A snapshot taken at the November 1966 dedication. Here we see the northeast facade, which faced Rua Iguatemi (Iguatemi Street), namesake of the shopping facility. In 1971, the name of the thoroughfare was changed to Avenida Brigadeiro Faria Lima, in honor of José Vicente Faria Lima, mayor of Sao Paulo between 1965 and 1969.

In our first site plan, we see a provisional layout of the original IGUATEMI mall. The complex encompassed 387,500 square feet. Its parking area accommodated 1,000 autos. With no vintage source material available, some guesswork was involved in the creation of this layout.
