CBC Honored for Building Addition and Renovation

CBC Headquarters
Capitol Broadcasting recently received a Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Community Appearance for the new building and other renovations to its Western Blvd Campus.

Capitol Broadcasting expanded its headquarters near downtown Raleigh last year, adding an additional building, renovating existing buildings and the WRAL Azalea Gardens and turning the offices into a veritable art gallery.   The Raleigh City Council honored CBC for these innovative improvements with a Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Community Appearance at a ceremony on Tuesday, October 22, 2013.

CBC received honors alongside thirteen other recipients including the First Presbyterian Church in Raleigh, The James B. Hunt Library on the N.C. State Campus, and Partnership Elementary School.  The A.J. Fletcher Foundation, established by CBC founder and the grandfather of CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon, received honors for the historic preservation and rehabilitation of its headquarters.  See the full list of award winners here.

Since 1983, the Raleigh City Council has presented the Sir Walter Raleigh Award to more than 200 developers, designers, community groups, civic clubs, churches and residents.
