History of the Building

Melbourne's first department store, the large Mutual Store emporium was located on the corner of Flinders and Degraves streets. The company, established as a profit-sharing co-operative between shareholders and staff, was incorporated in 1872 but suffered a significant setback when fire destroyed the original building in 1891. Architects Reed, Smart & Tappin, who had designed the Melbourne Town Hall and the Royal Exhibition Building, designed a new building in the Mannerist style on the same site.

Despite the interruption, the company thrived and within a year of rebuilding, its range of products filled a catalogue of over 40 pages. After being home for almost 40 years to the Council of Adult Education, the building was converted into apartments. The Mutual Stores Ltd collection is held at the University of Melbourne Archives.


Construction in Melbourne CBD - Metro Tunnel Works

Works are underway to deliver two new underground stations in Melbourne's CBD at each end of Swanston Street. As a part of this project, there are various changes to pedestrian access, roads and existing transport options.

From September 1st 2019, eastbound lanes on Flinders Street are closed between Elizabeth and Swanston streets until 2022 as part of these works.

Such a great location, particularly for food, night life and shopping. We travelled as a family of 4 with kids aged 6 and 1 years old. The apartment was adequate in size and communication with the host exceptional. They were very kind to allow us a later check-out after finding out our flight home was delayed.
