Sears Canada's head office in the upper levers of the former Sears was closed in when all liquidation finished of Sears Canada. Although neither has ever carried the Eaton name both did, however, contain Eaton's stores , these two malls were developed by the Eaton's chain and its partners, and both are "Eaton Centres" in all but name.

Commencing in the early s, Ontario 's provincial government poured millions of dollars over the course of a decade into the ODRP program in order to revitalize the downtown retail areas of smaller communities throughout the Province.

Typically, this involved the construction of new downtown malls to compete with growing suburban shopping opportunities. However, there was no business case or market analysis to justify the construction of these downtown malls. Many residents noted that the enclosed facilities represented the antithesis to the one unique aspect of downtown shopping, street-related stores. Often the new downtown mall had a "vacuum cleaner" effect of attracting the stronger street boutiques away from their neighborhoods to become tenants in unstable shopping centres.

The lack of free parking in the downtown area was the number one impetus for residents flocking to suburban malls which had free parking, which did not help the cause of the downtown malls whose garages charged fees, collected by the municipalities who usually financed the construction mall garages.

Nonetheless, in a highly criticized business decision, Eaton's became a partner in the program, and its stores served as the anchor tenant in many of these malls. The flagship location of the Hudson's Bay department store chain, which has been part of the complex since Cadillac Fairview's purchase of the building in , [4] is connected to the rest of the complex by a skywalk over Queen Street West, and itself is bounded by Yonge Street to the east, Queen Street West to the north, Richmond Street West to the south, and Bay Street to the west.

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.
