Optima Builds Out Montessori School at Streeterville Resi

Optima, Inc. completed the buildout of Guidepost Montessori at Magnificent Mile’s new elementary school at Optima Signature, the firm’s mixed-use development at 220 E. Illinois St. in Streeterville. Completed by Optima’s team in three months, the new 14,000-square-foot elementary addition, which will serve grades 1-6, is now accepting registrations for in-person learning.
“As a vertically integrated firm, Optima was uniquely positioned to exceed construction timelines and deliver a new quality education choice in Streeterville at a time when so many parents need in-person alternatives to traditional schools,” said David Hovey Sr., CEO of Optima, Inc. and architect of Optima Signature.

The elementary expansion features two new mixed-age learning environments with the capacity to eventually serve 80 students. At present, though, spots are limited as the network operates with smaller class sizes and heightened health and safety protocols due to COVID-19.
