Design-driven real estate firm Optima, Inc. has started welcoming resident move-ins at Optima Verdana, a new luxury rental community in downtown Wilmette.

Since opening its leasing gallery in May, Optima Verdana has seen a surge in renters looking for a new North Shore apartment. The property is 72% leased, surpassing expectations.

Optima Verdana offers 100 residences in one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts and penthouse configurations, spanning from 660 to 2,790 square feet. Monthly rents range from about $3,000 to nearly $12,000.

Designed by Optima CEO and founder David Hovey Sr., and David Hovey Jr., the community stands apart from other rental offerings on the North Shore due to its contemporary design, comprehensive amenities, innovative sustainable features and abundant greenery.

“When we designed Optima Verdana, our goal was to deliver an unrivaled living experience that takes full advantage of the community’s unique position in the heart of downtown Wilmette while delivering exceptional design, amenities and services to residents and their guests,” said Hovey Sr. “The strong leasing performance at Optima Verdana surpassed our expectations and demonstrates the demand for the convenience, modern interiors and low-maintenance lifestyle that only a luxury rental community like this can provide.”

Available in two distinctive finish packages, the residences feature floor-to-ceiling windows with roller shades, 10-inch luxury wide-plank flooring, chef-inspired kitchens equipped with Fisher & Paykel appliances and Kohler fixtures, custom built-in storage solutions, wine fridges, spacious pantries, and bathrooms with free-standing soaking tubs and separate water closets in most floor plans.
