Ground breaks on TripAdvisor's new $120M headquarters

Having recently launched a new advertising model and named Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff and LinkedIn Senior VP Dipchand “Deep” Nishar to its board of directors, the operator of the world’s most popular travel website needs more room to grow.

This week developers Normandy Real Estate Partners and Greenfield Partners broke ground on a 282,000-square-foot office building in Needham, Mass., where TripAdvisor says more than 500 of its employees will work when the building — more than twice the size of the company’s existing headquarters — is ready in mid-2015.
