A New Address. But the Same Approach.
The Hopkins Group is packing its bags and moving to Collins Street.
The Hopkins Group prides itself on offering all the services you might need in order to take control of your financial future, all in one place.
Since our inception in 1980, we’ve had different names, different faces and different offices. Come March 2016, it’s time to mix things up again.
This year, The Hopkins Group is writing a new chapter in its rich history and moving to a new office space to better serve our clients’ needs and keep up with the growth of the company.
Our new premises are tailored for dynamic, productive and engaging interactions with our clients, suppliers and partners and we look forward to welcoming you to our exciting new workspace at 500 Collins Street – just around the corner from our old William Street premises.
The iconic location of 500 Collins Street will be an exciting new base for staff and clients alike. The building is a rejuvenated A Grade property icon, setting a new benchmark for environmental sustainability. While clients will benefit from a welcoming reception area and improved meeting rooms, staff can also look forward to state of the art amenities to ensure their time spent at work is enjoyable.
At the entrance to our building, you’ll find MJ Bale and Flight Centre. Our co-tenants include the Heart Foundation and Czech Republic Consulate and we’re just across the road from the Rialto Towers (and conveniently, Haigh’s Chocolates!).
Features of 500 Collins Street include:
- New destination control lifts
- First class change room and locker facilities
- Virtual concierge
- Extensive food and retail amenity
- Direct access to public transport and major arterials.
The offices have been redesigned with the help of ODC Design and they reflect the contemporary style of the rebrand which was rolled out last year when John Hopkins Group became The Hopkins Group.
The Hopkins Group is taking over the whole of Level 23, along with its ancillary businesses Lantern Property Partners and bdhSterling. To reach us, you’ll need to dial our floor number (23) into one of the touch pads at the lift lobby which will direct you which lift to hop into for easy access direct to our floor. The 11, 12, 48 and 109 trams all stop just outside our office on Collins Street and we’re a short walk to Southern Cross station, with Flinders Street and Flagstaff train stations just around the corner.

History of The Hopkins Group office locations
1980 - The first premise of the business was on Queens Road, Melbourne (in the St Kilda Road precinct) where the organisation began offering property investment advice based on John's belief that "if the property isn't right for the client, we won't recommend it."
1980s - The office was relocated to a new address on St Kilda Road to accommodate growing staff numbers and business expansion.
2004 - John Hopkins recognised that in order to create a truly holistic investment group, he needed to expand the service offering of his organisation. During this time Michael Williams (who was managing a successful financial planning organisation) was coincidently looking to add a dedicated property investment advisory arm to his business. And so the two joined forces, creating the financial service investment house John originally foresaw and moving to the Group's current location on William Street in Melbourne CBD.
2016 – The Hopkins Group takes the next step in its brand story and moves to a larger office so that all staff can work under the one roof on Level 23 at 500 Collins Street and continue to provide quality service to its clients, all in one place.
