The grand opening for the 42-story Optima Center Chicago apartment building is coming the weekend of October 5-6. On those dates, the David Hovey-developed-and-designed tower will splay open to the curious public with model units and common spaces to tour. The distinctive black-and-blue glass building brings 325 apartments to Streeterville, which have been leasing since July. Today's press release restates the pricing: convertibles from $1,960 to $2,542 a month; one-beds from $2,011 to $4,563; two-beds from $2,944 to $4,704; and three-beds from $4,744 to $5,474. Penthouses? Yep, there are two— each priced above $10K/month. Head here for your interior pics and floorplans.

The press release also confirms Optima's steadfast desire to develop the neighboring acre parcel at 220 E Illinois into an even larger tower— 57 stories, 400 apartments, and 200 hotel rooms.
