Longo’s 48,000 sq. ft. supermarket connected to the new Maple Leaf Square condominium and retail complex in downtown Toronto is a good example of a new full-service urban grocery store approachable from street level. It seems to have some underground parking but it does not have acres of adjacent surface parking.

Before voting next Monday on whether or not to loan/grant almost $10 Million to Vrancor for its Homewood Suites hotel/condo development, Hamilton city council should direct staff to explore with Vrancor and any interested supermarket chain the feasibility of roughing-in space for a full-service grocery store (though probably smaller and less opulent than the new Longo’s supermarket in Toronto) as part of or adjacent to the Homewood Suites complex.
