The project would include ground-floor commercial space and 124 parking spaces, according to the alderman’s newsletter. 

The development would replace the five-story Cassidy Tire warehouse. The Henry J. Schlacks-designed building was constructed in 1902 and formerly housed the Tyler & Hippach glass company, according to Curbed.

In 1908, the building was moved 200 feet from its original location, according to the report.
