Charter Communications is expanding its presence in the Denver area, as the MSO will lease and occupy a new 12-story, 306,000-square foot tower in Greenwood Village along with plans to add 800 high-tech jobs in the region.
Shea Properties this week announced the commencement of construction on the third and final phase of the mixed-use Village Center Station in Greenwood Village, noting that the “Class A” office tower will be 100% occupied by Charter.
The new tower, based south of Denver, will house Charter’s entire Product, Software Architecture & Development, Technology Services, Northwest Regional Office, Real Estate and Strategic Procurement organizations, as well as local members of its corporate Human Resources, Facilities, Spectrum Reach, Field Operations and Spectrum Enterprise teams.
“This state-of-the-art workplace will be well suited to support a wide range of business purposes including the design and development work powering all of Charter’s products and services,” Rich DiGeronimo, Charter’s EVP of product and strategy, said in a statement. “Charter has made a multi-million dollar investment in the Denver community, and in addition to its already large corporate presence, plans to add over 800 new high tech jobs in the coming years.”
The new Charter building will complete a three-phase, approximately 900,000 square foot Village Center Station development, Shea said.
The main lobby of each building in Village Center Station opens onto a public plaza that will include water features set to music and lighting displays, outdoor meeting spaces and WiFi connectivity.
The architect for Charter’s new building is Denver-based Davis Partnership Architects, Shea said, noting that general contractor Adolfson and Peterson Construction has begun construction with initial occupancy of the building expected in early 2018.
