Corporate HQ and the Magnetic Pull of Cities - strategy+business
It was reported recently that the insurance giant Aetna would be moving its corporate headquarters from its ancestral home — Hartford, Conn. — to New York.

The move echoes a move that General Electric made last year, when it decided to move its corporate headquarters from suburban Fairfield, Conn., to…downtown Boston.

The dynamics driving Aetna’s move are quite similar to those that pushed GE to look elsewhere, as we noted last year.

Vecna + VGo Autonomous Robots Made in Cambridge - BostInno
What you may not know is that every product that Vecna offers is made on its Cambridge campus.

“Building things is what it’s been about from the start,” Daniel Theobald, co-founder and chief innovation officer at Vecna, said. “Robotics has been our focus since the beginning.”

So it would only make sense for Vecna to take on all of the prototyping and assembly operations itself, rather than outsourcing them. Theobald says making everything onsite allows the company to accelerate the engineering and manufacturing processes.

Advanced Manufacturing: Inside Silverside Detectors' Cambridge Factory - BostInno
In an unassuming building in Cambridge, Mass., a staff of nine--one physicist, five engineers, two business people and one assembly worker--is putting together devices that can flag the presence of a nuclear bomb. This is Silverside Detectors, a three-year-old company that looks much like other startups that, like it, have taken advantage of incubators and accelerators in Boston's venture economy. Unlike most of them, it is manufacturing its product here on the outskirts of the city.

Why Corporate America Is Leaving the Suburbs for the City - The New York Times
For decades, many of the nation’s biggest companies staked their futures far from the fraying downtowns of aging East Coast and Midwestern cities. One after another, they decamped for sprawling campuses in the suburbs and exurbs.

Now, corporate America is moving in the other direction.

In June, McDonald’s joined a long list of companies that are returning to downtown Chicago from suburbs like Oak Brook, Northfield and Schaumburg.

GE move could signify larger trends toward cities - Connecticut Post
The competition to land General Electric’s headquarters, with Connecticut’s hopes appearing to wane in recent weeks, is often framed in terms of taxes. Connecticut, by many measures, is a high-cost state for businesses, and GE is supposedly looking for relief.
But the nature of GE’s Fairfield headquarters — along with details about its preferred landing spots — raise the possibility that costs may only play one role, and that the company leaning toward the kind of centralized, walkable communities that are in fashion now and away from an isolated, suburban office park like its current space.

Boston Was An Economic Mess. Now, It’s A Booming City. What Happened? - Radio Boston
Sixty years ago, Boston was a basket case, facing a bleak economic future. After peaking in the 1950s, the city’s population collapsed. It was an almost catastrophic exodus, as 30 percent of its residents — wage-earners and tax payers — left, many of them to the suburbs.

Jump forward to today, and it’s a dramatically different story: Boston in 2015 has the highest concentration of startup companies in America, it’s at the center of the global biotech industry and it’s home to a booming tourist trade and a red hot real estate market.
