The newest downtown high-rise near the Chicago River is lining up renters for next month's opening.

Context: The Cassidy on Canal building (350 N. Canal) is a 33-story mixed-use glass building that jets up 375 feet into the air from the Fulton River District, spitting distance from the Kinzie bridge.

By the numbers: The project, developed by Habitat and others, cost $139 million.

  • It will be a mix of studios ($2,550) to two-bedrooms ($5,660).
  • The penthouse will set you back $10,810 per month.

The intrigue: The sleek building plays homage to its previous tenant, Cassidy Tires. The Chicago mechanic operated a small shop in that location for almost 50 years.

  • The building torn down to make room for this tower had been there since 1908.
  • The new tower isn't just paying homage with the name. It also used some of the bricks from the demolished building to create the new facade.
