As fall approaches, construction work continues on Optima Lakeview, a 198-unit rental community taking shape at the site of the former Treasure Island grocery store at 3460 N. Broadway.
Although the seven-story project isn't expected to welcome residents until spring 2022, developer-architect Optima, Inc. has provided Urbanize fresh images hinting at what renters can expect from the building's expansive private terraces and its striking glass-enclosed central atrium.
Optima Lakeview was designed with multiple upper-level architectural setbacks to provide outdoor spaces ranging from 67 to 2113 square feet and feature built-in grills and fire pits. One of the new renderings shows residents enjoying a private 986-square-foot landscaped terrace that is attached to a single unit.
While not every apartment will enjoy such expansive outdoor spaces, every renter in the building will have access to 40,000 square feet of amenities including an indoor basketball court, a fitness center, a dog park, a children's play area, a game room, a demonstration kitchen, a golf simulator and putting green, conference rooms, and a communal rooftop pool deck with sweeping lake and skyline views.
The second rendering offers an exclusive first look at Optima Lakeview's soaring interior atrium. Apartments and building amenities surround the seven-story space, which is designed with "biophilic" touches such as planters containing lush greenery and a large skylight providing ample year-round natural light.
Optima Lakeview's 198 rental units are offered in one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. The development also contains roughly 14,000 square feet of commercial space and garage parking for 94 cars and 208 bicycles. In addition to acting as both developer and architect, Optima, Inc. serves as the project's general contractor and intends to manage its upcoming Lakeview property in-house.
