Berjaya Times Square KL is a twin tower complex containing a shopping centre and two five star hotels located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was opened in October 2003 by the then Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad. Both towers are convert|203|m|ft|0|lk=on|abbr=off tall, with 48 floors.

It is tagged as the "world’s largest building ever built in a single phase", with 7.5 million square feet (700,000 m²) of built up floor area. It is set to become an international landmark offering shopping, luxury accommodation, business, food and abundant entertainment.

Currently, it has space for more than 1000 retail shops (of which many are vacant), 1200 luxury service suites, 65 food outlets to suit many tastes and entertainment attractions such as Asia’s largest indoor theme park, Cosmo's World and Malaysia’s first-ever IMAX 2D & 3D theatre which is located on the 10th Floor. In April 2005, Borders Group opened its first franchise store here. Currently, the store is the largest Borders store in the world. Other popular stores include Metrojaya, which is a multi-level major department store, and many more.

The Kuala Lumpur Monorail's Imbi station is linked to the building by a footbridge.

History

Originally, the land belonged to the millionaire and philanthropist Cheong Yoke Choy before World War 2. His massive bungalow once stood proudly until the entire land was purchased by Berjaya Group Tan Sri Vincent Tan for the development of the current Berjaya Times Square.

Trivia

Berjaya Times Square was the first location that teams of The Amazing Race Asia 1 had to visit and complete a task of abseiling from the 8th floor of the mall.
