Parkway Mall is a community-scale shopping centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, located at the southeast corner of Victoria Park Avenue & Ellesmere Road in the former borough of Scarborough.

Parkway Mall is more geared toward providing essential community and neighbourhood-level retail stores and services, rather than being a large-scale regional shopping destination, such as the nearby Fairview or Scarborough Town Centre.

History[edit]

Parkway Mall was built in the late 1950s, designed by Toronto architectural firm Bregman and Hamann. It was commissioned by the Bronfman family of Montreal through Fairview Corp. (later to become Cadillac Fairview), and may have been the first mall to have been thus commissioned. The plaza is owned by First Capital Realty.

Heritage status[edit]

In 2009, the city of Toronto nominated Parkway's supermarket as a heritage property. The nominated heritage site was in 1958 a supermarket with a distinctive curved roofline designed by Bregman and Hamann. It is currently a Metro store, but it was originally a Grand Union store under the Steinberg's name. It had been a Dominion up until 2008.
