Demolition work has now begun for the five-story Cassidy Tires building, located at 344 N Canal Street in Fulton River District.

Just north of the Metra tracks, the project will yield a total of 343 for-rent units atop ground-level retail.

The project comes from developer Mike Breheny who is working with local architects Studio Dwell on the masonry-clad building.

This week, YIMBY stopped by the rising core at 1000M, currently Chicago’s fourth tallest construction project. Located at 1000 S Michigan Avenue just across from Grant Park, this 788-foot-tall, 73-story residential tower is set to house a total of 738 rental units. The developer trio of JK Equities, Time Equities, and Oak Capitals had originally planned 506 condominiums, but ultimately pivoted due to the city’s booming apartment market.
