Intuit QuickBase Relocates Headquarters to 150 CambridgePark Drive,
Strategic Relocation Increases Office Size to Accommodate Growth and Taps into
Boston’s Burgeoning Tech Talent
WALTHAM, Mass. -- May 15, 2013
QuickBase, a cloud-based collaboration platform from Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:
INTU), today announced it will be relocating its headquarters from Waltham,
Mass. to Cambridge, Mass. in early fall of this year. Local Intuit employees
from the Intuit Payments Solution Division, Intuit Partner Platform and CTO
team will also be joining QuickBase at the new location. The new site will
encompass 60,884 square feet at 150 CambridgePark Drive, owned by Equity
Office, in the Alewife section of Cambridge.
“The rapid growth of the QuickBase business and our other Intuit teams here
has created demand for more space and more talent. Relocating to the Cambridge
area allows us to directly tap into that talent,” said Allison Mnookin, vice
president and general manager of Intuit QuickBase, which was recently named
one of the Best Places to Work in Massachusetts by the Boston Business
Journal. “When selecting our new location, we carefully considered employees’
needs, including amenities, commutes, and specifically selected the Alewife
area due to its proximity to public transportation and easy access to the
surrounding university population. With the increased real estate and
first-class amenities, we’re building out a fun and collaborative work space.
We’re confident that current and future employees will thoroughly enjoy their
new work environment.”
QuickBase and the other business units will occupy two floors of the building,
which is 50 percent larger than the current QuickBase headquarters in Waltham
and has additional space available for expected growth. The move to Cambridge
marks Intuit’s continued goal of attracting the best and most qualified
candidates in the Boston area.
“Boston is the East Coast hub for technological innovation and has virtually
unparalleled engineering talent coming out of the surrounding universities,”
said Tayloe Stansbury, Intuit senior vice president and chief technology
officer. “This is a key reason why we’ve identified the city as a critical
region for us as we continue developing innovative market solutions.”
Located less than 10 miles from the current Waltham and Boston sites, and one
block away from the MBTA Alewife Station, the new location includes a number
of amenities, including free parking, a Whole Foods-run corporate café, bike
storage, walking and bike trails, childcare next door and a first-class
fitness center. The new office space also features additional perks, such as a
yoga and meditation room, locker room with showers, game room with ping pong
and Xbox Kinect, bocce ball court and fire pit.
“Equity Office is proud to welcome Intuit as an anchor tenant to our
campus-style complex at 150 CambridgePark Drive, which offers amenities that
suit the needs of Intuit’s workforce,” said Matthew George, vice president,
leasing, Equity Office, who managed the deal along with brokers Bart
Lammersen, managing director, Jones Lang LaSalle, Palo Alto, Calif., and
Charles Kavoogian, senior vice president / partner, CBRE/New England.
“The 125 and 150 CambridgePark Drive campus is an institutional-quality asset
that has changed the perception of West Cambridge. The properties have
experienced robust activity from all submarkets, including East Cambridge and
the suburbs,” noted Kavoogian.
