Find Your Inspiration™
at Optima Lakeview in Chicago

For those who seek an elevated sense of home in one of Chicago’s most beloved neighborhoods, Optima Lakeview offers a uniquely holistic quality of life that inspires residents while nurturing a deeply satisfying sense of community.

For more than 40 years, Optima has changed the landscape of design and real estate development across the Chicago and Phoenix markets. Since its founding in 1978 by David and Eileen Hovey, Optima set out to control and execute every aspect of the process in-house – development, design, construction, sales and management – for a dynamic system that offers greater efficiency and flexibility. Working together with David Hovey Jr., AIA and Tara Hovey, they continue to refine Optima's visionary approach, innovative technology and progressive environmental standards.

Most recently, we have brought our unique approach to creating built environments to the city’s Lakeview neighborhood, as Optima Lakeview opens its doors as the boldly beautiful vision of award-winning architects David C. Hovey, FAIA, and David Hovey, Jr., AIA.
