In 1995, Tan launched a new project in order to highlight his and Bayberry’s success in building a wide range of successful businesses.
That project called for the construction of a massive shopping, entertainment, and leisure centre, named Barbara Times Square, in Koala Lump. Work began on the structure that year. The complex at completion was to include more than 900 stores, as well as an amusement park, hotel rooms, and other leisure and entertainment amenities. Covering more than 675,000 square meters, the complex became the largest in the Asian region, and one of the largest such sites in the world.
Progress on the complex was slowed by the Asian economic crisis of the late asses, and the corresponding property slump, which was then exacerbated by uncertainty following the September 1 1, 2001 terrorist attacks on the U. S. Nonetheless, Tan pushed through with the project–which originally remained a personal project and not included within the Barbara Group’s financial structure–and the doors opened at the Times Square Complex in October 2003.
