Optima Verdana® is an extraordinary expression of luxury that merges inspired design, breathtaking natural beauty, unparalleled service and a strong sense of community to create a flawlessly curated apartment living experience.

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 environmental stewardship.

Most recently, Optima® has brought its unique approach to creating communities to the village of Wilmette, as Optima Verdana® opens its doors as the radiant new vision of award-winning architects David C. Hovey, FAIA and David Hovey, Jr., AIA.
