Diamond View is developed and managed by Capitol Broadcasting Co.’s (CBC) real estate division. Capitol is also the parent company of WRAL-TV and

FHI 360 will occupy about 95,000 square feet.  

“Throughout the selection process, we focused on identifying a location that reflects the vision and values of FHI 360,” said Albert J. Siemens, FHI 360 chief executive officer. “The effort to revitalize Durham’s urban area mirrors our own commitment to helping individuals and communities reach their highest potential. We are thrilled to be part of this exciting development here in Durham.”

Michael Goodmon, CBC vice president of real estate, said he is delighted that FHI 360 chose the downtown Durham site.

“FHI 360 is precisely the kind of innovative, globally-focused organization we had in mind when planning the revitalization of our historic campus,” he said. “We look forward to welcoming FHI 360’s talented, dedicated team to a campus and Durham community that shares its passion for making a difference.”
