The third of the trio of buildings that dominate the top end of Swanston Street, this 1970s-style steel-framed, concrete block building is on the corner of Swanston and Franklin streets.
Unlike its sister buildings, 10 and 12, whose imposing grey walls line Swanston Street, this later addition to the close-knit family presents a more welcoming front along Franklin Street with its multiple, horizontal rows of large windows.
It is named after former RMIT principal, Brigadier P. P. Jackson.
