Optima Signature, a new apartment tower just off Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, recently welcomed its first residents and has opened two of its four amenities levels.
Budget a greater than usual amount of time for your tour at Optima Signature, because the amenities are far more extensive than what you’ll see at other new apartment towers. Start with a walk through one of the resident lounges toward the basketball and bocce courts, the golf simulator and putting green, the yoga studio and indoor pool and whirlpool.
If you’re a fitness buff or wannabe you’ll find the workout venue of your dreams at Optima Signature. The lavish men’s and women’s locker rooms have showers, steam and sauna, and towel service.
When you head outside you’ll find larger steam and sauna rooms adjacent to private and public grilling areas.
The sprawling outdoor terraces on the 7th and 8th floors have lush landscaping, hot tubs, an outdoor pool with private cabanas, a variety of seating and sunning options, a playground, and open vistas to the south.
There’s much more to see at Optima Signature, and we’ll showcase the remaining amenities when they’re complete.
Optima Signature has studio to 3-bedroom apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows, wide plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, quartz or granite counters and in-unit washer / dryers. The top 15 residential floors, the Apex apartments, have upgraded finishes and 9- or 10-foot ceilings.
Convertible apartments start at $1,965 a month, 1-bedrooms at $2,510, 2-bedroom, 2-baths at $3,825 and 3-bedroom, 2-baths at $4,775. A 3-bedroom, 3-bath penthouse will be available for occupancy in mid-December at $15,695 a month. Floor plans and near real-time rent and availability info are online.
