Sportsworld Dr.

This one gets a pass in my book as i'd consider that "historic", somewhat. Just like mill st in kitchener no longer has a mill. At least it's more unique than an international chain.

I am assuming in that example, the business was named after an area, not the opposite way.

Duke Food Block is fine, renaming the roadway to Holy Guacamole Dr would be the issue.

At Queen, no?  A sawmill was part of the Joseph Schneider farmstead.
