ACC is already on the PATH.

And isnt there a skybridge connecting this development to the ACC. At the very least you would expect this building to be connected at the base to the ACC. It is suppose to have sports fan amenities within.

At least thats what I thought.

"Isn't Longo's part of the Weston (Loblaws) chain?"

Nope.

You may be thinking of Fortino's, which is part of Loblaws.

Longo's downtown: look no farther than today's picture. Is that the southeast corner of Bay and Queen?

It is definitely the SE corner of Bay and Queen, looking east.
However, I don't see Longos. I doubt they were at this location.

You're right; that's interesting. That "Lo" does resemble the first two letters of the Longo's logo.

But the sign actually says, "Loans". The HFC logo to its left is the giveaway.

Interesting, too, to see the Bay Cinema in its final days (that's the one whose facade was reconstituted from the old Custom House at Yonge + Front--familiar to "No Mean City" perusers)

My sis lives near there, good news about the alternatives to Loblaws and Dominion. When's Sobey's opening? Longos is a quality supermarket (it also sounds like Loblaws' Loeb chain) too!

"Loblaws' Loeb chain"

Loeb is a division of Quebec's METRO supermarkets, who also recently bought A&P/Dominion.

What was HFC?

Also, could the "LO..." not stand for Loewes? Did they not have theatres in this part of town?

HFC was a financial institutuin, and it stood for - I think - Household Finance Corporation. That would definitely make Loans out of the "Lo".

You've got it. HFC was ubiquitous way back when...

HFC was around until it was taken over by HSBC about a year ago.
