Assembled, entitled, and developed by Normandy, Founders Park is a pre-eminent mixed-use campus located along Boston’s technology corridor, Route 128/95, in Needham, MA. Normandy led the masterplanning and re-entitlement of 41 acres of land in a former industrial park to create a walkable, mixed-use, amenity rich campus environment for corporate headquarters users, their employees, visitors and neighbors. The development kicked off with the build-to-suit headquarters for TripAdvisor, Inc., a 281,000 square foot LEED Gold six-story office building. Founders Park’s latest phase includes the delivery of 89 A Street, headquarters of SharkNinja, which opened in 2017 as well as The Kendrick, a 390 unit multifamily apartment building opening in summer 2018. NBCUniversal will commence construction of their regional digital media center in 2018 with an opening in 2019.
