When travelling on Toronto's subway system, I spotted this cheery sign. "Empress Walk?" I mused...what's this all about? I could hardly resist such a queenly invitation, so I found myself inside a spectacular hi-rise condo, anchored by local supergrocery Loblaw's. Apparently, you can just go downstairs and buy your food and they'll deliver it to your condo. There are three floors of shopping around a central circular atrium, not unlike the San Francisco Shopping Center. The whole thing is crowned by a two-storey movieplex. What I like most about them is their fabulous logo with a juggling figure of questionable gender...is it an empress? or just a queen?
