Stamford-based Charter Communications, the second-largest cable company in the country after market leader Comcast, is still in the process of building a new headquarters in the city’s Harbor Point redevelopment district, but it’s already planning for a second building at the site, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The company recently filed for permits to construct a second, 9-story, 300,000-square-foot building at 406 Washington Boulevard, it said in a statement provided to the outlet. “Charter is pleased to be growing in Stamford, bringing more jobs and investment to the city,” the company said. It remains unclear how many jobs a second building would bring to Stamford, although the first is expected to create around 1,100 positions, the outlet reported. HLW, an architectural firm that recently set up shop in Stamford, has been retained to design Charter’s new headquarters. [FBJ]
