Commercial competition, and the demise of the Eaton's chain in 1999, contributed to the decline and fall of DON MILLS CENTRE. By the time of this circa-2004 layout, the mall was occupied mostly by mom & pop-type tenants. Meanwhile, its proprietor was devising a lifestyle-like redevelopment of the property.


In this image, and the two that follow, we have parting views of DON MILLS CENTRE, which was given a wrecking ball renovation in late 2006. Above, we see Charles Staffer's "Don Mills Montage", which graced the exterior of the Eaton's anchor store.

This snapshot was taken in the original 1955 section of the mall. Of course, by this time, the area had been fully-enclosed and given at least a couple of face lift refurbishments.

Lastly, we have a view of the mall's Northwest Entrance, which had been rebuilt during a 1997-1998 remodeling.

We move on to the descendant of DON MILLS CENTRE. Originally known as SHOPS AT DON MILLS, and later renamed CF SHOPS AT DON MILLS, the open-air facility was the first quote-unquote "urban village" in Canada. One can't help but wonder just how idyllic this summertime scene might be in blustery cold, wintertime weather...

We conclude our DON MILLS excursion with a circa-2015 site plan of the "new & improved" retail hub. It is comprised of nearly 512,000 leasable square feet, with a toney tenant list of over 70 stores and services. Structures retained from the former enclosed mall are surrounded in blue.
