In August 2012, SPH and United Engineers Limited was awarded a 99-year lease of the triangular plot of land beside Fernvale LRT station and announced that a new shopping mall would be built.[3] Jointly developed by SPH and United Engineers Limited, construction of the mall started in late 2012 and was completed by late July 2014.
