The Chicago Housing Authority is set to open an environment-friendly senior apartment building.

The renovated Ralph Pomeroy Senior Apartments will open Tuesday on the city's North Side.

The CHA bought the building in 2006. It was closed for renovations that include a geothermal system, roof and courtyard terraces, solar thermal panels and a green roof.

The building will have 104, one-bedroom public housing units.
