The building does not have a shared laundry room, but tenants will be allowed to use the laundry room of Yläkiventie 4, which will be completed in spring 2023. There are no parking spaces at this property.
Yläkiventie 7 is located 500 meters from the Myllypuro metro station, a mall and the Metropolia campus. There is also Stadin AO (Helsinki Vocational College and Adult Institute) on the Myllypuro campus area as well as Helsinki's new language high school in 2023. A total of four Hoas houses will be completed in the area, so a large concentration of student life is emerging in Myllypuro.
