Some big concerts might be coming to Charlestown.

The owners of the old HP Hood dairy complex on Rutherford Avenue, which is being redeveloped into a mixed-use housing and office campus, are in talks with companies to open a concert venue that could hold up to 4,000 people. That would make it the largest indoor facility of its kind in the city.

No operator has yet been signed, but officials with real estate firm Colliers International, which is planning the project, told neighborhood groups they are close to signing a deal with a national concert operator who would fill the venue perhaps 150 nights a year, according to a story in the Charlestown Patriot-Bridge.
