A bland and particularly bulky International styled building with vast wrap-around balconies cladded in a marble finish. One of Melbournes 1960s group of boxy towers, the National Mutual was built completely over the old Eastern Market site, making use of new plot ration rules to set back on a plaza of civic scale. A 3 level podium faces onto Flinders Lane, with an entrance to one of Melbournes earliest underground carparks.
