The area was previously the "Devonshire Raceway" in the earlier part of the 20th century, until burning down in 1939. The mall originally had just 70 stores, but has had five expansions: in 1974, 1985, 1987, 1995, and 2000. The mall was also slightly damaged during the Windsor Tornado of 1973, but was completely repaired. Devonshire Mall is located southeast of the interchange of E.C. Row Expressway and Howard Avenue, and across Howard Avenue from the Roundhouse Center shopping plaza (formerly a roundhouse and turnabout/ train station until the 1920s). The address for the mall is 3100 Howard Avenue. The mall is currently owned and operated by Ivanhoe Cambridge, and displays the names of the streets its main hallways exit to ("Howard Street", for example). It also has plaques at its entrances telling of its date of opening, and contributors to its construction and opening.
