118 Commerce, Heystek Building, or also called the Coliseum. Originally opened as a a skating rink in 1910, with its massive arch and carved lion heads at the front entrance, its signature presence became home to conventions, dances, and yes, even boxing matches. The Coliseum also connected directly with neighboring buildings on Division Avenue, where the all important catalyst of commerce, the streetcars, rolled up and down the avenue all day and night.
