Orchard Central (GPS: 1.3007, 103.83963) is a shopping mall on Orchard Road. Developed by Far East Organization at a cost of S$650 million, it was opened in 2009 to replace the Specialists Shopping Centre. Orchard Central has a total retail floor area of 387,988 sq ft. There are 12 shopping floors and 2 basement levels.

Orchard Central is touted as the first vertical shopping mall in Singapore. What this means is that the outlets are stacked vertically and are accessed through escalators. There are a total of 52 escalators at the mall, including six so-called super escalators, including the pair that transport shoppers from the main entrance directly to the fourth level. In addition, there are 12 glass elevators.
