Optima Lakeview Marks First with WiredScore Gold Rating
Optima Lakeview, a 198-unit luxury apartment community in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood, is the first North American residential development to secure a WiredScore Gold rating for digital connectivity, said developer Optima Inc.
“At a time when people are working from home more than ever before, Optima Lakeview is proud to be a leader in ensuring residents can access a fast and reliable wireless connection throughout the building – whether they are in their home or using one of the many amenity areas,” said Optima president David Hovey Jr., AIA.
WiredScore research shows that four out of five Americans expect the Internet to work as reliably as any other utility, yet 86% of renters continue to have Wi-Fi connectivity issues and service disruptions. The new certification for digital infrastructure measures a building’s technology against benchmarks, including how connectivity will be delivered and planned utility upgrades as technology evolves.
