The ever so popular car-sharing company known as Zipcar will soon be moving its headquarters from 25 First Street in Cambridge to Bostons Innovation District. Recently termed this Innovation District by Mayor Thomas M. Menino, this area roughly comprising of South Bostons Seaport and Fort Port Districts is hoped to become a new vibrant residential area of the city in the next few years.
Mayor Menino has been quoted regarding the meaning behind this Innovation District by saying, A new approach is called for on the waterfront one that is both more deliberate and more experimental. The massive expanse of the South Boston waterfront, with its existing knowledge base, opportunity for growth, and world-class infrastructure is ripe to produce world-class products and services. Moreover, we also highlighted in a past blog that there are already many projects that are either in the works or are anticipated to begin very soon.
Scott Griffith, the CEO of Zipcar, shared that the Innovation District, ...will provide Zipcar with exactly the atmosphere we are looking for to attract and retain a great pool of talent as we move closer to achieving our vision of more car sharers than car owners in major cities around the globe. The over two hundred individuals of Zipcar will soon call this rapidly developing District their working home. This news is something that comes as great excitement for Zipcar users who can blatantly see how dedicated the firm truly is to their growth and future products and services.
