet of amenity spaces for residents to enjoy. Spanning across seven stories, Optima Lakeview’s unmatched amenity floors will feature an indoor basketball court, golf simulator and putting green, fitness center, dog park, children’s center, demonstration kitchen, conference rooms and a rooftop sky deck with resort pool and amazing views of Lake Michigan, Wrigley Field and downtown Chicago. Our in-home concierge program, Optimized Service® provides several conveniences for residents, and our Optima Connect® program helps residents stay connected to their neighborhood through exclusive benefits and discounts.
