The dramatic facade aside, the building's interior is no less grand. On the ground floor are beautiful black & white wall murals, and some of the tenants may also contribute to the old world aesthetic with vintage cars in the parking spots.

The office units also have a grand design with 6m-high ceilings and 2.4m-tall windows, and the Strata units have a spiral staircase connecting to the upper floors.

When you need a break from work, there's a beautiful all-black garden terrace to relax and people-watch à la Quasimodo from Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Some neighbours you'll have while working at The Mill are local fashion label The Editor's Market, artist Cyril Kongo and bespoke men's tailor Kevin Seah.

This stunning tower isn't just worth a visit for the photo opportunities, there's also a new coffee hangout. Alchemist has just opened a new Victorian-style outlet at #02-02 of The Mill, complete with tufted seats, cool architectural details and grand chandeliers. Opening hours are from 9am to 6pm daily.
