The first public record of the Halifax Shopping Centre was filed in 1956 when Eatons applied for a re-zoning of a property which was formerly the site of the St. Patrick's Boys Home. Work on the future site of the enclosed Halifax Shopping Centre site began in February 1961.

The centre was developed by Webb and Knapp (Canada) Ltd. It was designed and engineered by staff members at Webb and Knapp in consultation with The Graham Company and Associate Architect Gregory Lambros. Anglin-Norcross Maritime Ltd. served as general contractors on the initial construction.

Halifax Shopping Centre was opened at 9:30 A.M. on Tuesday, September 11, 1962 – billed as “The Marketplace of the Maritimes”. The grand opening publicity claimed that “never in the history of Halifax have so many stores opened on one day!”

The Thursday, September 13 edition of The Chronicle Herald included a thank you from Halifax Shopping Centre’s owners, by Triton Ltd., which estimated the opening day crowd to have been 27, 000 people.

In 1989, Halifax Shopping Centre was expanded to include a food court, an additional 75, 000 square feet (7, 000 m2) of retail space and three parking decks.

In 2001, Halifax Shopping Centre purchased and renovated the former Sears store and surrounding land adjacent to Halifax Shopping Centre, boosting total leasable area to over 1, 061, 361 square feet (98, 603.7 m2). The redevelopment was renamed Halifax Shopping Centre Annex.

In 2007, Halifax Shopping Centre underwent a major renovation to update the enclosed shopping centre, its decor and way-finding structures.
