Fashionable new footbridge to tie Eaton Centre to Bay, Saks

Cadillac Fairview has unveiled its design for a new pedestrian bridge across Queen Street, tying CF Toronto Eaton Centre to Hudson’s Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue flagship locations. Work is expected to begin immediately with a target opening of this fall. Prior to installation, the bridge will be built beside the shopping centre on James Street and then lifted into place upon completion. The architectural company WilkinsonEyre was selected as the designers of the bridge. “We designed the bridge’s form to connect together the two inherent geometries of each building, transforming from the historical, circular arches of the Hudson’s Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue building to the modern rectangular geometry of CF Toronto Eaton Centre,” director at WilkinsonEyre Dominic Bettison said in the news release.
