Kuala Lumpur was founded in 1857 at the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers which name Kuala Lumpur literally means "muddy confluence". Kuala Lumpur gained historical significance in 1957 when the first Malayan flag was raised on the grounds of the cricket field, Merdeka Square, to mark the country's independence from British rule. Kuala Lumpur came of age in 1974, when it was formally detached from its mother state of Selangor and made into a unit of its own called the Federal Territory. Kuala Lumpur City Centre was also historically part of a suburban residential area north of the old Kuala Lumpur town that linked to the town via Ampang Road and populated by bungalows and mansions back in colonial early-20th century. As large scale development moved northwards from old Kuala Lumpur town after the 1950s, development of the area gradually shifted from low-density residential homes to high-density commercial complexes and offices raising the development of suburb into a new commercial centre for Kuala Lumpur. In 1988, the Selangor Turf Club site and adjoining residential parcels were sold to be cleared away for the KLCC project.
