Optima Signature’s Basketball Court
Fitness centers come standard in most new residential high-rises, but few developers can lay claim to a full-size basketball court. The 57-story Optima Signature, which opened last year at 220 East Illinois Street in Streeterville, also has a children’s playground, bocce and squash courts, a “cold-plunge shower” and three saunas. More intense competitors can time themselves on a 40-yard dash track.
One-bedroom apartments start at $2,950.
