The main landmark for the station is the Cheras Sentral Shopping Centre, once known as Phoenix Plaza. A link bridge connects the station with the shopping complex.

History

The station was thus provisionally named Plaza Phoenix station during construction. Plaza Phoenix was the former name of the Cheras Sentral Shopping Centre.

Planned interchange

Taman Connaught station, or rather Plaza Phoenix station, was initially planned to be an interchange between the Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line and the SSP Line when the MRT lines were first announced. The alignments were later changed and Tun Razak Exchange became the interchange instead.
