Charter Communications officially opened its new Stamford, Connecticut, headquarters Monday, a state-of-the-art facility that has been five years in the making. 

Charter first unveiled plans for a  new Stamford HQ in 2017. The new facility  was officially unveiled on Monday (June 6) in a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont and Stamford Mayor Caroline Simmons. Located in the city’s revitalized Harbor Point neighborhood, Charter’s new corporate campus provides the company’s Stamford-based employees with an amenity-rich, commuter-friendly workspace with room for continued growth.

“Over the past 10 years we have been proud members of the Stamford community and have experienced tremendous growth,” Charter chairman and CEO Tom Rutledge said in a press release. “Our Stamford headquarters has grown from a handful of employees in a small portion of a single floor to 1,700 employees in a two-building, 900,000 square-foot campus. This region provides access to a robust talent base and at Charter, we are committed to attracting and retaining highly-skilled employees who live and work in this area and to contributing to the growth and success of this community.”

“Charter is a leading Connecticut-based business, invested in the success of the state, Stamford and the many communities it serves across the country,” Lamont said in a press release. “The company’s continued growth is a testament to its commitment to employees, customers and the communities in which they live and work.”
