CHA Rehab Goes Green for Senior Community

The Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) has announced a rehab project involving a historic Edgewater building that will create 104 units for seniors and provide about 214 jobs in Chicago.

Funds for this project are expected to come from an $18.3 million competitive grant from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, aimed at providing energy efficient, green affordable senior housing. The Ralph J. Pomeroy Apartments were built in 1922 and were occupied by seniors until 2006, when the building was closed for renovations.
On Monday, Oct. 4 at 10:45 a.m., the CHA will be joined by a variety of public officials and community members at the official announcement and kick-off  of a green future for the Ralph J. Pomery Senior Apartments, located at 5650 N. Kenmore in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Ald. Mary Ann Smith (48th), U.S. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky and CHA CEO Lewis Jordan are expected to attend.
