Enter the email address in the format someone example. The main retail mall in the centre is organized around a long arcade , running parallel to Yonge Street. The Toronto Eaton Centre's interior passages also form part of Toronto's PATH underground pedestrian network, and the centre is served by two subway stations: Dundas and Queen on Line 1 Yonge—University. Additionally, the Eaton Centre is linked to a storey Marriott hotel.
The headquarters moved there from Jarvis Street. The lower four floors of the Eaton Centre location housed a retail store while the upper four floors housed the headquarters. Timothy Eaton founded a dry goods store on Yonge Street in the 19th century that revolutionized retailing in Canada, and became the largest department store chain in the country.
The Eaton's land, once the site of Timothy Eaton's first store, was occupied by Eaton's large Main Store, the Eaton's Annex and a number of related mail order and factory buildings.
As the chain's warehouse and support operations were increasingly shifting to cheaper suburban locales in the s, Eaton's wanted to make better use of its valuable downtown landholdings. In particular, the chain wanted to build a massive new flagship store to replace the aging Main Store at Yonge and Queen and the Eaton's College Street store a few blocks to the north.
In the mids, Eaton's announced plans for a massive office and shopping complex that would occupy several city blocks. The plan required the closing of a number of small city streets within the block: At one point, even the Old City Hall clock tower was to be demolished. After a fierce local debate over the fate of the city hall and church buildings, Eaton's put its plans on hiatus in The Eaton Centre plans were resuscitated in , although these plans allowed for the preservation of Old City Hall.
Controversy erupted anew, however, as the congregation of the Church of the Holy Trinity exhibited an increased willingness to fight the demolition plans for its church. Eventually, the Eaton Centre plans were revised to save Old City Hall and the church, and then revised further when Holy Trinity's parishioners successfully fought to ensure that the new complex would not block all sunlight to the church.
These amendments to the plans resulted in three significant changes to the proposed centre from the s concept. First, the new Eaton's store was shifted north to Dundas Street, as the new store would be too large to be accommodated in its existing location on Queen Street opposite its rival Simpson's , which is now the Hudson's Bay store as a result of the preservation of Old City Hall.
This resulted in the mall being constructed with Eaton's and Simpson's acting as anchors at either end. The second significant change was the reduction in the size of the office component, so that the Eaton Centre project no longer represented an attempt to extend the City's financial district north of Queen Street, as the Eaton family had contemplated in the s.
Finally, the bulk of the centre was shifted east to the Yonge Street frontage, and the complex was designed so that it no longer had any frontage along Bay Street. Old City Hall and the church were thus saved, as was the Salvation Army headquarters building by virtue of its location between the two other preserved buildings although the Salvation Army building was demolished in the late s to make way for an Eaton Centre expansion.
Eaton's partnered with the Cadillac Fairview development company and the Toronto—Dominion Bank in the construction of the Eaton Centre. At the time, the interior design of the Eaton Centre was considered revolutionary and influenced shopping centre architecture throughout North America.
The temporary wall at the south end was mirrored over its full height, to give an impression of what the complete galleria would look like. The old Eaton's store at Yonge and Queen was then demolished and the south half of the complex opened in its place in The same year, the north end of the complex added a multiplex cinema, Cineplex , at the time the largest in the world with 18 screens. Terauley Street, Louisa Street, Downey's Lane and Albert Lane were closed and disappeared from the city street grid to make way for the new complex.
Albert Street and James Street were preserved only to the extent of their frontage around Old City Hall although at the request of the Church of the Holy Trinity, the city of Toronto required that pedestrians be able to cross through the mall where Albert Street once existed at all times, which is still possible.
Trinity Square, however, lost its public access to Yonge Street, and became a pedestrian-only square with access via Bay Street. Many urban planners and designers have lamented the original exterior design of the Eaton Centre. The complex was oriented inwards, with very few street-facing retail stores, windows or even mall entrances to animate the exterior. Much of the Yonge Street façade, facing what was once one of Toronto's primary shopping thoroughfares, was dominated by a parking garage.
At the insistence of the Metro Toronto government, which had jurisdiction over major roads, the complex was set back from Yonge Street. The goal was to eventually add an additional lane to the street. As a result, the complex was set back a considerable distance from Yonge Street, thus further weakening the centre's streetscape presence.
The exterior of the Eaton Centre store was designed in the style of the s, intended at that time to be a statement of Eaton's dominance and its aspirations.
As of the early s, the Eaton Centre's owners have redesigned the mall's Yonge Street façade, bringing it closer to the street and making it more closely resemble an urban shopping district, with stores opening directly onto the street, and presenting a variety of façades to create the perception of an urban streetscape. Further redevelopments, in the late s and early s, added new retail space. The west side of the complex, opposite Albert Street, was expanded. One of the mall's two parking garages, the nine-storey Dundas Parkade on Dundas Street with its two spiral stack ramps and the multiplex cinema below it, was demolished in Upgrades include new flooring throughout, the redevelopment of the centre's two existing food courts, upgrades and expansions to washroom facilities, lighting improvements, new railings, new entry doors, and green initiatives.
The renovations have been completed in late Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the Eaton Centre since late Nordstrom and Samsung have their own stores on the northern end of the mall since the mids.
In , the pedestrian bridge linking the Eaton Centre and Hudson's Bay was rebuilt and was slightly rotated clockwise as well. At the time of the centre's opening in , the complex was marketed as "The Eaton Centre", before changing its name to "Toronto Eaton Centre" in the early s.
Despite the bankruptcy of the Eaton's department store chain in and the closure of a short-lived Sears Canada-owned revival in , the mall retained the Eaton Centre name, representing an ongoing tribute to Timothy Eaton and the small shop he once opened at this location. However, as Sears retained the Eaton's trademarks and other intellectual property , the name was used under licence until December , when Cadillac Fairview acquired the Eaton's IP outright. In early , mall management began an effort to enforce usage of the full "Toronto Eaton Centre" name.
However, at that time, exterior signage was inconsistent as to the centre's name, with signs facing Yonge—Dundas Square simply reading "Eaton Centre" while several others used the full name. Despite the controversy and criticisms, the centre was an immediate success, spawning many different shopping centres across Canada bearing the same brand name of Eaton.
The mall's profits were said [ who? Today, the Eaton Centre is one of North America's top shopping destinations, and is Toronto's most popular tourist attraction. One of the most prominent sights in the shopping mall is the group of fibreglass Canada geese hanging from the ceiling.
This sculpture, named Flight Stop , is the work of artist Michael Snow. It was also the subject of an important intellectual property court ruling. One year, the management of the centre decided to decorate the geese with red ribbons for Christmas, without consulting Snow. Snow sued, arguing that the ribbons made his naturalistic work "ridiculous" and harmed his reputation as an artist, and in Snow v Eaton Centre Ltd , the court ruled that even though the centre owned the sculpture, the ribbons had infringed Snow's moral rights.
The ribbons were ordered removed. The mall has stores and restaurants.
