LAKEVIEW – A seven-story luxury apartment building that replaces Lakeview’s recently closed closed Treasure Island grocery store, with Chicago’s first year-round rooftop pool.

Optima Lakeview, 3478 N. Broadway, is a 198-unit apartment building designed by David Hovey Sr., CEO and founder of Optima. The building opened in April and is 35 percent leased, while construction on its upper floors continues.

“We are excited to bring to market Optima Lakeview, a development as vibrant and dynamic as the Lakeview neighborhood for which it is named,” said David Hovey Jr., Optima president, chief operating officer and principal architect.

The Optima Lakeview Atrium features plants that will grow vertically and hang from the atrium.

The building features a modern exterior with warm-toned materials, including clear bronze glass and dark brick to complement the neighborhood, Hovey Sr. said.

Inside, the building features a seven-story open atrium that runs through the core of the building and has hanging gardens that will cover the atrium as plants grow, Hovey Sr. said.

The building offers a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments with smart home technology, according to Optima. Many units have private balconies or terraces.

The average unit size is 1,053 square feet, with rents ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 per month, according to Optima.

The building also has a rooftop terrace with views of Lake Michigan, Wrigley Field and the skyline, according to Optima. The sky deck has fire tables and heaters for the cooler months.

The 35-by-25-foot rooftop pool is heated and will remain open year-round, according to Optima. The rooftop also has a spa, theater, lounge chairs, dozens of grills and cooking stations, a glass-enclosed party room, and other amenities.

The building also has a 2,000-square-foot heated dog park, an indoor pickleball and basketball court, sports hall and a golf simulator, according to Optima.

Other amenities include a yoga room, sauna, pet spa, playground, game room, residents’ club and chef’s kitchen, according to Optima.

The building will serve people who work from home with two wired conference spaces and a business center, as well as multiple indoor and outdoor seating areas where residents can work, according to Optima.

Optima Lakeview is a transit-oriented development with proximity to multiple bus routes and rail lines, according to Optima. The building has 208 bike spaces and 94 fully enclosed parking spaces, including six charging stations for electric vehicles.

“Lakeview residents who saw the building take shape were among the first to sign a lease, with most saying the main reasons were our architectural design, 40,000-square-foot amenity package, resident programming and the convenient location,” said Hovey Jr.
