Chicago Senior Building Undergoes Retrofit

An outdated residential building once home to seniors is reopening as a modern, energy-efficient and affordable piece of Chicago real estate that seniors can once again call home.

The Ralph J. Pomeroy Apartments on Chicago’s North Side were built in 1992. The Chicago Housing Authority purchased the building in 2006 and closed it down for remodeling.

On November 8, 2011, the residential community will reopen with environmentally friendly improvements and more than 100 units of public housing for Chicago’s senior residents.

Some of those green upgrades include:

*Geothermal system

*Solar thermal panels

*Green roof

*Roof and courtyard terraces

This building is now a candidate for green certification.
