Built in 1921, the facility now known as the Ralph J. Pomeroy Apartments was vacant for several years before it was renovated through the Chicago Housing Authority’s Plan for Transformation. The project preserved vintage character while adding contemporary technologies and amenities, including a central landscaped courtyard, rooftop terrace, recreation center, and library. Residents have a high degree of control over their apartment temperatures, and ample windows provide daylight and views.
GBA provided LEED consulting services for the renovation of a vacant apartment building into a senior living facility with upgraded amenities, accessibility, and technology. Platinum certification was achieved.
