The historic Lieberg Building at 911 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena has been restored, and the law firm of Robert Mills Inc. has occupied the entire top floor.
Built as a department store in 1926, the building was reduced to its four original walls before the renovation, designed by Feola-Dennihan Partnership AIA of Glendale began.
Irvine-based Clock Construction completed the job in six months at a cost of $917,000. The project, contracted by Trammell Crow Co. (which is also handling leasing), consists of 30,000 square feet of office and commercial space on three floors and a basement.
Restoration included such details as refinishing original doors, patching and cleaning the terra-cotta front exterior, and preserving original copper mullions. The building also was completely rewired and brought up to seismic and other city codes.
