"The Optima Chicago Center building has an impressive beauty derived from its simplicity, in contrast to the complex facades surrounding it. The exterior building aesthetics evolve from an expression of the functional spaces within – transparent glass at the street level, black translucent glass at the parking level and energy efficient silver metallic glass on the residential floors. Recessed outdoor space at the recreational floor 10 and residence club floor 32 create deep shadows that are important keys to making it all work visually."

David C. Hovey, FAIA
Architect of Optima Chicago Center

We’ve set a new standard for luxe apartment living in Chicago’s downtown. Our 42-story building’s sleek, modern architecture shows off floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which accent the elegantly modern floor plans—not to mention spectacular city and lakefront views. Bask in the back-to-nature interior details of our residences, including bamboo laminate flooring, granite countertops, sophisticated neutral finishes, and tasteful, contemporary accents such as porcelain tile, light fixtures, cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances.

Design details aren’t limited to individual residences or just our exterior—each space in Optima Center gives off a bold impression. Our doorman-equipped lobby has high ceilings with glass walls overlooking our lush plaza. These elements create a quiet barrier from the city street. Even our fitness center and residents’ lounge are constructed with comfort and luxury in mind, and are bathed in natural light.

We call it modern elegance; you call it home.
