"We’re excited to bring our subsidiaries under one roof at a TripAdvisor branded office, as one family," says TripAdvisor spokesperson Julie Cassetina. FlipKey had previously been in Boston's Leather District (space that will soon be occupied by the TechStars Boston program), and Smarter Travel in Charlestown.
The new TripAdvisor office was designed by Boston-based Baker Design Group. A few renderings are below; in the picture above, the TripAdvisor building is on the right, the Boston Garden on the left. In November, TripAdvisor broke ground on a new 282,000 square foot headquarters building in Needham. It is expected to open in 2015.
