Toronto’s Hazelton Lanes Shopping Centre is officially a thing of the past. Earlier this week, landlord First Capital Realty officially changed the shopping centre’s name to Yorkville Village, as it integrates the renovated mall into the adjacent neighbourhood.
Hazelton Lanes’ first phase, at 55 Avenue Road, was built in 1976 and measured only 60,000 square feet. Because it opened before CF Toronto Eaton Centre, it managed to secure more upscale retailers than it may otherwise would have. Hazelton Lanes almost tripled in size in 1988 by adding address 87 Avenue Road to its north portion, hosting even more luxury retailers such as Hermes, Gianni Versace, Valentino, Fogal of Switzerland, Emanuel Ungaro, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, and others.
