This is one of the three, large, steel-framed buildings, made of grey concrete-block, that line the top of Swanston Street to the Franklin Street corner.
The building is named after Lt. Col. J. G. Gillespie, Melbourne Technical College Vice President in 1942–44, President in 1946 and Treasurer 1951–67. He was Treasurer when our name changed to the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1960.
