“David Hovey, FAIA, nationally known architect and owner of Optima, Inc., says buyers want a little of what the city has to offer without giving up the comfort of the suburbs. Optima Old Orchard in Skokie offers two and three bedroom luxury condominiums.

“Whether they are career professionals or snow birds, more buyers are interested in the lock and leave lifestyle of a condominium building, yet they may prefer a less hectic pace than the city provides,” he says.”
