Optima Inc. has expanded its property management and leasing capabilities to its projects in Chicago. Despite being owner, architect, developer and general contractor for its properties in Chicago and Arizona, Optima previously only handled property management services for its Arizona communities.

Now the company will take on property management and leasing for its three Class A rental buildings in the Chicago area: Optima Signature, Optima Lakeview and Optima Wilmette. David Hovey Jr., Optima’s president & COO, said in prepared remarks that it was a natural progression for Optima to bring management in house as the company expands its Chicago area portfolio.

With Optima Signature being the only completed community, Optima will kick off its property management services there by offering resident services and virtual event programming that includes housekeeping, pet care, car care, virtual fitness classes and room and bar service.

Located at 220 E. Illinois St., Optima Signature opened its doors in 2017. The 57-story luxury rental development offers 490 units through studios, convertibles, one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. The property’s amenities include a fitness center, resident lounge, children’s play area, running track, dog park, outdoor kitchen, sports courts and indoor and outdoor pools. Residents also get direct access to the nearby Whole Foods from the building.
