Zipcar discloses its new Innovation District address --- 35 Thomson Place
Zipcar Inc., the Cambridge-based vehicle sharing service that rents cars by the hour, disclosed more details Wednesday on its plans to relocate from Cambridge to the Innovation District in Boston.
Zipcar made public its plans last summer but did not announce its new address.
In a Wednesday press release, Zipcar said it will move to 35 Thomson Place and occupy all six floors of the 46,000 square foot building.
Zipcar has been headquartered in Cambridge since the company was founded in 2000. Plans call for more than 200 employees to move to Zipcar’s new Boston corporate headquarters next year. Zipcar said its new landlord is Crosspoint Associates Inc.
“The move comes as a result of conversations years ago between Zipcar Chairman and CEO Scott Griffith and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino,” the release said. “At that time, the two discussed a shared vision for the transformation of the Seaport district into a hub for technology-oriented companies.”
Zipcar’s fleet now numbers more than 10,000 vehicles in urban areas and on college campuses throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Austria.Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
