The Ralph J. Pomeroy Apartments at Hollywood and Kenmore Avenues will be renovated for the Chicago Housing Authority as part of their "Plan for Transformation." The building will be their flagship senior living center. The reasons for renovation versus replacement, and the process of documenting, planning, and rebuilding this vacant 10-story historic structure as a fully modern, community-oriented, residential facility will be presented and discussed. Presenters include Kenneth DeMuth, AIA, of Pappageorge Haymes Partners and John Gerut, Chicago Housing Authority.
