Construction on the 33-story mixed-use tower dubbed “Cassidy on Canal” has surpassed the 14th level in the Fulton River District. Located at 350 N Canal Street, the 375-foot-tall high rise will contain 343 apartments and approximately 1,300 square feet of retail space. The project is a joint effort between The Habitat Company and Diversified Real Estate Capital LLC, and is replacing the former five-story Cassidy Tire Building.
Unit sizes range from studio to two-bedroom apartments, with some units featuring private balconies. The development will also provide a range of resident amenities such as a fifth-floor pool deck, spa and fitness center, media and gaming room, conference center, and a dog walk area.
Solomon Cordwell Buenz is behind the building’s uniquely angular architecture, whose shape is composed of multiple interlocking hexagonal prisms. The exterior is clad in floor-to-ceiling windows, bronze metal paneling, and metal accents in various tones. The developers have also indicated that some of the bricks of the previously occupying Cassidy Tire Building will be incorporated into the design.
The tower will include a garage with 123 parking spaces and a bike room. Additionally, residents will have close access to bus service for Routes 12, 37, 56, and 65, as well as the CTA Green and Pink Lines via a six-minute walk to Clinton station.
Construction on the $139 million project began early last fall, with McHugh Construction serving as general contractor. The project is expected to be completed by Spring 2024.
