It is considered one of the first malls in the island and was established to be the premier shopping destination during its time, and has maintained its status through the years.
The mall was opened to public in 1996 and was initially anchored by Metrojaya Department Store but has left after a few years. Currently, Cold Storage supermarket at the lower ground floor is its mini-anchor tenant.
