Opened in 1964, owned by Trizec Corporation, Yorkdale Shopping Centre had over 93,000 m2 of retail space. This was by far the largest mall in Canada at the time and even in the world.
Yorkdale was the first Canadian mall to include two major department stores: Simpson's and Eaton's, under the same roof. At the edge of urban Toronto, the shopping centre necessitated the construction of the Spadina Expressway.
The mall was constructed with a one-way, two-lane road for trucks running beneath the centre. This led to retailers' basement storages. Yorkdale Shopping Centre included a sixty-foot tall atrium, 40-foot-wide halls and 27-foot ceilings. In 2006 renovations replaced the ceilings, windows, and skylights.
