Easton Town Center ("Easton") is a large mixed-use center in Columbus, Ohio, United States. It is designed to look like a classic American main street, with public spaces, fountains, a street grid, and metered storefront parking.

A real estate project of Les Wexner, the founder, chairman and CEO of nearby Limited Brands, Easton comprises convert|1500000|sqft|m2 of retail space built upon approximately 90 acres within a larger convert|1300|acre|km2|0|sing=on development. The 90 acre retail development was co-developed by The Georgetown Company and Steiner + Associates, while the overall convert|1300|acre|km2|0|sing=on Easton area is a partnership between Limited Brands and The Georgetown Company.

Expansion

Current expansion at Easton Town Center includes the addition of Tiffany & Co. and the expansion of Henri Bendel on the northeast corner of the Central Park Fountain, as well as the addition of the M/I Homes Design Center on Gramercy Street adjacent to Ruehl No.925.

ecurity

Easton has an age-restricted curfew of 9:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Persons under the age of 16 are not permitted in the interior areas of the center without an adult present. Persons over 16 are permitted if they present valid government-issued photo identification. The reason for the curfew that is most commonly cited by the Easton security staff is the change from a "family-oriented" environment during the day to a more "adult-oriented" venue during the night.Fact|date=April 2007
