The Guardian Life Insurance Co. of America is establishing a Stamford office as a satellite to its New York City headquarters.
It was the second time this week Malkin Properties announced a New York company had chosen one of its Stamford buildings for a new office, after investment manager Tweedy Browne Co. L.L.C. announced it would move its headquarters to Metro Center.
Guardian is taking 13,000 square feet of space at First Stamford Place, which, like Metro Center, is adjacent to the Stamford Transportation Center commuter rail station.
“Our company is constantly growing in order to provide for our continually expanding customer base,” said Kristen Crimmins, senior transaction manager of Guardian, in a prepared statement. “When looking to establish a suburban satellite office to provide access to new talent beyond the geographic reach of our lower Manhattan headquarters, First Stamford Place proved to be a perfect fit.”
