- Marble Floors and Walls of the Historic Beverly Hills Post Office Receive a Refreshed Look -

NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Stuart Dean, an international provider of renowned architectural restoration services, has given a second life to the historic lobby of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.  Formerly the home of the Beverly Hills Post Office built in 1933, the building was recently renovated and expanded in preparation for its re-grand opening.  Stuart Dean stripped, waxed, honed and polished 4,400 square feet of green marble floors and cleaned 7,000 square feet of green marble walls.  Stuart Dean partnered with California Restoration & Waterproofing, who served as the historic restoration contractor for the owner and restores buildings all over southern California.  Nicknamed "The Wallis," the Center's grand opening gala event was hosted by Robert Redford, Brad Pitt, Jamie Tirsh and its namesake, Wallis Annenberg, who contributed to its renovation.
