People looking for a place to live in Lake View are getting another choice.  Optima, the nameplate behind residential developments from Streeterville to Wilmette, has topped off its newest building: Optima Lakeview.

The apartment building replaces the neighborhood’s Treasure Island grocery store, which expired in 2018.  The seeds for this new building were planted in late last year.  The now fully-sprouted residential building should bear fruit in the Spring of next year.

In addition to 198 residences, Optima Lakeview will also have 14,000 square feet of retail space, and a rooftop deck.

More importantly, the apartments have been designed for the work-from-home age, with an average of 1,053 square feet, conference rooms, and a business center.
