The station, being located in an area with limited space, required it to be built underground at about 28m deep. This was to avoid demolishing buildings along the Jalan Bukit Bintang road to make way for construction.

The station also contains the longest escalator for all 31 stations along the SBK route at 20 meters.

Bukit Bintang MRT station is also unique in a sense that it is the only station with split platforms, which means the platforms are stacked one on the other: one for Sungai Buloh-bound trains and one for Kajang-bound trains.
