New WFH demands from multifamily residents who need reliable connectivity have made smart building certifications a hot topic. Taylor Johnson client Optima, Inc. is among those forward-thinking developers leading the way in this area, as exemplified by projects like Optima Lakeview in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. The seven-story, 198-unit luxury apartment community at 3460 N. Broadway recently became the first North American residential development to secure a WiredScore Gold rating for digital connectivity. When it opens next spring, it will offer residents fast and reliable wireless service throughout the building. According to WiredScore, 4 out of 5 Americans expect the internet to work just like any other utility – yet 86% of renters continue to experience Wi-Fi connectivity issues and service disruptions. TJ issued a release on this groundbreaking achievement and Connect Commercial Real Estate was first to cover the news.
