Toronto Eatons Centre | 220 Yonge St - Toronto
Eaton's partnered with the Cadillac Fairview development company and the Toronto–Dominion Bank in the construction of the Eaton Centre. The complex was designed by Eberhard Zeidler and Bregman + Hamann Architects as a multi-levelled, vaulted glass-ceiling galleria, modelled after the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy.
- The Toronto Eaton Centre attracts the most visitors of any of Toronto's tourist attractions.
- It is North America's busiest shopping mall, due to extensive transit access, its downtown location and tourist traffic.
- With 48,969,858 visitors in 2015 alone, the centre sees more annual visitors than either of the two busiest malls in the United States(Mall of America and Ala Moana Center), or Central Park in New York City.
- The number of visitors to the Toronto Eaton Centre in 2015 exceeds the total 2015 passenger counts at Toronto Pearson International Airport, Canada's largest and busiest airport.
- 1900 T. Eaton Co. bought Canada's first escalator, installing it directly opposite the main Yonge Street entrance of its sprawling store in advance of the Christmas crowds. "No waits for the elevator now; a customer simply steps on the 'escalator,' as it is called, and up he goes," wrote the Toronto Daily Star on its December unveiling.
