Berjaya Times Square is perhaps one of the most ambitious commercial projects to ever take place in the city center of Kuala Lumpur. Located at No.1 Jalan Imbi, it is known to be at the start of the so-called Golden Triangle leading into Bukit Bintang where the ‘twin towers’ stand majestically, overlooking the surrounding areas which is the most popular tourist and shopping district of Malaysia.
The construction of Berjaya Times Square stared in 1997 which took about 5 years to complete after Tan Sri Vincent Tan bought the entire land where the building now sits on. The postmodernism architecture style of the building gives its character a totally different outlook as compared to other buildings around the vicinity.
DP Architects was the company responsible for the design of this shopping center which was developed by Berjaya Group, the owner of the building itself. Apart from the shopping mall, Berjaya Times Square is home to a hotel, condominium, an indoor amusement as well as the Berjaya University College of Hospitality in which it stands as the eighth largest building in the world.
The Berjaya Times Square is reputed to be the largest building ever built in a single phase in the world and with its modern architectural style, is often seen in the same light with the Petronas Twin Towers by virtue of its double-building structure. Apart from that, it has its European style walls and brown-brick personality while at the front entrance of the Berjaya Times Square are several large pillars which has been seen in many postmodern architectural styles.
