The development is currently the tenth largest building in the world by floor area and has also been tagged as the "world's largest building ever built in a single phase", with 700,000 m2 (7,500,000 sq ft) of built up floor area. This building consists of a shopping mall, business office's and leisure centre with over 1000 retail shops, 1200 luxury service suites, 65 food outlets and entertainment attractions such as Berjaya Times Square Theme Park and GSC MAXX (formerly IMAX) 2D and 3D theatre.
In April 2005, Borders Group opened its first franchise store here which was the largest Borders store in the world at the time. However, due to the 2010 economic downturn it has since been downsized into a smaller operation called Borders Express. In 2016, this Borders Express store was closed.
Originally, the land belonged to the millionaire and philanthropist Cheong Yoke Choy before World War II. His bungalow stood there until the entire parcel of land was purchased by Berjaya Group Tan Sri Vincent Tan for the development of the current Berjaya Times Square Kuala Lumpur.
