Streeterville Getting Crowded With Hovey's Optima Center

New, 21 comments

Last weekend's break in the heat was the perfect opportunity to check in on how things are progressing with Optima Center Chicago. Designed by award-winning architect David Hovey, the 42-story building is going up on St. Clair and Illinois in Streeterville. To date, only one rendering has been released of the project, and it doesn't provide us with a ton of guidance on what type of detailing is planned for the facade. The concrete frame is already 8 floors above street level as seen from Upper Illinois. Apartments in the 325-unit rental building will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, SS-apps, and granite countertops. The project also calls for a 238-space parking structure. Check back for more updates!
