Sited alongside the Harms Woods Forest Preserve just north of Chicago, on the North Shore, Optima Old Orchard Woods is a mixed-use apartment and condominium development that offers a dramatic setting with unobstructed views of textured planes of treetops west toward the horizon. These woods, preserved for Chicago in the early 20th century through the efforts of Daniel Burnham and others, is a focal point of the project. The Chicago skyline to the south, less than twenty miles away, is also visible, illustrating Frank Lloyd Wright’s observation that the best location for a high-rise tower was not in the city but beyond where such views can be observed.

Enjoy a swift commute to the arenas and nightlife of downtown Chicago via the Edens expressway, to the parkland, health clubs, restaurants, Old Orchard Shopping Center and other luxuries of the North Shore, including Highland Park’s Ravinia Music Festival. Boaters will frequent the Skokie Lagoons, while equestrians will enjoy the stable down the road and riding trails nearby. Every amenity you deserve is here, just outside your door.
