The Motorists Mutual Building is a 286ft (87m) tall skyscraper located at 471 East Broad Street Columbus, Ohio. It was completed in 1973 and was designed by Brubaker/Brandt and Maddox NBD. It is the 18th tallest building in Columbus, has 21 floors, and 6 elevators. It is also the headquarters of the Motorists Mutual Insurance company.

The building follows the modern and international architectural styles and has a curtain wall facade system. The building overlooks a topiary garden located 2 blocks south of the building. The garden is a three-dimensional topiary model of the scene in George Seurat's painting "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Grand Jatte." The garden was also sponsored by Motorists Mutual.
