Job search firm Indeed continued its much-anticipated expansion in downtown Stamford in the third quarter, according to an economic development report from the city, taking 24,000 more square feet at 107 Elm St. as it plans to grow its staff to 1,700.

The city of Stamford’s Office of Economic Development released its third-quarter of 2019 economic development report last week, showing the Indeed lease among several other transactions in the city’s commercial core  between July and September of this year.

“Stamford saw numerous signs of positive growth during the third quarter of 2019. Substantial development plans coupled with numerous corporate relocations are highlights of Stamford’s bright future,” the report noted.

The city now has 900 more jobs within its borders than the same time last year, the report said, while unemployment in the city is down half a point to 3.1 percent.

Starting at the end of last year, Indeed’s Stamford office went on a hiring spree, announcing plans to invest $66 million toward a 500-employee expansion, set to finish in 2031. The expansion is being aided by a 15-year, $10 million low-interest loan for equipment and leasehold improvements from the state Department of Economic and Community Development.
