Every Year At Hawthorne You Will Experience

Here are some reasons our tenants love us.

(The Hawthorne-perks!)
  • Hawthorne Business Centre has been a great step for us as we transitioned from a home office. The space is clean, contemporary and well managed. It’s provided additional resources and facilities that have made handling our company growth a lot easier. The building includes a number of amenities and perks that we are able to offer staff—complimentary parking!
    Jay Hiltz, Creative Director, Kohoot
  • I've been located at The Hawthorne Business Centre, 380 Bedford Hwy for over 2 years and hoping to expand our footprint in the building and extend our stay indefinitely. The services provided are first rate and the staff go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Most important, there is a very professional environment here and when are customers are in town visiting it always leaves them with a positive impression.
    John Zafiris, VP Sales & Marketing
    Lorax Systems Inc.
  • The Hawthorne Business Centre is the best place to “come to work every day”. It is a first class business centre that focuses on us, the tenants, their customers.
    Linda Corkum, NSTSA
  • I have been a tenant of the Business Centre since 2007, and chose this location at the time because I felt it would be easy to find for my clients who come here from all over the Province. There is parking on site and easy access to the property, all valuable considerations for my clients. I have been constantly well cared for here and have had no issues that were not dealt with promptly and professionally. I would very definitely recommend the centre.
    Gary, Gary MacKenzie Accounting
  • The Health Care Human Resource Sector Council have been business tenants at 380 Bedford Highway since 2008. We enjoy our offices and the collegial atmosphere of the building. The staff are always willing to assist. It is a pleasure to bring people into our space for meetings and the board and meeting rooms are great facilities. For a small organization like ours, the “all in one” facility is perfect! Oh yes, the coffee is great!”
    Janet, Executive Director,
    Health Care Human Resource Sector Council

About Us

Hawthorne Business Centre is owned and managed by Hawthorne Capital Inc., a merchant bank. You might be asking yourself, “What’s a merchant bank?” Well, it’s a financial institution that typically provides capital to companies in the form of share ownership. They also offer consultations on corporate matters to the firms they invest in or lend to. But, what does Hawthorne have that most merchant banks do not? A business centre with office space for rent!


The business centre is located at the intersection of the Bedford Highway and Kearney Lake Road giving you convenient access to Bedford, Clayton Park, Downtown Halifax, and Burnside Industrial Park. Office spaces are equipped with furniture (executive desk, three chairs, filing cabinet), telephone service, high speed internet, air conditioning; with full administrative services available. Your business associates will be greeted in our professional reception area and our courteous staff is always present to tend to all your needs. There’s a kitchen too, with great coffee.


Our tenants benefit from 24-hour access to our security-monitored building, the use of multiple meeting spaces, large boardroom equipped with white board, flip charts and video projector. Nightly, our cleaning service works hard to keep your office clean and our workplace looking top-notch.


Hawthorne Business Centre provides a clean contemporary atmosphere for your place of business that is not only sophisticated but professional as well. It is an excellent solution for start-ups, satellite offices, and small businesses taking that first transitional step into a professional work environment.
