The unit, currently being occupied by a gifts and leisure shop, is situated close to the mall entrance and main concourse.
Last but not least, there is a 710 sq ft unit at the ground floor of Midpoint Orchard. It is one of the rare units directly opposite Somerset MRT Station and is currently leased to a moneylender.
